About Mobile Dog Massage


Mobile Dog Massage provides canine muscle therapy or myotherapy which is a supportive treatment to standard veterinary care and does not replace veterinary advice. Any treatment must be carried out in accordance with the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 and Veterinary Surgeons Exemption Order 1962. Any treatment can only be performed after receipt of consent from your Veterinary Surgeon (Vet).

The Veterinary Surgeons Act (as above) allows the treatment of animals by physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths; provided the condition has first been diagnosed by a Vet who has then decided the condition can be treated by such therapists. Mobile Dog Massage operates fully within these constraints and a veterinary consent form is available on this website for download and completion by your Vet. To assist the veterinary referral system I have both Fax and email facilities to provide a quick response.

Special Dog Massage Techniques

Mobile Dog Massage will involve passive movement and massage. The massage is based around traditional Swedish Massage techniques modified through experience and training to be performed on dogs. The Swedish Massage techniques used include effleurage, petrissage, tapotement, friction and vibration. These will be used along with passive movement, passive touch, tendon release, trigger point and stress point massage, acupressure and canine set exercises. Mobile Dog Massage is a non-invasive complementary physical therapy that stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal.

Permission From Your Vet

As detailed earlier Mobile Dog Massage will only perform massage and myotherapy once permission from your Vet has been granted. The form below can be downloaded and returned by Fax (preferred), email or by hand once the form has been signed and stamped by your Vet.
