Fitter Critters offers canine swimming (aquatic therapy) in the comfort of our heated indoor canine fitness jet pool or our underwater treadmill. In general, swimming helps to reduce limb edema (swelling) and improves: range of motion, muscle stretch, balance, general fitness, stamina, lung capacity and cardiovascular function.


Aquatic therapy is an excellent form of exercise that allows muscles, tendons and ligaments to move in a weightless environment without placing stress on bones and joints.

Aquatic therapy is helpful with:
Hip dysplasia    

Preoperative conditioning
Arthritis    

Spinal problems
Most postsurgical procedures    

Fractures
Traumatic Accidents    

Elbow problems
Sport Injuries    

Neurological problems
Weight problems

Veterinarian approval is required prior to initiating aquatic programs.
