Commitment

As a team of dedicated veterinary health care professionals we are committed to creating quality of life for all animal companions.

Support

We achieve this through physical rehabilitation, pain management, education and community support.

Individual Solutions

We use integrative healing methods to find unsurpassed individual solutions best suited for you and your animal companions.

OUR PRACTICE

Our primary practice is located in Rynfield in Benoni.

All the water we use in the underwater treadmill is recycled and filtered in the same way our pool water is cleansed. Our facility is also solar powered. Although we do not have batteries to store the power, the entire building (pumps, air conditioners, lighting and technology) runs off solar power when the sun shines. Which is most of the time in SA!

We also operate a satellite practice at Kloof Veterinary Hospital in Bedfordview, which is offers a range of services and is run by Dr Tamsin Price.

MISSION STATEMENT

  • We are a visionary team of dedicated veterinary health care professionals. We openly explore all opportunities in our world of healing.
  • We source, investigate, test and implement unsurpassed world class integrative therapeutic solutions best suited to all companions, partners and strategic allies.
  • We are committed to quality of life for all companions. We achieve this through physical rehabilitation, pain management, education and community support.

CORE BUSINESS

We provide individualized solutions for small animal companions (cats and dogs) needing physical rehabilitation and/or pain management beyond allopathic medication and conventional Veterinary interventions.

BACKGROUND

Animal Health and Hydro started in 2009 as a result of an interest in investigating integrative therapies to support physically challenged and debilitated animal companions. Over the last eight years, this has grown into an amazing opportunity to serve our human clients, their animal companions, our colleagues and the greater community.

Our team provides Veterinary Physical Rehabilitation treatments to patients in the Gauteng region. With our new Mobile unit, we are able to reach many more homebound and otherwise inaccessible patients.

We are registered with the South African Veterinary Council and are owned and managed by Veterinarian Dr Tanya Grantham BSc(Hons); BVSc; Certificate of Safety and Competence in Veterinary Acupuncture (CertSCVA UK); Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP Univ.of Tennessee); Caninology Canine Body Worker (CCBW USA).

COMMUNITY

Pro bono Work

Dr Tanya undertakes physical rehabilitation for Husky Rescue SA and Pug Rescue SA, as well as primary veterinary health care in disadvantaged communities under the auspices of the Thanda Inja project

Professional

Our practice hosts final year Veterinary Science and Physical Rehabilitation Students, enabling them to meet their academic qualification requirements. We also teach and train qualified professionals in the field to cover their Continuing Professional Development requirements.

Public

We make information and literature available (blogs, pamphlets, articles) to improve awareness. Our primary focus is the quality of life of our animal companions. We recognise that improving quality of life of companions profoundly affects the emotional well-being of their guardians. This ripple effect is the essence of our work and underlies all that we do.
