Antony Holt bringing Fourpaws Canine Hydrotherapy to Snettisham after Holt success





A new dog therapy clinic offering a unique form of treatment is set to come to West Norfolk in the next few weeks.

Antony Flint, 50, first opened up Fourpaws Canine Hydrotherapy in Holt nearly ten years ago - and now, he is bringing the business to Snettisham.

At the start of April, Mr Flint hopes to open his new premises on the Poppyfields Retail Park.

He will offer people’s canine companions the chance to swim, whether it is for post operation rehabilitation, recovery from injury, or to lose weight or improve cardiovascular fitness.

It could also help with dogs which have arthritis - Mr Flint has rheumatoid arthritis himself - and those which have been paralysed.

A lot of clients from West Norfolk have used the Holt services since 2015, so he has decided to bring them a little bit closer for loyal customers.

Mr Flint said: “I can’t wait. I do get a lot of people from there, and it will be good to repay their loyalty.

“There are a lot of dogs out there that need help.”

He will be helped by one other member of staff at the new Snettisham clinic.

The team say they aim to offer a “safe, gentle approach” to exercise and a successful therapy treatment for dogs.

The Fourpaws website says: “We understand that bringing your dog for hydrotherapy could be worrying for you, so we make every effort to reassure you every step of the way.

“Before any paws are wet, we will make sure you understand what will happen in the pool and when your dog meets our fully trained hydrotherapist.

“Our hydrotherapist will ensure they get the most benefit from the session. They will be encouraged to swim around the pool using toys, praise and encouragement, they will receive massage and movement whilst on the resting platforms and will be monitored closely at all times.”

At the Holt clinic, there are anti-swim jets, a ramp up and into the pool, and resting platforms inside of the water.
