Dog Massage Tips & Techniques : How to Massage a Dog’s Back Legs


Hi, my name is Mary with expertvillage.com
and this time we’re going to look at the back legs. The thing about the back legs and the
hips of course is that this is where a lot of dogs get injured. This is where a lot of
arthritis happens in older dogs, also hip dysplasia in certain animals. If your dog
has hip dysplasia, please make sure it’s okay with your vet before you try massaging, you
don’t want to hurt your dog. In using the back legs, the very first thing you want to
do is your long slow strokes. Oh, you might see your dog stretch in reaction to doing
that and a lot of times their legs will suddenly do that, the dog will pull away from you but
that’s okay. When he pulls away from you, that’s your signal to start doing the sponge,
in and out again, in and out again and go down to the knee. You want to push this leg
up just a little bit, we will talk more about this later.

    Im sorry, but that dog needs to exercise, he is way to big to be feeling ok, its close to animal abuse allowing a dog to be that fat.
    Sure, massage is good and prly reqal good since hes carrying all that extra weight, but it wont do anything for his health!
