What Is Massage Therapy?
Have you ever had a massage done at a spa, or even a hand massage in general? That is exactly similar to massage therapy administered to our canines and felines.
Canine massage therapy offered for canines and felines is used to achieve relaxation, rehabilitattion, and conditioning (for sports/ competition dogs). The benefit of a massage for your pet is equivalent to the benefit experienced by humans.
Veterinary care can not be replaced by canine massage therapy. Rather, when used in combination with veterinary medical care, it can enhance the recovery process in many medical cases. Canine massage therapy can be used for the following benefits:
- Help to relieve age related problems
- Reverse muscle atrophy from inactivity or disuse
- Provide relief from muscle tension, soreness, spasms, and weaknesses
- Provide relief from chronic pain and discomfort from arthritis, hip dysplasia, etc.
In addition, canine massage can provide emotional well-being for the animal.
