Dog hydrotherapy (2 o 5)

Zac the terrier, injured while chasing a cat, is treated with hydrotherapy. It involves training the dog to walk on an underwater treadmill. The warm water removes the weight loading on the damaged leg and reduces pain, allowing the dog to walk normally and build up muscle mass.
