What is hydrotherapy & why does my pet need to do it?

Hydrotherapy (also known as aquatic therapy) is a physical therapy in water where the water offers resistance and support to the body without putting too much pressure on joints, bones and organs. It is one of the simplest and most effective type of natural therapies perfect for either dogs or cats (yes, cats can swim too!). It is directed at the treatment of chronic conditions, recovering from injuries, pets who suffer from degenerative joint disease and fractures, the amputation of a limb, neurological disorders, pets who have been paralyzed, hip-dysplasia, post-operative recovery, and pre-operative or general fitness. It is especially beneficial for pets who suffer from arthritis due to old age for the warm water helps reduce joint swelling plus old pets move less but they still need exercise!
