What Does a Canine Massage Treatment Involve?
Your dog’s wellbeing and comfort are of upmost importance to me and therefore I will ensure that every treatment is tailored to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your dog. I will ensure that as caring owners you are kept informed about and understand what is happening throughout your dog’s treatment. I strongly feel that in most situations a dog is happier with its owner present and will therefore generally encourage you to remain with your dog throughout their treatment.
Your dog’s initial canine massage treatment will take around 1 ½ hours, this will include assessment on:
- Gait and postural analysis
- Muscular health check
- Medical history
- Information about your dog’s lifestyle, diet and any areas of concern that you or your veterinary surgeon may have
- 1 hr canine massage therapy
Depending on initial findings I will usually suggest seeing your dog for a maximum of 3 consecutive sessions over a 3 week period, this will enable your dog to gain and you to see maximum benefit from their canine massage therapy. However some dogs will only require occasional maintenance treatments whilst others with complex needs, such as needing support with neurological or orthopaedic issues, may benefit from more regular treatments.
As part of my commitment to working best practice, if at any time I find issues that mean canine massage therapy is not suitable for your dog or if canine massage is not helping improve your dog’s condition I will refer you back to your veterinary surgeon for further investigations.
After initial consultation subsequent canine massage treatments will last up to 1 hour.
All treatments will be charged at £35 per session.
Discounts can be discussed for multiple dog treatments.
