Poolecott Canine Hydrotheraphy

About Me

My Name is Michele Townsend and I have been involved in the Animal Care Industry for the past 25 years which has given me an enormous amount of experience in all aspects of Animal Care.

When one of my dogs, Huxley, a Rottweiler began to suffer from intermittent lameness caused by Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD) it was suggested that he would benefit from regular hydrotherapy sessions.  On researching suitable facilities I found that the nearest CHA approved hydrotherapy pool was over 50 miles away in Somerset.  I therefore decided to build a hydrotherapy facility and train as a Canine Hydrotherapist so that I could ensure he received the best possible therapy.  As a result I am fully trained in Hydrotherapy, Pool Water Management and Canine First Aid having completed the nationally recognised ABC Certificate in Hydrotherapy for Small Animals, The Diploma in Canine Aqua and Hydrotherapy accredited by the Institute of Registered Veterinary and Animal Physiotherapists (IRVAP), as well as qualifications in Canine Behaviour and Training.
