Underwater treadmill

Print E-mail
Over the last ten years use of underwater treadmill rehabilitation has gained popularity within Australia. Dr. Chris Preston from Pet Emergency & Specialist Centre was the first vet to have a physiotherapist and treadmill alongside his surgical practice in 2004. The treadmill allows the operator to adjust water depth and thus control of the degree of flotation. We can also adjust the speed of the treadmill and increase the energy expenditure to build endurance and muscle mass. Our treadmill is the most popular around the world and has swim jets to further increase resistance. We have a dedicated treadmill room where you can be with your dog during the treatment sessions to provide verbal encouragement and stay involved in the recovery process.
