    Hi all,

    our dog goes to hydrotherapy but the lady running it has tested positive for covid19.

    What can we do to help keep him going whilst hes not going?

    Kind regards Mark

    Gentle but regular exercise on flat soft surfaces on lead. The idea is to keep the muscles strong to support the joints but you dont want to be pushing the exercise until the muscles tire as all the strain then goes onto the joints.

    If you look around, there may be another hydro pool within reach.

    Thanks for your replies. I had thought about going to another hydrotherapy provider and i have been told that the current provider is in hospital with meningitis so i think we will go elsewhere until she returns
