All dogs can benefit from gentle massage when areas of discomfort are located. The dogs love it! Best of all: simple massage can be taught to you and practiced at home!
Therapeutic massage can relieve soreness and stiffness due to muscle strain, and can reduce inflammation. Senior pets can especially benefit from another technique known as Passive Range of Motion exercise, which exercises the joints through flexion and extension and involves the manipulation of the body. Moving the joints helps to nourish the cartilage, resulting in optimum healing of old and new injuries.
