Hydrobathing

Our Clinic provides hydrobath services any week day by appointment. We use Fidos Rinse Concerntrate which is a product specialised for knock down treatment of fleas and ticks. 

Ideally your dog should only be washed every two weeks, as regular bathing strips their coat of natural oils and can lead to dandruff.   

Don't forget to give us a call or pop in and make an appointment for our discount day, EVERY Wednesday (Murgon and Kingaroy) and Monday (Wondai clinic)!!

 

About the hydrobath and it's benefits
The hydrobath is designed to clean your dog the way hand washing just can't - it's certainly tidier and much more convenient.

The high strength fibreglass hydrobath tub is suitable for all sizes and breeds from Maltese Terriers to Great Danes and there is no mess to clean up after bath time or dogs running away from the hose or bucket - the hydrobath keeps both dog and water suitably contained. With an inbuilt heating system it can supply cold or hot water, depending on the season and the requirements of each individual dog.

The spray head produces a unique hydro-combing action that massages and stimulates the skin, so not only is it the most effective way of washing your dog but also provides a therapeutic water massage. This helps with blood circulation, relieves tired muscles and has been found to be beneficial for arthritis sufferers and older dogs. Water penetrates the coat getting right to the skin removing dry dead skin cells, embedded flea eggs and other materials that can be hidden and hard to get rid of, especially for dogs with longer and thicker coats.

Another excellent advantage is that certain treatment solutions for skin conditions or flea prevention can be added to the water during the hydrobath. This ensures that maximum benefit is obtained from any treatment as the water spray not only gets deeply into the fur but also reaches the skin which is most important for any type of treatment.
