A canine hydro treadmill is similar to a regular treadmill but it is filled with warm water to the desired level, usually the point of the shoulder. Once the water is filled, the hydro treadmill is started and the dog walks at a regulated pace. There are many benefits received from the use of a canine Hydro treadmill. Buoyancy from the water takes pressure off the joints and helps ease pain. Exercising in water increases resistance, helps strengthen muscles, tighten tendons and increase circulation. There is also an increased range of motion in joints from walking in water.
*A veterinarian release is needed for hydro treadmill sessions.

Cold laser therapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. Often called low-level laser therapy, cold laser therapy by any name, is still a relatively new concept that is being used more recently to help dogs with arthritis, tendon or soft tissue injuries and to promote wound healing. Laser therapy can improve acute and chronic injuries, sprains and strains, arthritis, swelling due to back disc problems, and muscular-skeletal abnormalities. It also helps to regenerate nerve tissue after surgery. Lasers are nothing more than a beam of light that travels at a certain frequency that allows the laser to generate heat and penetrate tissue.
Dogs find laser therapy relaxing and tend to enjoy the treatment. In a typical treatment session, the laser wand is applied to the area to be treated. After laser therapy, dog owners might see their dog go upstairs more often, play with a ball he's not picked up in months or go back to getting on the couch for his nightly snuggle with family members. And, when dogs have better mobility, medications can often be reduced.
Laser therapy won't cause your dog any unwanted side effects. The laser used for this type of treatment will not burn your dog's skin. Laser therapy improves the quality of a dog's life as well as the life of its owner, because if your dog is happy, you are happy.
