At CHK our goal is to help provide the best surgical recovery, arthritis management & sports conditioning possible for local pets. Swimming is an ideal form of rehabilitation for dogs recovering from surgery or injury. It's also beneficial for dogs with joint issues or arthritis. It's a low impact, non-weight bearing workout ideal for helping with weight loss.
Swimming incorporates stretching, aerobics and strength training. Our HydroWorx pool also has a warm water massage feature which can aid in increasing blood flow and decreasing tension & pain for your dog. Swimming in our warm water pool doesn't only help your dog physically, it's relaxing & fun and you will find improvement in your dog's spirit as well!
Emily Lewis is our swim coach. Prior to working here at CHK she was a surgical technician at several local veterinary hospitals. Through that experience she is familiar with post operative care for most surgical patients. Linette Poquette, the owner of Comfort Hill Kennel, is also an animal health technician. They work in partnership with a patient's veterinary team to provide the best care possible. They are able to follow prescriptions for desired length of swim, resistance, water massage and more.
