Canine Massage in Dallas
What is Canine Massage?
Canine massage is a holistic, non-invasive hands-on technique that helps prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasms, and stress. While at the same time helps the body release toxins trapped in tight muscles.
Like massage for people, canine massage promotes health, relaxation, increases oxygenation, relieves pain, improves joint flexibility, and offers various benefits to the immune system.
Canine Massage is a complementary therapy to other exercise and physical therapy forms. The effects of massage are not just on the muscular system but all body systems.
Canine Massage is recommended for all dogs including but not limited too:
Sporting Dogs: Agility/Barn Hunt/Dock Diving/Hunting/Lure
Working Dogs: Guide/Service Dogs/K-9 Units/Search/Rescue
Pre & Post-Surgical Dogs
It is important to know that canine massage is not a substitute for qualified veterinary care. Canine massage is intended to enhance your dog's overall well being and complement the care provided by your veterinarian.
By Texas law, therapeutic massage on an animal is required to be done under the direct or general supervision of a licensed veterinarian. Since we are not veterinarians and are acting as independent contractors, a veterinary supervision form is required prior to your pet's first session in order to be in compliance with Texas Administrative Code 573.14.
