you for all that you are doing for Tara. I can tell she really
is getting stronger because of her visits to you. As you know
she underwent extensive surgery to both her hind legs. Her vet
and I thought it was important to get her exercise. She
recommended hydrotherapy. I was worried because "Beagles" hate
water. It has gone much better the I hoped for. I think that is
mainly because of you. You took it slow and earned her trust.
For that I am truly grateful. I was also impressed that you had
enough insight to realize she was cheating in her little life
vest so she did not have to kick her weaker leg. I look forward
to seeing how she does with you and just the harness. I know she
will be fine because she is in your hands.
Sue Robinson and
Thank you so much for helping Tiz. We are already seeing the
benefits of the massage and swimming.
On the way home he slept like a baby. I was watching him while
he slept and his breathing was finally normal and relaxed. It
has not been that way for 2 weeks.
When we got home, he was a little wobbly when he got out of the
car, but walked much better. He had a late lunch, pills and
water and then we walked down the road to my neighbors. He has
not walked to my neighbors since last week. My 71 year old
neighbor (Sam is his name) loves our dog and Tiz is his daytime
companion. Sam called me at work after I left to tell me Tiz
even jumped up on the couch and was napping next to the fire.
We can't wait to come back on Wednesday.
You are are amazing!!!
|I took my 9 ˝ year
old Dalmatian to Aquadog Spa after he tore his ACL and had
surgery. The vet recommended hydrotherapy, but I wasn’t
convinced it would make a difference so I just gave him time to
heal on his own first. He was not using his leg though, and
before I knew it, the muscles had atrophied. We called Aquadog
Spa, and got in quickly. After the very first session, he walked
out of the building on all 4 legs for the first time in over two
months! I saw immediate results, which only improved every time
we went. It was so much fun to watch my dog swim in the water
too!! Aquadog is a great facility, and made a huge difference in
the life of my dog.

was arthritic and had finally ceased wanting to take walks. At
12.5 years, she had never swam. Yet, as Cindy lowered her
towards the warm water, Pearl's little legs began gently
paddling before they ever touched the water. I looked into her
eyes and I could see she was not scared nor frightened.
Warm water massage and swimming with Cindy has made a tremendous
difference in Pearl's energy level. She is SO frisky and feels
SO good after her sessions. Her steps are springy again, and the
'bounciness' she once had, has returned. Pearl now can even
'rear up' and 'catch air' as she hops on her hind legs when
excited. These are things I never thought I would see in Pearl
again prior to taking her to Aquadog Spa. Her muscle tone is no
longer waning. Thank you Cindy for giving Pearl her spring back.
And Pearl's sessions RELAX ME. What a gift Cindy and Aquadog Spa
are for both Pearl and myself.
year old dog, Sneakers, hurt his back and had pinched nerves in
his neck. After two months of visits to the vet and several
prescriptions later, my poor doggy was still in extreme pain. It
broke my heart to see him in that state. Conventional methods
weren't helping so I sought the help of Cindy for hydrotherapy
and massage. Within a week, Sneakers was improving. He loved the
treatments and Cindy! We continued weekly sessions and a month
later Sneakers was back to his old self. We are both so grateful
to Cindy - she is a true gem and a great healer!!

your beloved pet hurts themselves, you do what you can to find a
way to help them. Aqua Dog and Cindy came into our lives at a
time when seeing Hannah walk again was only a distant dream. She
was 5 years old, had a ruptured disk in her back and was unable
to use her back legs after surgery. We knew her recovery would
be a long slow process and couldn’t imagine anything that might
help her recover any faster. Hannah’s Dr. suggested we try
swimming for her therapy, and now 10 months later we continue to
swim. Her recovery has been amazing and the strength she has
gained back in her legs is incredible. As we near the one year
anniversary of her injury, we know that without Cindy’s help and
the Warm Water Therapy that Hannah received, that Hannah’s life
would be much different. She now runs, walks, plays and chases
the squirrels with the help of her new stronger back and legs.
Cindy’s dedication to her animals is amazing and we are very
lucky to have found her and Aqua Dog Spa.

From an email after Kafka's first session:
Kafka did SO
well post-swimming. He, of course, passed out in the car before
we reached the end of your street. But, once we got home, I was
absolutely shocked to watch him bound, and I mean BOUND, up the
stairs! Usually, I'm behind him with a hand near his butt just
in case he misses a step, but he didn't need me at all!
We're now back to being a little pokey, but I'm hoping that if
we keep up the swimming and massage, we'll keep him running a
I'll be checking my schedule to set his next appointment soon.
Thank you so much for your compassion and skill. It was
wonderful to meet you as well, and we look forward to a long
Nicole and Kafka
I can not tell you what a difference hydrotherapy has
made for my dog, Grace. Her aching back was noticably
improved after our sessions with you. I have several
dogs and Grace tends to be more reserved and less
demanding of my attention. I look forward to the
swimming sessions as a special bonding time with my
Grace and I can tell she feels the same way. Grace is
not a swimmer by nature but your compassion and gentle
touch make hydrotherapy a wonderful healing experience
for both of us and I notice her confidence has increased
since swimming with you.
Thank you, Cindy, for this wonderful service.

I am 100 lbs., all dog ... . and I am 12 years old, so slowing
down ... Well, Mom put me in the truck and kept saying lets go
swimming ... well she drove and drove and ended up at this cool
place .. at first I didn't think it was so cool, when I realized
that I had to get into this ... POOL YIKES ... this is someone
who did a belly flop off a pier into Green Lake. Now I thought
Mom lost her marbles .. what person would make a Husky swim?
Isn't that against the Geneva Convention?
After a couple sessions I feel SOOO much better ... and look
forward to going swimming. Now I get into the pool with very
little help and can swim laps .. but I WILL not wear a spandex
swimming suit ...
