Background on the Hydro
Early in 2007 Christine Shackleford decided that she would like to provide a holistic hydrotherapy treatment centre for animals specifically with joint and muscular problems. Her own dogs had joint problems (hip dysplasia, cruciate ligament tearing etc). A lot of research was done on optimal water temperatures, the size and depth of the pools, water sanitisation, massage therapy, light therapy etc.
A year later the hydro is an established therapy centre with dedicated staff whose objective is to provide a stress free environment for post-operative rehabilitation, fitness and endurance training and long term pain control.
