Animal Massage and Canine Hydrotherapy
Massage has the same great benefits for animals as it does for you! Plus animals have the ability to integrate the benefits of massage into their bodies more quickly than we do. Massage may be used for:
"Swimming may be the single best activity for arthritic joints. We and our dogs are buoyant in the water, easing the impact of exercise on cartilage, while the motions of swimming require the swimmer to use full motion of the joints. Swimming helps increase flexibility and strength, making it the perfect activity for a dog with osteoarthritis."
From Canine Rehabilitation & Physical Therapy:
"There are many benefits of aquatic therapy. Exercising in water is effective for improving strength, muscular endurance, cardio respiratory endurance, range of motion (ROM), agility, and psychological well-being, while minimizing pain."
