Underwater Treadmill

Underwater Treadmill Therapy for Pets

This therapy can be very beneficial to many different patients such as pets who are reluctant to bear weight whether it is due to orthopedic injuries, arthritis, or neurological conditions. The buoyancy of the water helps to take the stress off of their joints and allows them to use their legs more easily.
Pets who need to lose weight can also benefit from using the underwater treadmill as it allows them to exercise without having to support their weight on their limbs. 

Athletic patients can also benefit from its use. Dogs used in hunting, field trials, agility, and other sporting events can use the underwater treadmill to help increase strength, endurance, and overall fitness level.

Doc had a great first day in the underwater treadmill! He took to the water like a champ! You go Doc! #tcvc
