Does your senior dog have trouble getting around in the cold winter temperatures? Then hydrotherapy at Leesville Animal Hospital could be a solution for you!
As the temperatures drop during the winter it can get increasingly difficult for your senior dogs to get around. There are a number of things that you can do to help your dog as the mercury plummets including adding regular joint supplements to their daily regimen. Hydrotherapy is also a great way to help to ease the stiffness your senior and arthritic dogs may feel in their joints during the winter.
Here at Leesville our hydrotherapy tank is nice and warm – think of it as a canine hot tub! Add in the slow motion of a treadmill to give your dog some exercise while also stretching their limbs gently and you have a great way to ease your pup’s aching joints.
All of our hydrotherapy technicians are trained in creating the prime opportunity for your dog to benefit from their time in our hydrotherapy tank which includes a schedule of tank time, customized water levels, a monitored workout on the underwater treadmill at a custom pace, drying off time, icing any problem areas and stretching!
