Dog Massage

With a background in Nursing for 26 years, I have always been committed to the health and wellbeing of people.  When I established Paws to Consider I left the human nursing profession.  The commitment and principles of caring easily transitioned to my new venture and the animals who came into my care.

My involvement in the performance sport of dog agility created in me a desire to do even more to help dogs stay fit and healthy.

I studied Canine Remedial Massage at the Canine Health and Wellbeing Academy under the expert teaching of Michelle Monk (Australia).

I studied Canine Myo-manipulative Functional Therapy at Holistic Animal Studies under the expert Teaching of Dr Angelique Barbara (USA)

I studied Animal Cold Laser therapy at Holistic Animal Studies under the expert Teaching of Dr Angelique Barbara (USA)

Since graduating I have been providing dog massage therapy to dogs here in Box Hill South, at Burke Road Veterinary Clinic and at NADAC dog agility events.

Initial consults include gait, posture and functional activity assessment videography.

I provide recommendations where applicable following every massage.

Clients receive a full report of their dog's massage session.  They also receive online access to any video footage taken during the session.

Cold Laser therapy is also now available and can be administered as part of your dog's massage session or as a stand-alone Laser therapy appointment.

Massage therapy and Cold Laser therapy should not replace veterinary treatment but can be complementary to veterinary treatment.
