Pet Massage Provides Benefits
There's nothing like a good massage to relieve tight muscles and sore joints. Sue Bruenderman has been massaging animals in the Columbia area for three years. She says massage has many benefits.
"It reduces stress and calms your animal. It increases the blood flow," she explained.
Veterinarians also think that touch is more important to your pet's health.
"Our dogs and cats are contact oriented. They love the human touch," said veterinarian Clark Fobian.
Pet massage is very beneficial for both pets and their owners, but it should not replace regular veterinary visits. Hiring a masseuse for your pet may seem extravagant, but any pooch that can snag one is certainly a lucky dog.
One pet massage can cost anywhere from $25 to $30.
