Dog Massage

The benefits of dog massage

Here are the top reasons why giving your dog a massage is a great idea:

  • Stress and anxiety reduction. Dogs can easily get stressed or anxious. It could be a loud noise, a thunderstorm, or the glimpse of a cat. Regardless of the reason, a massage can ease your dog’s tension and relax him into comfort so he forgets about his worries.

  • Improves body functions. A massage can increase your dog’s circulation, decrease blood pressure, improve lymphatic fluid movement, strengthen his immune system, aid digestion, stimulate the kidneys and liver, and encourage deeper breathing.

  • Promotes overall well-being. When humans get a massage, they feel refreshed, balanced, and revitalized. Your dog will feel the same way after you give her a good rub down.

With all of the advantages of dog massage, how can you not give it a try?
