Dog Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is an effective and versatile method of exercise which helps treat dogs with a multitude of conditions as well as maintaining good health and well being.

Our centre’s hydrotherapy room was created after experiencing the benefits of hydrotherapy first hand with the teams own dogs, and have appreciated the positive effects it has had on their dogs everyday lives.

Holly is the founder and owner of Woof & Ready Ltd. Holly is a qualified City &Guilds Groomer and holds a Level 3 in canine hydrotherapy since 2015. Holly decided to bring hydrotherapy to Glossop and the surrounding areas due to her discovering her Yorkshire terrier had a degenerative spinal disease. Holly believes that every dog owner should have the ability to access similar results her Yorkshire terrier rehab via our hydrotherapy centre.

Our pool is a custom made 6 x 3m canine swimming pool with a depth of 1.2 meters. This makes it suitable for even the largest breed of dog. The pool provides a perfect environment for your dog to swim, with a water temperature between 29°-32 degrees. This helps increase blood flow and warms up the muscles of your dog whilst swimming. Our specially designed non-slip internal and external ramps give easy entry into the water. Our pool is also equipped with water jets to increase the intensity of your dog’s swim.

The centre added a state of the art Hydro Physio Underwater Treadmill. This means our clients are able to access rehabilitation hydrotherapy as early as 3 weeks post operation (Vet consent must be given). This secure environment means it is recommended for spinal, cruciate and luxating patella patients pre-op or post op, with the aim to gain muscle, mobility and reduce risk of further injury.

Our water is a bromine pool to reduce irritation and is tested at least 3 times a day to ensure optimum hygiene at all times. All dogs are washed down before and after each session.
