Welcome to York Canine Hydro, based in York, North Yorkshire - we are a specialist Canine Hydrotherapy and Rehabilitation centre, where we believe the health, both mental and physical, of our canine companions, is of the utmost importance.
We are passionate about the benefits of a structured, caring and professionally delivered treatment programme and so we work closely with Vets, Orthopaedic Surgeons, Owners and Dogs to deliver a service that is second to none.
Qualified, Experienced and Trained Professionals
The centre is run by qualified veterinary nurses, Helen, Alison and Anna who have trained in the Benefits and Techniques of Canine Hydrotherapy at the Whitehouse Training Centre in Lincoln.
In addition, Alison, Anna and Helen hold a Certificate in Hydrotherapy for Small Animals and has also trained in the following areas;
- Canine Anatomy, Physiology and the MusculoSkeletal System
- Spinal Conditions
- Clinical Conditions associated with Hydrotherapy
- Management of Complicating Medical Conditions
- Functional Rehabilitation
- Managing Pain
- Weight Management
- Animal First Aid
- Pool Water Management
Alongside our skilled and experienced Hydrotherapists, we also work with an ACPAT qualified and experienced Physiotherapist - Hannah Michael of Theakston Physiotherapy Services, who runs clinics from our centre to provide additional assistance should it be required, to ensure the total well being of your treasured companion.
In order to ensure a complete and professional service, we require all our dogs to have a Consent Form from their Veterinary Surgeon or Orthopaedic Surgeon, who we then continue to liaise with and report back to throughout the duration of the treatment, thus ensuring a complete medical history is available, before, during and after treatment.
The Hydro has emergency veterinary cover from The Minster Veterinary Practice, located less than 3 miles away. More details of The Minster Veterinary Practice can be found on their website http://www.minstervets.co.uk
