Initial Assessment Appointment (Approximate duration: 1 hour)
The first time that you and your pet come to the Tudor Hydrotherapy Centre will be for an initial assessment appointment with one of our highly trained and qualified hydrotherapists. This is the chance for us to talk to you about your pet, why you have come to see us, their diet, their normal exercise levels and activities and about what you hope to achieve from the treatment. The therapist will carry out a gait analysis (to see how your pet is moving) and a hands-on musculoskeletal assessment (to assess muscle bulk and tone as well as joint range of motion) before discussing a proposed treatment plan. The most important person in your pet’s rehabilitation is you, which is why we spend time putting together a treatment plan that suits both you and your pet. Once we are familiar with your dogs history we will do an introductory session in the treadmill to get them used to the noises, sights and smells of Hydrotherapy.
Follow up Appointment (Approximate duration: 40 minutes)
In most cases, your pet will require a number of follow up appointments. At each appointment your dog will first be showered in order to warm up their muscles and prepare them for treatment in the water treadmill. They will then be treated in the water treadmill and your pet will be accompanied by a therapist at all times when they are in the treadmill (unless it is behaviourally inappropriate for any particular pet). After each session your pet will be showered and thoroughly towel dried. We always recommend you bring a fleece blanket, towel or robe to wrap your pet in for the journey home, especially in cold weather.
Initial Appointment : £50.00
Follow-up Appointment : £40.00
We also work closely with Yorkshire Vet Physio, Sarah Williams and Karen Goodall who provide animal physiotherapy services to both small and large animals, providing in clinic, home and yard visits. The cost of both hydrotherapy and physiotherapy is generally covered by most popular pet insurance companies. We always suggest you contact your insurers to check whether your pet is covered and if so, if there is any limit on either the number of sessions covered or a financial limit.
