Fully qualified & experienced dog hydrotherapy specialist, using a heated underwater treadmill.
Paws 2 Water Hydrotherapy Specialists is run by Ceri Johnson MIRVAP ICH who is fully qualified and experienced in dog and small animal hydrotherapy. Along with her qualified and dedicated team, the centre provides tailor-made rehabilitation and fitness programmes and is the first INDEPENDENT unit in North Wales to specialise in dog hydrotherapy using a heated underwater treadmill.
Hydrotherapy means "water therapy" and has been proven to significantly aid in the rehabilitation of many conditions and/or surgical procedures. Paws 2 Water hydrotherapy specialists provide treatment to dogs and small animals recovering from injury, operation or suffering from ongoing conditions, ranging from orthopaedic, soft tissue or neurological. This is achieved using specialised and individual hydrotherapy treatments and techniques with an underwater treadmill. We also create weight management programmes, providing a low-weight bearing environment to support over loaded limbs and improve cardiovascular fitness leading to increased weight loss. Other benefits include fitness treatments personalised and developed for agility, performance or working dogs.
All patients to Paws 2 Water Hydrotherapy Specialists will need to be referred from your local Veterinary Surgeon, as required by the standards set by IRVAP (The Institute of Veterinary & Animal Physiotherapists). Download referral form
