Hy­dro help for pets

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

A HY­DROTHER­APY re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­tre has come to the aid of an an­i­mal char­ity to sup­port some of its need­i­est pa­tients.

Staff at the RSPCA Altham cen­tre were re­cently faced with the ‘heart­break­ing dilemma’ of hav­ing to put a 10-month old Ger­man Shep­herd called King to sleep due to his very se­vere hip dys­pla­cia.

The ‘painful and un­com­fort­able con­di­tion’ left King with an ‘ex­tremely. poor qual­ity of life’, how­ever he is now com­ing on ‘leaps and bounds’ after reg­u­lar ses­sions at the My Vet Hy­dro cen­tre.

Jeanette Ain­scough, RSPCA Altham an­i­mal cen­tre man­ager, said they have been left ‘stag­gered’ by the re­sults of the state-of-the-art cen­tre in Clay­ton-le-Dale.

She said: “They have very kindly worked with sev­eral of our an­i­mals who were fac­ing ex­treme dif­fi­cul­ties.

“The progress and im­prove­ments that we have seen with th­ese an­i­mals are stag­ger­ing.”
