What is Hydrotherapy
Hydrotherapy provides a non weight bearing form of exercise in a specially designed heated swimming pool, providing excellent therapy for dogs in need of careful rehabilitation after injury or those suffering with general orthopaedic conditions. Our hydrotherapy pool can also be used for fun and fitness swims too.

Terms & Conditions
Richmond Canine Hydrotherapy Centre is situated in Warsash, which is based between Portsmouth and Southampton.

We offer unique benefits to dogs in need of careful rehabilitation after injury or are suffering with general orthopaedic conditions.

Our pool is sunken, so entry is via a gradual sloping ramp. The warm water kept between an optimum 27-30°C which relaxes the muscles and helps with the expansion of the surface blood vessels.  This combined with non weight bearing exercise reduces pressure on painful joints and muscles.

Using the Richmond Canine
Hydrotherapy Centre pool improves
cardiovascular circulation, stamina,
and joint mobility.
