Spa Treatments For Dogs In Europe– Why Pamper My Pooch?
Massages and Body Wraps For Dogs
The benefits of spa treatments in dogs do not differ much from humans. According to Massagetherapy.com, “One of the most valuable assets of animal massage is health maintenance. Regular massage aids in early detection of abnormalities, such as swelling, injury or sensitive areas, and facilitates early medical diagnosis of problems. In some cases, the time element can be life-saving. The animal’s general overall health is boosted by an increase in blood and lymph circulation and enhancement of muscle tone and flexibility.” Body wraps relieve muscular tension, spasms, and pain. They can also help intestinal gas, reduce heart rate, and calm animals who may be nervous from traveling.
Aromatherapy For Dogs
Aromatherapy in conjunction with dog massages and body wraps will help your pet temper hyperactivity, reduce anxiety, and end motion sickness. These benefits can do wonders for a dog that needs a pick me up, especially after a long flight or car ride.
Pet Manicures For Dogs
Many dog spas offer nail trimming and filing as part of their spa services. Top dog spas in Europe offer additional services including paw soaks, pad massages, steam towels, and a gentle paw massage. A proper pet manicure helps to heal paws damaged by gravel, asphalt, snow, salt-treated roads and hot pavements. You can also bring in a specially formulated dog nail polish to the spa attendant.
