Description: Aquatic Therapy in Canine Rehabilitation will help one get their feet wet in the world of hydrotherapy. Many people look at aquatic therapy as a way to condition animals by using the resistance of the water and its buoyancy. There are several specific important scientific considerations when one is considering Aquatic Therapy. Are pools and under water treadmills equivalent? Is being on a treadmill like dry land with resistance? Are there times when an underwater treadmill is simply the wrong choice? Can water therapy help make new neural connections? Can we make aquatic therapy profitable? Bring a bathing suit or wet suit and towel and plan to get wet. There is a shower on the premises.
Please note: Students who do not
