Owned and run by a Hartpury graduate, many of the current staff also studied at Hartpury. Cotswold Dog Spa offers outpatient hydrotherapy and physiotherapy and qualified veterinary physiotherapists and hydrotherapists work as part of an integrated multi-disciplinary team, including first opinion vets, referral vets, other rehabilitation specialists and the owner.

"The best bit about my job is seeing the improvements in rehabilitation cases - from young dogs with hip dysplasia progressing from nervous and lame to excited and pain free, to neurological cases being able to stand without support, having previously been unable to stand or walk.

It’s always rewarding to know that your skills as a hydrotherapist have helped make that possible."
