For some dogs, simply floating or swimming gently in water can relieve pain and inflammation. While for others, more vigorous exercise is used to develop muscle strength and tone. To ensure safety, your dog will be fitted with a buoyancy aid and one of our own collars.

Your dog will be sharing the pool with an experienced hydrotherapist
Underwater Treadmill

water - treadmill

The majority of patients using this specialist equipment are dogs with osteoarthritis in multiple joints, those recovering from orthopaedic surgery, or managing a neurologic disease.

Each patient is prepared just the same as if we were performing hydrotherapy in the pool: with an appropriate jacket. We gently lead the patient into the see-through underwater treadmill and stay with your dog in the chamber to give maximum reassurance: especially on the first session.


Initially, your dog will need to be carefully assessed in order to receive any of our treatments. Assessment may be continuous simply to monitor the progress of your dog throughout the rehabilitation period.
Our Rehabilitation suite offers space and comfort, enabling your dog to relax whilst being coached in remedial and rehabilitative exercises.
During all sessions your dog will be in the safe hands of a registered Physiotherapist.

Stance Analyser

The Stance Analyser is a vital part of our evaluation process while also allowing you to see your dogs progress over time. We can detect lameness earlier with this integral part of every single wellness exam. Or track treatment progress with an objective measure of your patient's weight bearing.

Conditions treated here at Pawseidon

Hip Dysplasia

Low-impact and high-resistance exercises such as swimming are really well suited to dogs with joint conditions like dysplasia. This is because they help build up the larger buttock muscles, which help support the ball and socket hip joint. Likewise, low-impact exercise is easier on the elbow joints.

Cranial Cruciate Injuries

Hydrotherapy may prevent dogs diagnosed with partial tears from completely rupturing, as water exercise aids in muscle development.

Weight Management

Swimming is proven to help some dogs lose excess weight and strengthen muscles. It’s a non-weight bearing exercise, which is especially good for dogs with joint problems or injuries, and because there is increased resistance from the water, it can burn more calories in a shorter amount of time than a walk in the park


The buoyancy of the water makes walking on the treadmill or swimming across the pool a zero-impact exercise, which means the dog can stretch out stiff muscles without the accompanying pain associated with bearing weight on the affected limbs.

Strength and Conditioning

The buoyancy and reduced dead weight that a pool provides enables your dog to get a low-impact, but effective workout; helping to strengthen muscle tone, improve mobility, and increase fitness levels. We will work with you to develop an exercise plan that both you and your dog can accomplish.

Elbow Dysplasia

Swimming. In the water, your dog floats which alleviates the weight on your canine’s elbows. Your dog can freely move and feel less discomfort. Swimming in a pool is a wonderful activity for any canine suffering from elbow dysplasia.

Intervertebral Disc Disease

Following spinal surgery, it is vital that exercise is carefully controlled and that the dog’s movements are restricted and supported. Swimming is an excellent way to improve circulation and encourage mobility within these restrictions, without putting any undue pressure on the spine and joints.

Fitness Swim

Our pool is available for fitness swims, not just hydrotherapy and rehab.

If you want your dog to enjoy a fun, safe swim in our nice heated pool then just give us a call on 01202 929518 and we will sort out the rest.

Degenerative Myelopathy

Choosing water therapy for your dog’s treatment with DM is a crucial part of their rehabilitation and therapy. The buoyancy of the water allows effective exercise for the weakened areas of the body to build strength, muscle, and confidence in your dog.

Limb Amputation

“Swimming makes them whole. They can move in the water like they cannot on land. With swimming being non-weight bearing, it helps condition muscles without any impact. Some paralyzed dogs can actually move their limbs when they get in the water

Water phobia

The good news is, that most dogs can overcome their fear of water and many even get to the point where they like being in the water.

Senior Dogs

Swimming is a fantastic activity for dogs of all ages, but is particularly good for older dogs because it is low-impact and easy on their weakening joints and muscles. Swimming also builds strength, is good for their overall conditioning, and is naturally relaxing and comforting to most dogs.
