Thank you for considering us for the referral of your patient. We are members of both the Canine Hydrotherapy Association and our hydrotherapists are also on the National Association of Registered Canine Hydrotherapists; so you can be confident that we have the highest standards of qualifications, experience and up hold professional quality standards in treating patients and clients.
We need veterinary approval via a referral before we can swim dogs. This is to ensure that we know the dog has no medical issues which would affect us swimming them safely. Clients may contact us directly to discuss hydrotherapy for their dog, in each case we will let them know that their dog cannot swim until we have a vet referral.
This applies to 'fun and fitness’ and behaviour or weight loss swims too.
Providing us with a clinical history will help us to understand the patient and it’s owner and helps us to plan treatment which is individually tailored to meet their needs.
We will always refer back to you if we have any additional concerns and provide feedback on progress as required.
