A wide network of experts
For some patients, we believe the most effective route to optimum recovery is through a combination of therapies, including hydrotherapy. That’s why we work closely with a network of chartered physiotherapists and qualified canine massage therapists in order to offer collaborative treatment. In-house therapy clinic dates coming soon.
In addition to providing therapeutic advice and services, we stock a small range of specialist pet food and supplements as well as equipment to aid with recovery and mobility. We also offer advice on pet nutrition to support health and wellbeing.
Passionate about pets
Motion Pet Rehab is owned and operated by Helen Dacre, a qualified and NARCH registered Canine Hydrotherapist, and her dedicated team of support staff. Our commitment as registered therapists means studying every year, keeping up to date with new techniques and developments so you can be certain your pet will be well looked after by knowledgeable, caring staff.
HELEN DACRE, level 3 Diploma in Small Animal Hydrotherapy and Advanced Treadmill
When my Rottweiler Amber was diagnosed with bilateral elbow arthritis, I was told her quality of life would quickly decline. She’d have to take medication for life and would be left with a permanent and painful lameness. She was such a happy, sociable dog, I was saddened to think her life would change so dramatically. I knew medication could only do so much so I researched and found a fantastic hydrotherapy centre. I was sceptical but after a nervous first session we never looked back. Her lameness quickly reduced and I was thrilled to get my girl back for several more years. I felt so inspired that I gave up my city job to retrain as a hydrotherapist with a dream of one day opening my own centre.
