What is Hydrotherapy For Dogs

Canine hydrotherapy is a form of hydrotherapy directed at the treatment of chronic conditions, post-operative recovery, and pre-operative or general fitness in dogs.

A number of conditions in dogs may be aggravated by or may show slow or no improvement as a result of weight bearing exercise. Among these are hip dysplasia and elbow osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) or shoulder osteochondritis dissecans, conditions most common in medium to large purebred dogs, such as German Shepherds, Labrador Retrievers or Golden Retrievers; chronic degenerative radiculomyelopathy (CDRM), a degenerative disease of the spinal cord which causes hind limb problems in German Shepherds; and luxating patella which is seen predominantly in small and toy breeds.

Injuries to the cruciate ligament or other ligaments may make post-operative weight-bearing exercise in dogs problematic. Obese dogs, while requiring exercise, may aggravate existing conditions or injure themselves due to the weight exerted on their joints if walked normally.

Canine Hydrotherapy | Common Conditions in Singapore Pets

most common condition hip dysplasia

Hip Dysplasia IN BIG BREED DOGS

Canine hip dysplasia is a chronic condition in which the head of the femur bone doesn’t fit correctly into the hip socket.

This is a very common condition amongst big breed dogs which are badly breed from irresponsible Singapore pet shops.

Luxating Patella (Loose Knee)

A luxating patella occurs when the knee cap moves out of its natural position. The patella (knee cap) lies in a cartilaginous groove at the end of the femur at the stifle, which in some cases, can eventually rupture their cranial cruciate ligament. This is a common condition amongst active terriers.
most common condition IVDD

Intervertebral Disk Disease (IVDD)

IVDD is a condition seen in dogs. Intervertebral discs are cushioning pads of fibrocartilage that sit between most of the vertebra of the spinal column.  Degeneration of intervertebral discs, will eventually results in spondylosis. With the increasing number of senior dogs, this is one of the most common disease.
most common condition degenerative myelopathy

Degenerative Myelopathy – DM

Canine degenerative myelopathy (DM) is an uncommon, progressive degenerative disease that causes hind limb weakness and paralysis and eventually affects the front limbs, as well. The symptoms of DM start gradually, usually in adult dogs over 5 years of age.
