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 a hydrotherapy pool 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 has been awesome with Loki. When our pup broke her leg, Heather and I knew it would be a long road. What we didn’t know is that when the splint was removed, Loki wouldn’t know how to use her back leg anymore. With Amanda’s help Loki is back to normal. We are so happy with how she took care of Loki

Amanda, you are wonderful! It was a joy to watch you work with my dog, Macy, in the swimming pool. You put her at ease, which helped her realize she was actually having fun!

Your love of dogs and the way you relate to them is excellent. You made both Max and me feel comfortable. I think he liked swimming!
