FAQs

Anything from 40-60 mins, depending on how long it takes for a dog to settle. If I am finished in 40 mins I spend time doing energy work or stretching exercises with your dog.

Absolutely not, it is a results driven treatment. If treatments are successful you should see a difference in your dog in 1-3 sessions.

A muscular health check takes approx 15 mins. During this time I will palpate muscles, checking for panniculus responses and feeling the texture in muscle tissue. I will also check for joint and muscle inflammation.

I also have the opportunity to ask the owner questions about the dogs daily living activities and can offer advice on how their lives can be possibly improved.

Massage can help with conditions including:

ORTHOPEDIC

  • Arthritis
  • Hip/Elbow Dysplasia
  • Spondylosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Luxating Patella SOFT TISSUE
  • Hypertonicity
  • Lameness/Limping
  • Myofascial pain
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Sprains
  • Strains

OTHER

  • Neurological problems
  • Canine Degenerative Rediculo Myopathy
  • Ageing
  • Disabled
  • Anxiety

I advise that after your dog has had a massage that they have 2 days strict rest. This is because the dog can experience a Herxheimer Reaction- commonly known as a healing crisis.

Some symptoms of a Healing Crisis can include:

  • Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)
  • Lethargic
  • Thirst
  • Increased urination
  • Vomiting (rare) Even if your dog appears fine after it’s treatment you should still adhere to the 2 days rest regardless. After the 2 days rest you should start to see an improvement in your dog.

 It could be a number of different things, if the dogs back is twitching it could be Myofascial pain or trigger points. It could also possibly be a back strain.

 

Their back should be checked for inflammation (heat). It is always best to check this out with your vet to rule out anything else

 It could possibly be arthritic changes on inflammation in the tarsal or carpal joints.

Dogs tend to lick or chew areas which are painful.

Ledley has arthritis in his elbow and hips, he’s only been in 3 times and there’s already been an improvement, he absolutely loves going too Judith is really good with him! I’d definitely recommend taking your dog here, it’s well worth the money and I could see a difference even from the first visit. Thanks so much!

There is a visible improvement in our dog after he visits Jude. He wasn't getting one of his paws down properly yesterday and we said, "he'll be fine after he sees Jude".

Heather Pollock

I brought my dog Storm to see Jude as she is getting stiff in her old age. Since starting her treatment her mobility has really improved & she loves her massages.
Jude is lovely and really good with her.
I would recommend this therapy to anyone with older fur babies 🐶😊

Pat Reid

I have been taking alfie to see Jude for a few months now, after he recovered from his slipped disc in his neck. Jude has worked wonders on the wee man, Alfie must love it cause he always bounces in the door and assumes the position on the mat ready for his massage. I can't thank Jude enough for her help. Alfie can't wait till his next visit.
