Massage eases pain in old dogs

I so approve of this - we are considering running some special extra courses in it for our students in the future as we have a qualified person available... who also does homeopathy.

"Massage is not a substitute for good veterinary care, but can be worked alongside vets to treat old dogs, injured dogs and puppies or high-energy dogs. Massage increases circulation, gives them exercise without stressing their joints. Some dogs get so relaxed they fall asleep – that's the ultimate compliment."

Massage is very different from just stroking.. and not only is it therapeutic, but the dogs love it!
Can't blame them - people do too :)

  2. I often would give a gentle massage to cats I owned. I figured I loved massage so much, why wouldn't they. And so they did, as long as I was gentle enough for a kitty :-)
