CANINE
HYDROTHERAPY

I currently provide canine hydrotherapy services at Aquavet Hydrotherapy on Longwater Lane, Costessey two days a week.

 

Aquavet Hydrotherapy is equipped with a state-of-the-art hydrotherapy treadmill. Hydrotherapy is an amazing tool in helping animals recover from many conditions and manage chronic conditions, especially when it is used alongside physiotherapy treatment.
