Barney's Hydro Report

2022-02-21

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

Barney was very excited to be going on an adventure today, he jumped straight into the van and waited patiently for his turn.

A word from Noah's

Barney was confident in the water but panicked a little while swimming. To help him perform well there was a hydrotherapist on each side. This helped him swim straight and settle in the water. They also began to introduce toys while swimming, this helped guide Barney where to go. We would recommend he attend hydrotherapy again to ensure he has a good understanding of how to swim and begin relaxing within the pool.
