Our 2,848 sq. ft. Warm Water Therapy & Holistic Veterinary Wellness Center features a 9’ X 20’ indoor swimming pool for dogs.
The water is a natural salt based pool using no harsh chemicals as it uses a Chlorine Generator to create a natural chlorine like it would in the ocean. We do “shock it” every evening to avoid algae, but that dissipates by morning. It is equipped with special filters with the water constantly circulating through the filter system and a UV light so it is always fresh and clean, above all, nice and warm. The temperature is kept at 32 degrees, the optimal temperature for Warm Water Therapy along with 30 minutes in the warm water creating the perfect recipe for maximum benefits and results. The 2,000 sq ft spa area is equipped with two ramps, one incoming and one outgoing and keeps distractions to a minimum when arriving or departing. There are no stairs anywhere in the building.
All entrances and areas at WaterWorkz are wheelchair accessible. For old and injured canines or the over excited and enthusiastic dogs, the rear door is used to enter and exit the pool area. This allows fewer steps getting to the pool, something the dogs really appreciate!
The spa area is a calm and soothing space for swimming in our indoor swim spa. We offer warm water therapy, rehabilitation, conditioning and of course lots of fun! Everyone enjoys their visit whether they are coming for Hydrotherapy, a Therapeutic Massage, Chiropractic Care, Healing Touch for Animals session or to see our Homeopathic Vet. The spa is a place where your canine companion will receive pampering, understanding, and most importantly healing in a calm nurturing and fun environment.
With easy access from Vancouver, Burnaby and anywhere in the Lower Mainland the team at WaterWorkz would love to have you come join us at the happiest place in Vancouver for dogs!
We are available 7 days a week including evenings. All sessions are by appointment, please 604.435.0002 or email us for more information.
