Momentum Clinical Canine Massage works in accordance to the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 and Exemptions Order 2015 by never working upon an animal without gaining prior veterinary consent. Therefore, a completed and signed Vet Consent form is absolutely necessary before any treatment can be carried out. This is to protect your dog and ensure that they have no underlying conditions that clinical massage may worsen. Please refer to contraindications.
Discussing your dogs’ medical history, activities of daily living, diet & supplements and main areas of concern with your dog.
Assessing the way your dog moves and holds its body whilst standing, sitting or lying down can help identify areas of concern and where they are in pain or discomfort.
Muscle, fascia, tendons, ligaments and bone are assessed for injury and issues - using the art of palpation, highlighting areas of a dogs body which are of primary and secondary concern so the most appropriate and effective therapy can be provided.
