Therapeutic Swimming for Dogs in Park City- Canine Rehabilitation – Dog Water Therapy


“As a Rehab and Sports Medicine specialty veterinarian, I can’t say enough good things about The Dog Dive and Angela. We have sent several of our sports medicine and injury rehabilitation patients needing everything from gentle conditioning to major injury therapy to Angela, and EVERY SINGLE dog has improved faster than would be expected with either standard or underwater treadmill rehab therapy. The dogs come back happy, as do their human chauffeurs. My work in healing (standard rehab, chiropractic, acupuncture, etc.) often progresses significantly faster and better when my patients are also working with Angela at The Dog Dive. We consider her an integral part of the rehab team! We love you over there, Angela!!!!”

The Dog Dive has solidified strong cooperative relationships with Park City’s most well respected clinics. We pride ourselves on strong communication between our staff & your veterinarian, to ensure your best friend reaches all of his/ her health improvement goals.

According to Dr. Arleigh Reynolds, a renowned Veterinary Surgeon and Canine Physiologist, one minute of swim for our dogs equals 4 minutes of walking on land. This means that a 30 minute swim session equates to a 2 hour walk! Because swim is an impact free & high resistance exercise, we are able to accomplish much more in a much shorter period of time, with virtually no concussive stress placed on the body. The warmth of the water adds intensity to your dogs workout, and also provides pain & tension relief for our recovering pets.

 

Hydrotherapy is the most ideal and beneficial modality available to our pets for recuperation, exercise and conditioning alike.

All of our sessions are private and customized to meet the specific needs of your dog. All of our services are rooted in wellness; our goal is to enhance quality of life & longevity by achieving and maintaining optimal health, happiness & overall well –being.


Why warm water?

The normal internal body temperature of a canine averages 101 degrees. Pool temperature is maintained at 87-90 degrees. This heat allows for optimal softening of muscle and connective tissue, and increases circulation. These are two key components to a successful recovery, and unencumbered movement. Water provides unique benefits that no other exercise can: zero impact and high resistance. Impact free exercise is truly the greatest benefit of water therapy. Joints are not stressed, weight is not bared; the body is buoyant and free. Strength, flexibility, mobility, muscle tone and endurance increase, while pain, adhesions, tension, and inflammation are reduced.

Muscle Weakness/Atrophy Muscle Tension/Stiffness
