Swim sessions consist of activities such as swimming, stretching, floating and gentle touch in the warm waters of the pool and each session is dependent on things such as the condition and age of the dog, the goals of the owner, the nature of the dog’s injury (if any) and how the dog emotionally reacts to the water.
The Puddle is not a licensed veterinarian facility and in compliance with Illinois State Law 225, section 4, point 8 – we do not diagnose or cure specific ailments, perform surgery or prescribe medications. Bodywork and swimming are not a replacement for proper veterinary care and any injuries or diseases must be medically diagnosed and treated by a licensed veterinarian. A complete history is necessary for accurate treatment of any kind and participation by the owner/handler is essential to achieving beneficial results. The Puddle is not responsible for any damages to others or to any property caused by the owner/handler’s dog. The Puddle is not responsible for any injuries incurred by the owner/handler or his/her dog as a result of the use of the pool.
Payment is due in full at the time of treatment and appointments not canceled at least 24 hours in advance will be billed at half that standard fee, if we are unable to fill your existing appointment time slot.
