Hampshire’s integrated hydrotherapy, physiotherapy and training centre

At the Canine Fitness Centre, we specialise in the management of pain and optimisation of performance in pets and working dogs. We cater for animals with arthritis, agility, sporting or working dogs with injury and any pet recovering from surgery. We also advise on animal health, weight loss and can advise on training programmes to help prevent injury.

We seek to discover the underlying cause of pain and treat this via a tailored mix of our different therapies and services. We offer small animal physiotherapy, sports massage and hydrotherapy for dogs amongst a variety of other complementary pet services in the heart of Hampshire.
