Why Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy uses the properties of water to provide therapeutic treatment and pain relief. Hydrotherapy has been used in humans since ancient times and has been used for race horses and in the greyhound industry for many years. It is now widely regarded and used for dogs in general.
