Butterwick Animal Rehab Clinic is Teesside’s longest running, and most highly qualified, canine rehabilitation centre. This means you and your pet are in safe hands. We provide a good honest service which gets great results and have treated well over a thousand dogs since we started. We are passionate about making a difference. With canine Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy (pool, underwater treadmill), we can offer a complete rehabilitation package for your pet, this means less faff for you and you don't have to keep seeing a different person every time.

BARC's primary focus is to provide an individual, high quality service. We have created a practice that we believe in, even for our own family members/pets. Everyone here has one goal in mind - to help your dog feel better. You'll always be greeted with a smile and leave with an even bigger one on your face.

Our committed, caring and friendly outpatient rehabilitation clinic is staffed with an Veterinary Physiotherapist and Canine Hydrotherapists. The Team consists of a Veterinary physiotherapist and Canine Hydrotherapists. 

We pride ourselves on being focused on getting your dog back to their former glory.  Whether it's post surgery rehabilitation, maintaining your pet in old age or just to help lose a few pounds, we will work alongside you and your vet to ensure your dog gets the very best care and individual attention they deserve to restore them to peak performance. We are specialists in canine hydrotherapy and physiotherapy in the Darlington, Middlesbrough and Stockton-on-Tees along with the wider Teesside, County Durham and North Yorkshire areas.
