How Hydrotherapy for Dogs Works and Why It’s Worth It

"Hydrotherapy" means “water healing" in Greek, and your fur kids can benefit in the same way humans do. Hydrotherapy uses the properties of water — buoyancy, viscosity, resistance, and hydrostatic pressure — to enable a dog (or human) to move his or her joints. Water makes the body buoyant, so when submerged, the weight of the body is supported. This means the your fur kid is not fighting gravity. The buoyancy of water reduces stress on the joints and this creates a much safer environment for recovery after surgery.

Spirocerca Lupi

Spirocerca Lupi is a worm that completes its life cycle in dogs and causes severe, potentially life-threatening diseases. Your fur kid can pick up this worm through intermediary hosts - from eating beetles or small animals such as mice, rats, lizards, wild birds and, most notably, the common Hadeda. Dogs become infected through eating the intermediary host, or its faeces, or through picking up the worm eggs which remain on the lawn and in pastures.
