Exercising in the underwater treadmill has unique features which are very beneficial in maintaining your pet’s health.
As compared with regular exercise, the water provides cohesion and surface tension which strengthens muscles, improves endurance and cardiovascular and respiratory fitness.
The thermal effects of exercising in warm water help to increase joint flexibility and circulation to muscles while decreasing joint pain.
Our Ferno underwater treadmill has some added features that will enhance your pet’s exercise sessions. We’ve equipped our treadmill with 6 resistance water jets and an adjustable incline which will give your pet the ultimate workout.
Most dogs adjust very well to the underwater treadmill and learn to enjoy it. The side panels are clear allowing for constant observation of the patient. Treats or toys can be given over the side to encourage the patient.
An annual exam by a CARE veterinarian is required to be eligible for these sessions.
