Canine Hydrotherapy and Physiotherapy – Stockport, Cheshire

Our purpose built facility provides the perfect environment for your dog to swim, whether as part of a post-trauma or rehabilitation programme, fitness and weight control or just for fun. Blossoms provide a heated indoor pool to provide a relaxing and therapeutic environment. Warm water acts to relax muscles by increasing skin temperature which reduces pain and muscle spasm. Hydrostatic Pressure property of water also works to alleviate swelling by encouraging bodily fluid movement away from the affected area.

Our ground level, walk in ramp has been specifically designed to allow for easy exit and entry. Particularly important for dogs with a nervous disposition or those with limited mobility.
