Hydrotherapy Courses

Animal Hydrotherapists use hydrotherapy techniques to help animals with rehabilitation needs to recover from injury or as part of pain management or even as a type of exercise for animals with mobility issues. Having a regulated qualification is essential to work as a registered animal hydrotherapist. The hydrotherapy courses offered by Animal Courses Direct are Ofqual regulated qualifications designed for learners preparing for a career working in animal hydrotherapy as a Small Animal Hydrotherapist or in a Veterinary career utilising hydrotherapy as a treatment.

We offer hydrotherapy courses as blended learning, with theory studied online and intensive practical training included towards the end of your theory studies. This is a great way to put your theory knowledge into practice and ideal for anyone working full time or needing to fit their studies around their other commitments. After the Level 3 Diploma in Small Animal Hydrotherapy, students can progress onto the Level 4 Diploma in Small Animal Hydrotherapy and then to Levels 5 and 6 Veterinary Physiotherapy (coming soon). Students can seek employment as an Animal Hydrotherapist (register with our Job Board for the latest vacancies, or contact Animal Hydrotherapy centres near where you live with your CV). Or alternatively, set up your own Animal Hydrotherapy business!
