Benefits of Massage

Long days of outdoor play or work can cause wear and tear on your pet's body.  Massage helps keep their body healthy by flushing toxins out of their muscle tissue.  Massage can also offer stress relief for pets whose owners are away for work or vacation.  For the older pet, massage can offer pain relief and aid in flexibility for stiff or arthritic joints.  Whether you have a couch-potato Great Dane, a water-loving Labrador, or even a frisky English Shorthair, Pet Kneads will develop a massage plan to best fit your pet's needs.

  • Improves joint flexibility
