Animal Hydrotherapy

Animal hydrotherapy helps animals with ongoing health complaints or who are recovering from an injury. Conditions like arthritis can cause animals a great deal of pain and discomfort but animal hydrotherapy techniques and treatments can help mobility, reduce stress, and improve an animal’s overall wellbeing.

Small animal hydrotherapy can be used to treat a range of orthopaedic and neurological conditions and can help to strengthen muscles and aide recovery following surgery. These courses will give you all the skills and knowledge you need to safely treat animals using hydrotherapy techniques.
