It’s the worst feeling in the world when your dog has experienced a bad slip or fall. K9 Aquatic Center provides help for injury of muscles or joints using hydrotherapy (very old Greek word meaning use of exercises in a pool as part of treatment for condition such as arthritis) to improve recovery time, reduce pain, and help improve body condition for your pet.
Hydrotherapy provides many benefits for your dog as the resistance of water helps them work harder, but at the same time it avoids the impact of exercising on land. Water therapy can help build up supporting muscles prior to surgeries where walking or running would be unsuitable. Other benefits include improved joint movement and circulation.
Dog ailments we assist with include:
- Hip and elbow dysplasia
- Cruciate ligament tears (ACL/TPLO)
- Hip surgeries (TPO, FHO, Hip replacement)
- Muscle degeneration
- Pre/post surgical conditioning
We have 5 pools with 1 large pool and 4 smaller pools. All the pools are 4 feet deep.
We are located in Potomac, MD and also help dog owners from Virginia and Washington, D.C. If you’re interested in our facilities for hydrotherapy, please check out our get started page today! You can also call us at (240) 683-1100 if you have any questions.
We are very passionate about what we do and hope we can help your dog with their recovery!
