We have a new article up from a guest contributor – Grace Gano-Martinez of Aloha for Pets. (Read her bio here.) She specializes in pet massage and other alternative therapies for pets.
Massage has been around for centuries, but only recently has it begun to get serious attention from the veterinary and animal care community. Animals respond to physical touch in many positive ways, just as humans do. We’re only now starting to research and understand the full extent of the benefits animals receive from massage.
Grace has been studying and performing massage for nearly 10 years, and her experience gives her great insight into the huge benefits of her craft. We appreciate her contribution to the site. (Click here to read the full article.)
