Pet Massage Therapy

Registered Small animal Massage therapist, Chris Clarke, is happy to provide this service to our clients by appointment in one of our therapy rooms. Canine massage can be offered for relaxation, rehabilitation and competition – “sports massage” – purposes.

The benefit of massage to dogs is equivalent to the benefit experienced by humans. Massage therapy has many physiological effects for the subject. The physiological effects of canine massage include the following:

  • Improved circulation and endorphin release
  • Increased toxin excretion
  • Relaxation and tension relief
  • Reduced stiffness helping to restore mobility to injured areas
  • Injury prevention by increasing range of motion and enhancing muscle tone
  • Improved athletic performance and endurance
  • Posture maintenance and balance
  • Improved mental focus and attitude
  • Healthy skin and coat promotion by distributing natural oils

Canine massage therapy should not be used as a substitute for veterinary medical care. However, when used in combination with medical care, it can help enhance the recovery process in many medical cases. Call 604-575-2614 and book today!

Poor oral hygiene in dogs is more serious than most pet owners know. Roughly 70-80 percent of dogs develop periodontal disease by the time they are three years old. That’s a significant figure, especially, since poor oral hygiene is also linked to shorter life span. Gingivitis is actually a bacterial infection. When left untreated, the bacteria begin to move under the gum line, where they infect the teeth at their roots. This is periodontal disease, and it has numerous symptoms. These include bad breath, excessive drooling, yellow or brown tartar deposits on the teeth, angry red gums, and loose or missing teeth.

Untreated, infection can enter the blood stream where it can cause damage to the liver, heart, and kidneys. Please note that Wags K9 performs maintenance cleanings only. If your dog requires a more in depth cleaning or extractions, they will notify you that you will need to see your veterinarian for treatment. Reserve your spot now! 604-575-2614
