Remedial Massage Sessions

These sessions are booked with one of our Qualified Veterinary Nurses trained in Massage

An initial assessment is required prior to booking these sessions if any other treatment modalities are required. 

Up to 30 minutes

  • Remedial massage (for pets only!)

Massage can assist in reducing pain and making your pet more comfortable by promoting circulation and improving blood flow to tight muscles and aching joints.  It also relaxes your pet and can help to improve your pet’s general comfort levels as well as their mobility.  Please ensure your pet is comfortable being handled by non-family members prior to booking.
