All dogs can benefit from gentle massage once areas of discomfort are
located. Therapeutic massage can relieve the discomfort from soreness and
stiffness due to muscle strain and reduce inflammation. Senior pets
especially can benefit from another technique known as passive range of
motion exercise. This exercises the joints through flexion and extension
which involves the manipulation of the body. Moving the joints helps to
nourish the cartilage. This produces optimum healing of an injury, old or
new. Dogs love massage!
Simple massage can be taught to owners..
