What is Dog Massage

Dog massage is NOT petting. Dog massage is focused, intentional and deliberate touch, to provide specific, beneficial results.

A trained massage practitioner will promote the overall health and quality of life of your dog.

Massage is not a substitute for veterinary care, it is a compliment to traditional veterinary medicine.

"Routine pet massage should go hand-in-hand with good nuturition and sufficient exercise" Dr. Michael W. Fox DVM and former vice president of the Humane Society of the United States, from his book 'The Healing Touch'

Services offered by The Dog Masseuse compliment veterinary care and are not a substitute for veterinary care.
