Swim to Recovery: New Book Explores Canine Hydrotherapy

Swim to Recovery: Canine Hydrotherapy Healing is a new dog care book that's truly unique. Out this January, 2012 from Hubble and Hattie, the book covers all aspects of canine hydrotherapy—a special form of underwater exercise for dogs.

Canine hydrotherapy is useful in rehabilitation from physical injuries, and its gentle, low-impact nature makes it appropriate for many dogs with joint problems. It's also great for providing general exercise to help maintain your dog's health and fitness.

Swim to Recovery is the work of author Emily Wong, a graduate of Writtle College with a degree in Animal Management. She's not only a qualified canine hydrotherapist through the National Association of Registered Canine Hydrotherapists and the Canine Hydrotherapy Association, she is also a true animal lover and friend to dogs, and her compassion, dedication, and spirit of innovation make Swim to Recovery shine.

The book explores all the basic aspects of canine hydrotherapy and includes information about other alternative treatments for dogs. An overview of canine health issues, their symptoms, prevention, and treatment options is included, as well. Especially interesting are the case studies: Wong has included the stories of several dogs who were successfully treated through canine hydrotherapy, allowing the reader to gain a firmer grasp on the real-life benefits that this type of therapy can offer.

At 128 pages, this paperback edition is a concise and easy read. Whether you have an overweight dog that could use more exercise, a dog who simply likes to swim, a dog who needs a low-impact sport, or a dog requiring post-operative or pre-operative rehabilitation or conditioning, Swim to Recovery offers a unique option to consider. Get the book, grab your dog, and hit the pool—both you and your furry friend will enjoy the fun!
