Hydrotherapy involving therapeutic exercise in the form of swimming or walking in water (in contrast to balneotherapy, which involves simply bathing) is increasingly used in dogs as an effective adjunct to surgical and medical treatments for a range of conditions, such as postoperative rehabilitation for orthopaedic and neurological conditions, as well as behavioural and obesity-related problems. This article discusses the indications, theory and practice of canine hydrotherapy, but most of the principles considered also apply to horses.
