Ricco had his left knee surgery 12 months back, he was limping pretty badly after his surgery. I decided to put Ricco on hydrotherapy after his surgery. I got my vet’s approval to start him on some light exercises to build on his muscle mass and to curb his weight.
Now after 7 months of hydrotherapy, Ricco is back to his old self. Running and bouncing around, walking without any signs of limping. Ricco is showing signs of regaining muscle back to his hind legs as well.
It is so nice to have such a wonderful experience swimming with you guys and to know that Ricco is in good hands!
He’s lost incredible 10kg since he has started swimming. He just to drag his hind legs because his hip was really weak. But ever since the first time, he was really tired for 2 days but still could walk normally after that. Now, after 10 months of weekly swimming, he is healthier and happier than he has ever been. Not only can he walk normally, he can now jump and run and play like he did when he was a puppy. Thank God for Canine Wellness!
To add on, he used to go for anti-inflammatory jabs for his hip, but they didn’t help and it actually made him sick. There’s really nothing like a good exercise.
Generally happy with service and staff's attitude and service has been prompt. Macy is always looking forward to her swim here and gets a great workout everytime she is here. She goes back thoroughly exercised! She didn't use to have the strength to stand and prop herself up on the sofa at home but after several swim sessions, she is able to even jump up the sofa.
"We are very glad we started Nudge on aqua therapy at Canine Wellness and Rehab Centre. Within 3 sessions, we have seen marked improvement in her. She now moves better and she drags her affected leg lesser when we bring her on her walks. Most importantly, Nudge loves swimming and this is the highlight of her week! The professionalism of the staff and Lynn have really impressed us and we would definitely recommend Canine Wellness to our friends."
"My dog went to your centre dragging her hind legs and after 3 weeks of therapy, she walked out on all four legs. Lynn adapted very well by relating to my dog the way I do. Much thanks to Lynn, Doris and Andrew for your heartful care. You're Godsent."
"Canine Wellness & Rehab Centre's friendly and passionate service towards dogs is evident. It has a clean, nice therapeutic atmosphere. My dogs have weak hind legs problem and one of them even had multiple surgery on it. Over these sessions, they had developed stronger muscles and can now walk in a clearly better posture. Not only did my dogs became healthier and livelier, they also began to love and enjoy swimming generally. Every week, it's something the dogs and myself look forward to. Good job Lynn and team, keep it up!"

“Lynn has a great demeanour with Hot Dog who has taken to her very well, and made a new friend! We’ve noticed Hot Dog increasingly enjoying his swims, and becoming stronger. His stamina is improving, and his legs are getting more mobility where previously they were stiff. With hydrotherapy, Hot Dog’s quality of life has improved and we would recommend this for other dogs with mobility issues or even for a fitness swim and bonding time!”
"Bringing Maggie & Miko to Canine Wellness is always filled with fun and laughter. Lynn is a very patient and loving therapist with great knowledge on caring for the furries. Also staffs at Canine are friendly and helpful too. I'm happy to see my gals are at their safe hands. Thank you Lynn and her team for the great service."
“My hubby and I had always wanted to bring our dog Happi for a swim. We went from East to the West of Singapore but we can’t find any clean swimming pool.
We managed to see some beautiful pictures posted via Face book by my friend Tracy who brought her Golden Retriever for a swim at Canine Wellness & Rehab Centre. She passed me Lynn’s name card (Therapist) and we made appointment with her.
Facilities: When we first went to Canine Wellness & Rehab Centre, we were surprise that the place is clean and the swimming pool is indoor!
The place is spacious and clean (air-condition)
Therapist: Lynn, the therapist is very patience when she taught Happi how to swim. Happi was very nervous and scared of water. All along I thought dog knew how to swim by itself but No. The way I see how my dog react when she was place in the water together with Lynn shock me, Happi does not know how to move in water. Lynn was very patience by moving happi slowly into the water, slowly guiding her how to swim. Within the 3rd session, Happi can swim by herself… Seeing how Happi swim in water is like seeing my new born child how to walk! I can feel that Happi is always looking forward the next session to meet up with Lynn .
Staff: The Staff are all very friendly and patience too! They are all great animal lovers! They helped to wear float for happi before swimming and after the swimming session, they patiently blow dry my little dog before giving it back to us. Great service!!!
Through this place, I get to know quite a no. of dog owners. A great place to know new dogs and friends.
Highly recommended to all dogs lovers. Bring your dog along for fitness swim; you may have the opportunities to swim with Happi the dog. Hahah”
"We are very pleased with the quality of service you have provides. We sincerely appreciate your responsiveness, professionalism on and the way you conduct swim session. The spacious area and facility giving my Gal, Pumpkin, full access of running happily. Its really hard to find such in Singapore and I'm truly glad i have found here. Wish other furkids have chance to try it out too. Thank you for your excellent service."
"It was toby's first swim and he has enjoyed all his swimming time in the pool. He has the pool to himself whereby he will not b distracted and Lynn was always in it with him to overcome his fear. Toby was able to exercise his legs muscles freely during his hydrotherapy and after 2 swims he was able to walk longer distances and after 5 swims he is no longer limping while walking. Overall was a pleasant and enjoyable time spent there while treatment was given during play."
