Canine Treadmills for the dog

Underwater canine treadmills for dogs and canine hydrotherapy produce excellent results and for several reasons:

  • Dogs exercise in warm water which improves circulation and reduces pain.

  • Depth of water can be varied so that the dog is supported regardless of size, thus reducing joint pain from impact.

  • The belt speed of canine treadmills can be varied from 0 to 5mph thus dogs with extreme conditions can be safely treated under carefully controlled parameters.

  • Belt speed changes are extremely smooth.

  • Hydrostatic pressure and a temperature of 28C have a natural beneficial effect on swollen joints.

The advanced software programs developed by DWS offer canine hydrotherapy practitioners an almost limitless range of treatments to enable even the most compromised dog to improve or fully recover. Detailed records of all treatments are automatically produced in PDF files for use by referring vets.
Our canine treadmills are packed with features that other manufacturers do not offer or for which they charge extra. All metalwork is Stainless Steel grade 316, as used in the North Sea oil fields, so even after 20 years use there will be no corrosion at all.
