Canine Massage for Seniors
Most clients will contact their canine massage therapist when their companion shows the signs of aging.
Dog massage therapy is especially helpful for senior pets to keep them comfortable and mobile. It's a time when you notice them slowing down and having challenges with simple daily tasks like laying down, climbing stairs and getting in/out of the vehicle. It's also a time when our clients often find that they are desparately seeking support for their dogs and for themselves; to guide them through the emotionally charged chapter of their beloved pet's life. As a top animal wellness center in our area, we are full of knowledge and experience to share with you as we embrace you with compasson and hope.
Preparing for a Canine Massage
When coming to our office, we provide a quiet, safe environment to perform your dog's massage. If we are coming to you, it is best to perform a massage when your companion feels relaxed and comfortable environment. Regardless of the location, dogs will act like dogs, so we encourage you to be prepared to help keep your dog focused or occupied during the massage. Read our blog for some tips. Also, another dog can be brought into the massage as a partner to help if your dog does not like being alone.

Jenny has been giving my dog massages for a few months now. He LOVES Jenny! He has a history of not enjoying body handling but massages are a different story- he leans right in. We are now pairing massages with chiropractic treatment to address Auggie’s back pain and just one combo has proven to be so effective.
