Duke, Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty, Animals' Hospital, North London
Duke Gets Dunked. Duke the terrier is really in the swim. He is having hydrotherapy for two slipped discs at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals' Hospital in North London. Duke is one of the first pets to undergo the new treatment designed to help pets with orthopedic problems paddle back to good health. The warm water therapeutic pool has an overhead rail and pulley system which enables the harnessed dog to get vital exercise while the weight of the body is supported. This exercise builds up muscles and prevents stiff joints, particularly after a fracture. Under normal conditions this is impossible because a broken leg can be very painful to stand on and you cannot persuade a dog to walk if it hurts. After his swim, Duke is towelled dry by a nurse.
