We are very proud of our lovely animal hydro therapy centre. It is situated in the pretty area of Drumblade which is just south of Johannesburg and Alberton in the Klipriver and Blue Saddle Ranch vicinity.
The central focus of the hydro is the optimally heated circular pool (9m diameter by 3m deep) which is used for swimming horses and dogs. There is also a heated indoor pool (4m x 3m x 1.3m) for more controlled rehabilitation swimming for dogs. All dogs are fitted with canine safety jackets to keep them safe during their swim.
We also have Photizo light therapy equipment, a Bemer 3000 Vet (electro magnetic therapy) and qualified animal masseurs. Deep tissue massage is used to stimulate nerve and muscle tissue and is beneficial when the animal is recovering from surgery and requires gentle stretching of muscles and ligaments.
