Our Story

Once Upon A Time, There Was A Dog Lover... A Dog Lover Who Believed There Must Be More To Offer Her Aging Collie...

Caroline’s journey with canine hydrotherapy began over 20 years ago when her 10-year-old Border Collie, Lady, suffered from severe arthritis and spinal problems. Advised by her vet to give Lady complete rest, unsurprisingly Caroline found it challenging to keep a Border Collie calm without exercise. She then questioned if swimming, beneficial for humans, could also help dogs like Lady. 

And So The Story Began...

Over the past two decades, CS Hydro-Physio has evolved from a standard hydrotherapy practice to a comprehensive canine rehabilitation facility. With a compassionate team of highly qualified therapists, we offer a combined approach of hydrotherapy, physiotherapy, and advanced pain management techniques, such as laser therapy, to tailor effective treatment plans for every dog that enters our doors.

Our Mission:

At CS Hydro-Physio, our mission is to provide the highest quality care for every dog we have the pleasure of treating. We aim to increase mobility, restore function, reduce pain, improve quality of life, and decrease the risk of further injury, allowing you and your dog to share the longest and most enjoyable time together possible. 
From the Very Beginning...
...Untill Now. Look How We Have Grown.

Our Clinics

CS Hydro Physio operates two convenient locations in Tilehurst and near Theale, both equipped with the same exceptional facilities and therapeutic team, guaranteeing consistent quality care. While you may have a preference, you have the flexibility to choose either center based on your convenience and scheduling preferences…

Tilehurst Clinic

Our Tilehurst Clinic has been providing exceptional care for hundreds of dogs since February 2004. This clinic has a cozy and welcoming environment, while still being equipped with all of our state-of-the-art facilities, including an underwater treadmill, hydrotherapy pool and laser therapy. Although we treat dogs of all shapes and sizes at our Tilehurst clinic, it particularly suits smaller dogs, as our shallow steps ensure easy access to the pool and are perfect for between swim physio. Our experienced team ensures each dog receives the utmost care and attention.

Conveniently located at 249 Overdown Road, Reading, Berkshire RG31 6NX, Tilehurst Clinic is open Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm.

Theale Clinic

Our newer Clinic near Theale first opened its doors in January 2023 and has been incredibly popular with our clients. Boasts the same exceptional facilities as Tilehurst, including an underwater treadmill, hydrotherapy pool, laser therapy. Theale also offers a larger and brighter separate space that doubles up as a physiotherapy and a reception room. Additionally, we offer gait analysis and canine MOTs/health checks. Ideal for the extra large dogs, our clinic features a ramp for easy pool access, ensuring a comfortable experience for every patient. Our dedicated team, shared with Tilehurst Clinic, ensures consistent excellence in care.

Located at The Oaks, Bottom Lane, Sulhamstead, Reading RG7 4BA, Theale Clinic is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 am to 5 pm.

Events & Fund Raising

Muddy Dog Challenge 2023

Last September, our team embarked on an slippery journey at the Muddy Dogs Challenge in Windsor Great Park. Together, we conquered the muddy trails, raising an incredible £1200+ in support of Battersea Dogs Home. It was an unforgettable experience, and we're eagerly anticipating the opportunity to do it all over again in 2024. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported us along the way ❤️

Muddy Dog Challenge 2023

In September 2023, the sun was shining bright as we participated in the Oakley Dog Show at Balmore Park! 🌞 Our team had a fantastic time judging the adorable contestants and meeting fellow dog lovers. We had our Rehab leads and doggie muscle rub on sale, along with sweet treats for all attendees. It was a memorable event, and we're excited to announce that we'll be back judging again this year! Keep an eye out for updates.
