Hydrotherapy client, Winnie, enjoyed her TV debut swimming with Beach Dog Aqua Therapy in Santa Rosa Beach! During the interview, Tess Rowland of WMBB News 13 asked Diane about the health benefits of aqua therapy for dogs and the reason she became a Certified Canine Hydrotherapist.
Winnie (the star, of course!) is a 135-lb 5.5 year-old Newfoundland residing in Seaside, FL. Winnie suffers from arthritis in her hind legs. The vet recommended hydrotherapy to relieve her arthritic pain and promote weight loss. Aqua therapy provides a form of low-impact exercise that can help alleviate arthritic pain, as well as aid in weight loss that will also reduce the pressure on her hind legs.
Here is a clip from the WMBB interview!

Gracie is a 6-year-old yellow lab that has been diagnosed with myelopathy, a nervous system disorder that affects the spinal cord. Her condition occurred as a result of an injury causing the extrusion of a spinal disk while playing with her sibling. Gracie’s fur parents are seeking out noninvasive, holistic treatments.
Beach Dog Aqua Therapy is providing Gracie with both hydrotherapy and red light therapy services, as well as unique blends of Young Living® essential oils tailored to Gracie’s condition. These blends are applied post-swim and just before her red light therapy sessions. Her fur parents also have the essential oils blends for at-home treatments. These therapeutic services and products will help her Gracie improve her overall mobility and muscle strength over repeat sessions.
