Here at Blue Bear, we are revolutionising animal rehabilitation in Essex for small pets such as dogs and cats. We talked last time how the centre, based in Copford near Colchester has a large hydrotherapy pool and treatment rooms however one of the most specialised treatment we offer for mainly dogs is our aquatic treadmill.
This is an amazing piece of equipment that has a standard treadmill with an enclosed tank that can be filled with warm water to any level to take the weight off the limbs of the animals as they exercise.

It is hard to believe what has happened since we last posted a blog, so firstly sorry for that, however since the last post Blue Bear Animal Rehabilitation has opened its state-of-the-art facility for pet and canine hydrotherapy and treatment in Colchester in Essex. The centre is actually located just outside Colchester in Copford and houses a huge hydrotherapy pool to be able to offer the very best treatment for your dogs. We also have a fantastic aquatic treadmill which allows for treatment without putting pressure on joints.
The kind of cases we have seen have included post operative, joint issues, hip dysplasia, spinal problems, elbow issues and weight management.
Beyond the canine hydrotherapy we have several treatment rooms and we can offer laser therapy and canine massage, so we are able to tailor the treatment for your pet.
The centre also has a lovely retail area and we will tell you more about this in future posts, but if you are in Essex and passing us, pop in and have a look...
