Baloo's Hydro Report

2022-05-09

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

Baloo wasted no time jumping into the pool today! He was straight in and doing laps. As he was so excited he was splashing quiet abit to begin with however this did stop after the first few laps as he’d calmed down. Baloo was jumping off the step with little to no encouragement and of course was always happy to receive a treato at the end of each lap. He was doing circles and the hydrotherapist even got a toy out for him to fetch, however he did prefer swimming for the treatos. Once settled his swimming style was alot better! Mr Baloo slept the whole way home and he was so tired after a big day swimming

A word from Noah's

The hydrotherapist commented on how Baloo was very confident in the water, she said he was just a little uncoordinated at times while swimming.
