October 1st saw the opening of SP K9 Therapy, a local professional therapy and rehabilitation centre for sporting, working & recovering dogs.
This brand new, purpose-built hydrotherapy centre offers a state-of-the-art heated hydrotherapy pool, water treadmill, and a fully qualified team that can provide a combination of hydrotherapy, pre & post-operative physiotherapy, rehabilitation programmes, a spectrum of electrotherapies and tailored fitness & conditioning.
SP K9 Therapy aims to provide a service that completely meets the needs of your pet, utilising professional practices and through the various techniques and treatments they can help them improve their mobility, achieve fitness and weight-loss goals, work on water confidence, and of course have fun.
SP K9 Therapy has been started and is run by local canine therapist Steph Pratley. After qualifying with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Therapy, Steph had a desire to place herself within the industry where she could make a difference to those dogs that really needed professional, ethical and customised support in their recovery and rehabilitation programme. Steph and the team are strong believers in always providing a high standard of care, with tailored treatments that meet the needs of your pet.
Steph is also an enthusiastic member of a local Flyball team and is often travelling around the UK to agility and Flyball competitions, with her very dedicated terriers by her side. This experience adds first-hand experience to the rehabilitation and conditioning elements of the services offered by SP K9 Therapy.
The centre is now open to the public and Steph welcomes people to get in touch to book a 1-2-1 slot to come and have a look around.
Steph says, “I am so excited for the time ahead, this is a true dream and passion of mine now coming true. It has been a long process to get to this point and a lot of hard work with all the renovation and building work required in order to transform the facility into what you see today. I am looking forward to being able to help and support the recovery and rehabilitation of the dogs that visit the therapy centre.”
