Lara uses a combination of exercise, manual and electrotherapy treatments, including laser,and can also custom make splints. Facilities include stables and an outdoor arena for horses, a hydrotherapy pool for dogs.
Canine hydrotherapy is extremely effective in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Dogs who suffer pain exercising on land can develop strength and fitness much more comfortably in a warm weightless environment. Swimming is not only a great way to relieve pain, swelling and stiffness, it promotes relaxation, and helps to build cardiovascular fitness and strength.
