Do you get in the pool with my dog?
Yes, we deem it beneficial and necessary to accompany every dog in the pool.
Can I stay with my dog?
We find that dogs can be happier and calmer when their owners are involved or even participating in the session, but this is not mandatory. In any event we recommend that you wear a waterproof jacket if you want to stay by the pool as it can get a bit wet.
Do I need veterinary permission before I bring my dog?
Will my insurance pay for the treatment?
As our trained staff are members of the National Association of Registered Canine Hydrotherapists (NARCH), insurance companies are happy to pay for treatment provided the dog was referred by your vet. The level of cover depends on the individual policy so we advise you to speak to your insurer before treatment commences. You pay for treatment to Bristol Canine Hydrotherapy Centre and claim the costs back from your insurance company.
Can my dog receive treatment even if my vet has not suggested it?
Is hydrotherapy only for dogs with health problems?
