Coco the cat is 16 years old and suffers with chronic arthritis in her forelimbs. She uses the underwater treadmill to strengthen her muscles to prevent further atrophy and muscle loss. Coco enjoys being in the warm water, where she walks against the flow.

Before starting treatment, Coco was having trouble doing normal kitty activities like jumping up on fences. After 10 sessions on the underwater treadmill, Coco is back to jumping up on counters and running around the garden chasing birds.
