Sara Marsh, IAAT Animal Physiotherapist & Canine Sports Massage Therapist based in Somerset

Why massage your dog?

What is the point?

As our knowledge in sports therapy has increased over the years, we have discovered that massage and other therapies greatly help our performance, recovery and overall wellbeing, and it is no different for dogs. 

Dogs get sore muscles just like us. They have areas of tightness and restriction that could result in injury.

We often see signs of muscle pain or fatigue in our dogs when they are unwilling to be touched in certain areas. Maybe your dog is not jumping and playing as well as they usually do. 

Dogs are no different from us – we often see hip dysplasia, arthritis, cruciate ligament injuries, carpal and hock injuries, all of these can be helped by massage – especially in the geriatric dog. 

Regular massage will help to keep their muscles supple and working well to prevent further injury and in some cases increase performance, it will also relax your dog which will help to lead to a better quality of life.

It will also help to strengthen the bond between you and your canine companion. For many dogs they will just appreciate the attention and not realise that the massage is also having an effect on their overall wellbeing and long-term health. 

The locations covered are Weston-super-Mare, Highbridge, Burnham On Sea, Yatton, Banwell, Winscombe
