What a difference three weeks using an Underwater Treadmill can make! Munchie, a rescued Doberman Pinscher from Miami, Florida, is getting a new lease on life thanks to a new owner and an Underwater Treadmill designed specifically for canines. Munchie was found with a severe hip infection that had him bedridden for two months. He was given a 50/50 chance of survival. Using the latest physical therapy techniques offered by the vets at Lauderdale Veterinary Specialists, Munchie is on his way to recovery.
Three local doctors have donated a much needed underwater treadmill to the Seawolves of Stony Brook University. Faculty, donors and athletes praise the addition. Hydrotherapy treadmills are known for getting student athletes rehabilitated quickly with limited interruption to school and training. Underwater treadmills help athletes perform cardiatric exercises that are intended to strengthen lower extremities without risking re injury. They also decrease the likelihood that a vigorous rehabilitation routine will lead to a new injury.
“The Oasis” is helping dogs lose weight and regain mobility after an injury. Gerry Nicola, the owner of a 16-year-old dog in Florida, calls it a “miracle”. The underwater treadmill reduces an animal’s weight by 90% which allows for exercise without joint damage.
The Oasis has already helped many animals recover from debilitating injuries that, in the past, would have incapacitated these pets for life. One success story stands out and exemplifies the wondrous healing powers of Canine Hydrotherapy treadmill. Follow along with the story of Rocky: a courageous dog who was able to transform his life and renew his hope through the help of intense physical therapy and the use of the Oasis treadmill.
