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.
