Writtle University College (WUC) has been awarded membership of the Canine Hydrotherapy Association (CHA). The CHA is at the forefront of Veterinary Hydrotherapy and inspects all centres prior to membership to ensure that they work to the high Quality Standards set by the organisation.

Lecturer in Veterinary Physiotherapy and Canine Clinic Co-Ordinator, Lauren Hunt, said: "We are delighted to have our highly professional hydrotherapy facilities recognised by the CHA. Our membership confirms to vets and pet owners that their dogs will remain safe and receive excellent care when visiting our centre."

As members of the CHA, staff at WUC's Canine Therapy Unit will continue their commitment to water testing and bacteria reports, while carrying out Continued Professional Development. WUC's laboratory technician Jill Crooks maintains the Canine Unit's water to the highest standards, creating a clean, pleasant environment for dogs and their owners.

Lauren said: "CHA membership complements our courses as well as our clinic, by ensuring students have experience that is recognised by industry professionals." Students can begin their own journey towards CHA membership by learning to recognise and replicate the high quality present at WUC.

The CHA isn't the first professional organisation to recognise WUC's Canine Therapy Unit. The team has ABC accreditation to teach the Level 3 Certificate in Canine Hydrotherapy. WUC also offers the only veterinary physiotherapy course that enables direct entry to both the Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners (RAMP) and the Animal Health Professions' Register (AHPR) at graduation.
