AugustaK9Trails Bringing hydrotherapy, rehabilitation, fitness programs, and trail adventures to your canines in Augusta County and surrounding areas.

What is hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy for canines is a form of therapeutic exercise carried out in warm water. We offer TWO hydrotherapy pools that will allow the buoyancy and resistance to improve physiological function. The effects of water allow re-mobilization of joints which may not be possible when weight bearing out of water. This form of therapy is excellent for dogs that have arthritic pain, weakness, or neurological disabilities or dogs that just love water and/or need a challenge in muscle strengthening and weight loss. Hydrotherapy can also increase cardiovascular training, reduce edema, swelling and discomfort.

What Clients Say

testimonials

Amanda provided superb, expert care for my 13 year old pointer, Sierra, who was suffering from complex medical issues. She was gentle, kind and the results were excellent.

Diane H.

In a few short months, this has become my absolute favorite place to bring my pup… The results are everything you could hope for, but more than that; these ladies put so much time, effort, and heart into this business and show each dog so much care and love as if they are their own.

Emily D.

As a veterinarian and helicopter mom… I sing the praise of Rachel as she is kind, caring and patient with both Mahina and myself. In just a handful of sessions Mahina’s mobility is improving! These people are wonderful and your pet will see results!
