The benefits of canine hydrotherapy extend to the entire canine body. In hydrotherapy workouts, all of the muscle groups that are used in everyday movement are exercised without the stress of moving on hard surfaces. Almost 90% of your dog’s weight is supported by water buoyancy! Your dog will be able to swim with less discomfort, and he’ll get a good workout from the resistance of the water.
Unlike humans, who have been using water treatment in their health and fitness regimens since the time of the Roman Empire, dogs have just recently begun using it, thanks to the horse racing industry.
