Aqua Paws is Dunedin’s first canine hydrotherapy clinic which provides treatment for dogs in an underwater treadmill. Rehabilitation for animals is a growing industry, with demand increasing as owners seek to find alternative treatments for their pets.Hydrotherapy is also important for weight loss, as well as fitness/strength in working and sporting dogs.
Aqua Paws was founded by Krystle Kelly a Rehabilitation certified veterinary nurse with more than 10 years experience in the veterinary industry and Louise Marsh an agility competitor with many experiences rehabbing her own dogs.
Both Louise and Krystle are qualified canine hydrotherapists.
