At the moment I am limiting hydrotherapy sessions to dogs who have experienced a decline in comfort and health due to not swimming. If your dog is coping well, please keep them at home with you. If you see a change in your dog's health or comfort, and feel swimming would benefit them, do get in touch and we can arrange a session.
I am taking on new patients, but only where the dog's vet feels they require hydrotherapy without delay. A vet referral form can be downloaded from this website.
I am not currently seeing dogs for fun and fitness swims or swimming lessons. If your dog is happy and healthy, please keep them at home for the time being.
If anyone in your household has symptoms of COVID-19, please do not bring your pet for hydrotherapy until all symptoms have passed, and you have been given the all clear to come out of self isolation.
