Burns Pet Nutrition is thrilled to announce its new partnership with Splash Paws a canine hydrotherapy referral centre in Staplehurst, Kent. Splash Paws offers one-on-one hydrotherapy sessions for dogs, carried out by qualified hydrotherapists, to improve their health, mobility, physical and mental well-being. The centre uses the latest equipment and is the only UK canine hydrotherapy centre to have the Premium Physio-Tech Underwater Treadmill.

Burns Pet Nutrition has donated £5,000 towards a new therapy room at the centre and is donating its award-winning natural pet food to every rescue dog that receives a hydrotherapy session. Hydrotherapy involves non-weight bearing exercise in heated water, which is ideal for helping dogs with many conditions such as orthopaedic problems or those recovering from injury or surgical procedures. It also helps keep dogs in great physical condition which is why Splash Paws offers fitness sessions for agility and show dogs.

Burns Pet Nutrition founder John Burns said;

I was very impressed by the unique approach taken by Splash Paws and delighted to be able to help financially and by donating food. As a follower of holistic practice and acupuncture, I see hydrotherapy as a very natural way to help dogs recover and benefit from exercise that is easy on the joints.”

Splash Paws will be offering reduced rate sessions to local rescue centres, to help rehabilitate injured and ill dogs, giving them a better quality of life and a greater chance of being rehomed. Graham Cooper, who founded the centre alongside his wife Julie, said

“I am extremely proud and excited to have the opportunity to work in partnership with Burns Pet Nutrition. I believe that hydrotherapy at Splash Paws and Burns’ award-winning food is an amazing formula that will most certainly improve the lives of many dogs in rescue charities. I would like to thank John Burns for his kind support towards this project.”
