Information for Veterinary Professionals

Canine massage can be beneficial in multiple musculoskeletal conditions, and can improve pain control and mobility. As a non-invasive therapy it can work well alongside many conventional treatments.

Wolds Canine Massage is keen to work alongside veterinary practices to optimise outcomes for dogs and their owners.

As per the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966, we will request veterinary consent forms before appointments. If during any massage it is deemed that a Veterinarian should be consulted for investigation / diagnosis then the owner will be informed and this will be detailed in the report to the referring vet.
