This is a great video made for veterinary practices – reminding them about the layout and setting they should provide for their dog clients.
I particularly like the reference to stress and the effect it has on recovery time. That is one reason why I recommend massage, done by a professional, when a dog is recovering.
Massage will help to reduce the anxiety and aid blood flow and recovery. I also use acupressure to help clear the anesthetic medications from the dog’s body.
