Canine Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy at Woofs n Scruffs.
Most Dogs love water....we have the perfect solution at Woof n Scruffs!

Here at Woofs n Scruffs we offer Hydrotherapy for Fun but also as a treatment for many medical conditions. Hydrotherapy covers both dog swimming in our pools and using our water treadmill. Hydrotherapy is the ultimate non weight bearing exercise. It uses almost every muscle in the body whilst placing no undue pressure on the joints.
