Poppy is a 10 year old Springer Spaniel. She retired from competitive agility at 5 after a diagnosis of Spondylosis, however she still remains very active. She now has arthritis in her right stifle and both hind paws. Massage treats areas of overcompensation from this, and helps to manage her pain.
Fly is an 8 year old Collie cross. She came to me as a very nervous rescue at 7 months old, and although she’s now a generally happy dog she still struggles with anxiety. She is often tense and massage relaxes her and helps to return her muscle tone to normal. It has helped her to accept touch as well.
Finn is a 5 year old Springer cross who was born in rescue and came to me as a puppy. He’s an extremely active boy who is also very accident prone! He’s now retired from agility due to a chronic shoulder ligament sprain, but still enjoys hoopers, rally obedience and scentwork. Massage helps to pick up small issues before they become bigger problems, as well as treating his mostly self inflicted injuries.
