The Benefits of Water...
water and swimming has been proven to loosen joints, relax muscles, and
reduce stress, pain and anxiety. It is used as a healing agent and increases
the body's range of motion. Swimming is a superb low-impact exercise and an excellent
cardiac exercise. Geriatric,
arthritic, overweight and handicapped dogs benefit from swimming as they can
be free to move their bodies differently than on land. Swimming is an excellent activity to get a
post-surgical dog back into shape and work atrophied muscles and limbs.
