Getting a massage doesn’t just feel great — it can also help our bodies heal.
But, humans aren’t the only ones who can benefit. Dogs are now being treated with the same massage techniques.
One of those pets is Kylie — a fun-loving therapy dog who needs a bit of therapy herself. “She [has] a fused bone in her leg, so when she came to the owners, she had a significant limp,” says Jerry Hess, an animal massage therapist … This treatment isn’t just soothing for Kylie. It’s massage with a purpose, called Canine Kinesthetics.
