BENEFITS OF CANINE & EQUINE MASSAGE

Massage for every stage of your pet’s life:

Puppies & Foals

  • Helps with early socialization
  • Helps relieve discomfort during growth spurts

Postsurgical or Postinjury Patients

  • Reduces stiffness, helping to restore mobility to injured areas
  • Helps increase range of motion after surgery

Athletes

  • Provides improved athletic performance and endurance
  • Helps with injury prevention by increasing range of motion and enhancing muscle tone

Senior Dogs & Horses

  • Provides relief from chronic pain and discomfort associated with arthritis, hip dysplasia, etc.
  • Prevents atrophy by keeping muscles toned as activity decreases with age

MASSAGE IS NOT PETTING!

Petting your animal is an essential part of your relationship with him or her. However, massage is a specialized form of therapeutic touch, utilizing specific strokes and pressures for specific results. 

 

MASSAGE IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR VETERINARY CARE!

Massage should never be considered a substitute for veterinary care.  If your animal is injured or if you suspect a health problem, please contact your veterinarian IMMEDIATELY!
