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 (photobiomodulation)
Cold Laser treatment is a noninvasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission Radiation and utilizes different wavelengths of low level light to stimulate the animal's tissues. It is called "cold" because unlike other medical lasers, this form does not give off heat or cut into tissue.
How does it work? The laser stimulates the animal's cells causing the mitochondria to produce more ATP (energy utilized by the cells) which allows for quicker cellular healing and a reduction in inflammation. 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 heal tendon or soft tissue injuries, promotes wound healing and regenerates nerve tissue after surgery.
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.
• Do not use on dogs with cancer
• Never shine laser in eyes (avoid using on the face)
• Always follow instructions for proper use on the laser you are using.

Equine Massage, Cold Laser & Kinesiology Taping
What is kinesiology tape? Kinesiology tape is a stretchy athletic tape that sticks directly to the skin on people and the hair on animals which causes a decompression effect of the skin resulting in increased blood flow, pain reduction and more.
Does kinesiology tape replace other forms of body work? No, kinesiology tape works best when used in conjunction with other forms of body work such as massage and/or chiropractic.
Does the horse have to be shaved or can you tape over their hair? You can tape directly over the horse's coat. If the horse has a very long coat, some clipping may be necessary, but the tape normally does well on short- medium length hair.
How does the tape work if it's on the animal's hair rather than their skin? The tape lifts the hair, which lifts the skin, creating the same decompression effect seen in people wearing kinesiology tape.
Can a horse be ridden while wearing the tape? Yes, all the tape applications besides the meridian tapings can be worn during exercise.
Can a horse compete with the tape on? Yes and No. There are some competitions that will allow it and others will not. Owner should check ahead of time before the competition.
Is the tape waterproof? Yes. It can be worn during a bath or while swimming.
