To use therapies to provide companion animals with the optimal quality of life.  We offer hydrotherapy for dogs, holistic & rehab veterinarian services, canine massage, specialized grooming, energy worker & Reiki Master. 

 

Our focus is to improve the life of your canine family member.

Hydrotherapy for dogs can be used to help dogs recover from injuries or alleviate some of the infirmaries of advancing age. Hydrotherapy will help maintain and improve muscle mass, balance and range of motion. The water fully supports the weight of the dog allowing them to move more freely. The dogs feel more comfortable moving as  they don’t have to worry about over balancing or falling or putting weight on an injured limb.  Most dogs quickly develop a love for swimming and look forward to their hydrotherapy sessions and can’t wait to get back in the pool.

We are a warm water salt water based canine therapy pool, we have a chlorine generator that adds a little bit of chlorine to assist in the cleaning of the water. Our pool is the only one in British Columbia that is salt water based. We also have a diatomatious earth filtration system to help collect any unwanted items in the pool such as dander, oils and hair by bringing down the particulate level so fine that we can ensure that we have clean safe water and our water is test very often at a professional testing facility for quality control measures.

We can develop a program to help your dog regain strength, balance, range of movement and muscle mass and help alleviate pain and tension based stiffness, pre and post surgical, conservative management, conditioning animal athletes, weight management, learn to swim and just for fun swims.

What clients say About K9Rehab

What our clients have to say about our home care and therapeutic services for dogs

  • Spencer - springer spaniel

    K9 Rehab stepped in to help us care for “Spencer” our Springer Spaniel when he was a puppy. Spencer was a rambunctious puppy who needed the one on one home care attention verses having him in a kennel environment. We were really happy with the caring and loving attention Spencer received from his walking buddy, he always came back tired and happy which was a huge help to us. We totally recommend K9 Rehab and tell all our friends how trustworthy and professional they are. Spencer says, “Thank you for the adventure hikes and home visits”

  • K9 amputee Tonka

    Our dog Tonka is a forelimb amputee tripod border collie who lost his leg due to a car accident at one year old, he is now 6 years old. We have been using K9 Rehab for many years to help us with the special care an amputee dog needs. Tonka is rambunctious and very happy with a bit of demanding Border collie traits that require us to keep him entertained and exercised. Tonka enjoys adventure hikes with K9 Rehab and his fellow friends give him companionship especially since he lost his buddy Oliver a year ago. It is essential to keep a tripod dog as lean and fit as possible to ensure there isn’t unnecessary stress put on the remaining limbs or spine due to obesity or strained muscles and tendons which could end up being fatal if the remaining legs suffer trauma. Tonka also gets massages twice a week on his entire body, his muscles have to work extra hard and can become very tight and sore. Ensuring he is stretched out and pain free helps him be the active Border collie he is. We always recommend K9 Rehab to our friends especially if their dogs are special needs or injured.

  • Leni - Labrador Retriever

    Our Golden Lab Leni is getting on in age, formerly an active farm dog Leni is getting slow and sore in his senior years. We are seeing huge changes in Leni’s wellbeing and less painful movement after he receives his weekly massage from K9 Rehab. Leni suffers from osteoarthritis, non-malignant lymphomas in various areas of his body and overall old age. We live in a two story home and prior to having his weekly massages Leni needed to be carried up and down the stairs to go to the bathroom. Now Leni is getting up the stairs fine and even chasing the squirrels around the back yard again. Leni’s quality of life has greatly improved, where we were once thinking he may have reached the end of a good life we are now celebrating and enjoying our active dog again. Thank you K9 Rehab for giving Leni his smile back.
