"My dog competes in a variety of competitions (agility, scent work, conformation, herding and much more). I had been looking for a way to help keep him in shape and a friend recommended finding hydrotherapy. We are fortunate that Murphy Animal Hospital has this and took advantage of the opportunity. My Border Collie goes 2x a week and this has really helped to increase his stamina while defining solid muscle. Elisha is the best to work with and Vinny adores her. She keeps the hydrotherapy tank sparkling clean and that’s a big win in my book.  Kudos to Murphy for offering this service. If your dog needs this type of service for injury recovery or stamina needs, I highly recommend contacting them. You will not be disappointed.  Absolutely a 5-star rating!!"

About Underwater Treadmill Therapy (Hydrotherapy):


Combining the benefits of swimming and walking with the use of an underwater treadmill, hydrotherapy takes the stress off your dog’s muscles and joints.  The warm water and hydrostatic pressure create easier, lower impact exercise, that is ideal for your pet’s healing process.

Combining Underwater Treadmill Therapy with Physical Rehab:

  • Exercise can be attempted earlier and safer than on land.
  • Challenges and improves balance.
  • Increases metabolism helping with weight loss, and the effects of immobility.
