Thank you for considering us for the referral of a canine patient. As we are a member of the Canine Hydrotherapy Association, you can be confident that we have the highest standards of qualifications and experience.
We will only ever treat dogs who have had veterinary approval. Clients may contact us directly to discuss hydrotherapy for their dog, in each case we will let them know that their Vet will be contacted for background information and to obtain consent for hydrotherapy treatment. This is the case for ‘fun’ and ‘fitness’ swims too.
Providing us with a relevant clinical history will help us to understand the case and it’s requirements fully, ensuring that any treatment plan is clinically reasoned based on the case history of the patient. We will always refer back to you if we have any additional concerns and provide feedback on progress as required.
You can download our consent form below and email this across to us, or fill in online here.
