Underwater Treadmill Therapy

Is your beloved pet facing mobility challenges, such as stiffness, lameness, or difficulty climbing stairs and jumping into the car? Do you notice an unsteady gait, paw knuckling, or incontinence? Perhaps your pet vocalizes distress when touched or moved. Whether it's post-orthopedic surgery recovery, weight management, excessive energy, or a competitive edge you're seeking for your dog's performance, we have a solution for you.

At GCVS, we offer underwater treadmill therapy designed to strengthen muscles through water resistance, while ensuring low-impact exercise to protect joints. Aqua therapy has proven to be a game-changer for pets looking to regain a better quality of life, whether they are dealing with physical issues, recovering from surgery, addressing behavioral concerns, or focusing on weight management.

Our experienced veterinarian will craft a workout plan tailored to meet the unique health and fitness goals of your furry friend. The outcomes of this highly effective therapy extend beyond physical improvements, including enhanced muscle strength, cardiovascular functionality, and weight management.

Aqua therapy also has a remarkable impact on mental well-being. By redirecting and channeling excess energy through physical and mental stimulation, behavioral conditions can improve. Whether your pet is an athlete, a cherished companion, or simply in need of a helping hand, our aqua therapy program is designed to promote their overall health, happiness, and vitality.
