Underwater Treadmill Sessions and Packages

Buoyancy when in water decreases stress on joints while increasing the resistance of limb movement, so pets recovering from injuries or surgery often can walk on underwater treadmills before they are able to take steps on land.

Underwater treadmill sessions can improve pets’ range of motion, circulation, flexibility, proper limb placement, strength, mobility and balance.

Underwater treadmill treatments can even help pets lose weight and improve total body condition such as when preparing for sporting competitions.
