Like swimming? So does your pup!
Studies have shown that due to increased resistance to movement, a five-minute swim is equivalent to that of a five-mile run. The buoyancy of water helps support and lessen the stress on your dog’s joints. It also provides a safe environment for them to exercise in. Canine hydrotherapy been increasingly recognised as a healthy and safe form of exercise and relaxation for your dogs. And with good reason too! Hydrotherapy is beneficial for dogs to speed up recovery after an operation, slow down degenerative conditions or simply as part of a general fitness routine for your dogs.

Founded in 2000, Pet Stop is a one-stop shop for grooming, canine hydrotherapy and pet boarding/lodging. They have the strictest hygiene rules, which ensures that your furkids are in the cleanest and safest environment possible for their hydrotherapy sessions. Pet Stop especially recommends the hydrotherapy sessions for injured dogs as this speeds up their recovery without overexerting their physical bodies. The water relaxes and rejuvenates all the systems in your dog’s body on a physical level (i.e. nervous system, respiratory system, skeletal system and circulatory system).
Owners are not allowed into the pools at Pet Stop for hygiene reasons but trained therapists will be there to ensure proper swimming techniques are used so that your dogs don’t overexert themselves. Only two dogs are allowed per timeslot, so remember to call ahead to make an appointment!
Price: $15 to $25 per session depending on size of dog. Membership prices and packages also available.

Ra Healing Centre
As a full fledged rehabilitation centre with alternative support therapies for animals, Ra Healing Centre uses non-invasive and state-of-the-art facilities to care for your pets. Using Epsom salts in their hydrotherapy pools instead of chlorine, the salts are easily absorbed into your dog’s skin, increasing their magnesium levels that are vital to the proper functions of their heart, muscles and nervous systems. This transdermal absorption hydrotherapy far exceeds the effects and benefits of regular hydrotherapy for the wellbeing of your dog. Ra Healing Centre offers hydrotherapy using whirlpools, underwater treadmills and dog pools in a controlled environment that allows your dog to receive the full benefits from the session.
At Ra Healing Centre, the therapists are 100% dedicated to provide only the best treatments for your dogs because they deserve the best.
Price: Starting from $60 per session (Package prices available)
