Massage Techniques for your Pet!
- Invite your pet to lie down on warm surface.
- Always start off with a warm up by stroking slowly on your pet's head or pat them on the good spots that you know to relieve stress.
- Then gently rub in circular motion behind your pet's ear to the neck to calm the nerves.
- Slowly move on to gentle rub on the legs to release muscle tension.
- Finish off with a light massage on the belly.
