Our friendly hydrotherapy rehabilitation centre, with two fully-qualified Canine Hydrotherapists, is based in Staplehurst, Kent.  We offer specialist hydrotherapy equipment within our two purpose-built log cabins, with heating or air conditioning for your complete comfort.  So that you get 100% attention and care for your dog, we pride ourselves on ensuring that your dog will not meet other dogs or clients whilst attending their hydrotherapy session.

Your dog will be treated by one of our highly qualified Canine Hydrotherapists, Graham Cooper or Alana Woods.  With over 10 years of hydrotherapy experience between them, they pride themselves on a high level of professionalism and care delivered to your dog during their individually tailored hydrotherapy session.  Julie Cooper is the third member of the team and your first point of contact to answer your questions and book your Initial Assessment date.

My dog was diagnosed with bi-lateral hip dysplasia as a puppy and following consultation with an orthopedic specialist we agreed to try hydrotherapy before considering a total hip replacement.  Almost immediately it was evident that after each session Roo was less stiff and much more comfortable.  His muscle measurements were taken and over time his muscles grew and the muscles in the weaker hip matched those in the stronger one.

 

The care and attention to detail taken by Graham and Alana is outstanding and they take every action necessary to ensure that Roo gets the most out of every treadmill step at every session.   I am convinced that their expertise and dedication has helped keep Roo fit and comfortable throughout the time he has been having hydrotherapy. After 6 years of hydro Roo has now had a total hip replacement but I have no doubt that this would have been necessary several years ago had it not been for regular hydro.   He has returned to hydrotherapy as part of his recovery and I know that this will help him to recover quickly.

Finzi, our German Shepherd developed mobility issues at just 6 years of age, affecting his hind limbs and occasionally one of the fore limbs.  Our vet suggested hydrotherapy might help, so we took Finzi to Splash Paws. A thorough Initial Assessment was carried out and a regular course of hydrotherapy in the Underwater Treadmill was undertaken.

 

Regrettably, there was no cure for the mobility issue, but the hydrotherapy provided by Splash Paws coupled with their specialist knowledge in mobility issues in dogs, helped enormously, giving Finzi a much improved quality of life.  We have no hesitation in recommending Splash Paws for their experience and knowledge, helping any dog with a mobility issue.

Scout started going to Splash Paws after she was diagnosed with Elbow Dysplasia. When she first arrived her limp was very pronounced and she was obviously in pain. To say she is now a different dog is an understatement. 

 

Graham and Alana were incredibly kind, patient and professional in their understanding of the treatment needed. They clearly take great pride in their work and monitored Scout closely throughout her sessions. Her joints and muscles are much improved and she is now strong, full of energy and most importantly a happy dog once again.

 

It’s been a real pleasure to take Scout to Splash Paws and both Scout and I will miss our visits.
