Hera's Hydro Report

2022-04-11

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

Miss Hera was excited to go on her hydro adventure today. While waiting she was a little silly and was a little reactive towards the dogs walking past. However, this improved as the day progressed. Today the staff spend some time conditioning her for the pool by walking around the outside. As she was showing good confidence the trainers began to encourage her to walk in. She was very curious about the water and started to follow treats, taking a few steps into the pool. After some time she was walking into the pool where all four paws were wet. This is great progress for Hera and her confidence in the pool.

A word from Noah's

While swimming Hera was relaxed and settled but initially was a little uneasy in the pool. As the season progressed she began to enjoy herself more and swim well.
