Pre-Surgical Conditioning & Post-Surgical Rehabilitation
Conditioning before orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation afterwards are great ways to help shorten recovery time and improve healing!
 
Swimming is a zero-impact exercise that eliminates the forces of gravity on the bones and joints. The warmth of the water increases blood circulation, increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients and flushing away waste products, leading to muscle relaxation and a reduction in pain and stiffness. This also reduces swelling and enhances healing.
 
Aquatic conditioning and rehabilitation can be beneficial for most orthopedic-related surgeries, including TPLO, cruciate ligament repairs, back & neck surgeries, femoral head and neck ostectomies (FHO), patella luxations, and elbow surgery/arthroscopy.
 
All surgical conditioning and rehabilitation must be referred by a veterinarian.

Weight Loss
Canine obesity is a serious problem which can lead to osteoarthritis, Insulin Resistance and Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, cranial cruciate ligament injury, kidney disease, many forms of cancer, and a decreased life expectancy (up to 2.5 years).
 
Aquatic therapy, partnered with a controlled diet and workout routine, is a wonderful way to combat this issue! By reducing stress on the joints, swimming strengths your dog's muscle tone and improves overall stamina.

Sports Conditioning
Competing in agility, search & rescue, tracking, hunting, fly ball, and canine freestyle (just to name a few) are great ways to keep your dog active, increase your bond, and have a healthy and happy pet.
 
These strenuous activities can, however, wreak havoc on your dog's body. Proper conditioning is essential to ensure your dog's safety and to allow him to compete for years to come.

Senior Swims
Gracie Senior Fitness Old Dog Canine
As our dogs age, they begin to develop osteoarthritis, having difficulty getting up and moving around. 
 
Swimming is an excellent way to help improve their mobility. The warmth and buoyancy of the water takes pressure off of sore joints, increases circulation and decreases pain in the joints and muscles.
