Senior dogs tend to suffer aches and pains more. Whether it is due to arthritis or lack of sufficient movement, massage therapy will help to relief the pain. Massage therapy also increases blood and lymph circulation which improves overall health. Stretches will also be done to ensure the older dogs have as much range of motion in their legs as possible.
Most of all, massage gives an improved sense of overall well-being. As we humans can feel it when receiving a massage, our beloved pet companions can too.
