It’s difficult to watch our animals in pain and not be able to do anything to alleviate it. As part of a holistic approach to veterinary care, Terri Daldos, CMT, ESMT provides therapeutic canine, equine and exhibitor sport massage.

How do you know if massage therapy is right for your furry family member? Just like with humans, there are a number of benefits that come with it. If your animal is especially prone to anxiety, this procedure may help ease it. Dogs provide excellent feedback on what works for them and what doesn’t, so it’s easy to customize the procedure for your pet’s specific needs. For more acute problems, massages can help with sprained ligaments or painful scar tissue.

If your pet has joint problems or inflammation, it can increase mobility and range of motion for a higher quality of life. And for generally sore muscles from overuse, massage therapy can help your animal recover faster. This is especially useful for horses.

Though it may not come to mind when you first think of veterinary care, massage therapy is an excellent way to help manage painful conditions. Sometimes it’s difficult to try to treat a chronic illness with only medication, and Terri is happy to go the extra mile for your pet’s comfort.

If you have any questions about the procedure or if you’d like to know if it’s the right one for your pet, please feel free to reach out to us at Family Member Animal Hospital, we’re happy to help.
