For my basenjis' Christmas/Birthday gifts this year I got them all a massage from a pet massage therapist. One of the members of our local racing club has a pet massage business and I talked to her about getting an appointment for Rio because she is often very tight and seems to have a hard time letting go of her stress. In the end I decided to get Rio a 1 hour massage and the rest all got 1/2 hour massages.
I am really impressed with all that it has done for Rio. I didn't realize how much tension she was holding onto until after her massage was done. She has been in a much better mood since having her massage 2 weeks ago. She plays more and her posture is much better too. I was given instructions in how to massage her on a regular basis to help keep her loose which she enjoys.
Does anyone else use pet massage?
