Arlo's Hydro Report

2021-12-08

Splish, splash! What a great day for a swim in the warm hydro Pool! It was our PLEASURE to take your dog for a lesson of swimming with the Noahs Crossing Vet team.

Hydrotherapy is not just fun it comes with numerous benefits such as low impact exercise for muscles and joint, helps build on the dogs confidence and fitness, it is a great exposure experience and helps to build on your dogs swimming style and confidence with water.

After their swim you may find they will either be full of energy with a second boost of adrenaline or they will be out like a light snoozing off today's accomplishments. Either way, they deserve it!

Please find below some quick notes given by the qualified Hydro-therapist and a note from our team how the dog was during their time with us.

A word from us

What an amazing boy Arlo is! He improved his swimming so much in just one session. He needed his paws held a little when it came to getting in the water but nothing some sweet talking, cuddles and treatos couldnt fix! Well done Arlo, so proud!

A word from Noah's

Arlo was a little shy when it came to the water, so we worked a lot on conditioning and getting him use to being in and around the water. We slowly lead him in the pool- using LOTS of treats and spent some time on the pod enjoying some snacks and a massage. As the session went on we brought him in further and began introducing some swimming and laps. He struggled to find his feet and legs in the water and we were all about the splashes, but once relaxed we started to swim beautifully. We would definitely love to see him come back and help boost that confidence being in and around the water.
