Animal therapy - equine massage

Complementary therapy for animals are widely accepted and respected treatments that work alongside and complement traditional veterinary care, to support and bring relief and comfort to animals with a range of conditions, as well as issues related to ageing. Please note that complementary therapy should only be carried out by suitably qualified therapists and used alongside traditional veterinary care and diagnosis, with veterinary consent. Complementary therapy should not be used as an alternative to standard veterinary care.
