Canine Hydrotherapy , Dog swimming pool in Basingstoke

Canine hydrotherapy is now available in our new centre in Basingstoke Hampshire. We specialise largely in the rehabilitation of dogs, cats and other small animals following injury or surgery.

We offer a professional service in our large heated canine hydrotherapy pool that has ample space to encourage natural free swimming. All patients will be assessed by a Chartered Veterinary Physiotherapist. The therapist will then devise a tailored rehabilitation programme and liaise closely with your vet to ensure the best possible care for your dog/ animal.
