  • Invigorating Techniques for Cat Massage
    Step into the world of invigorating cat massage through our latest video, where we explore the art of pampering our feline friends. Discover the soothing techniques of patting, rubbing, and back hair combing designed to offer relaxation and wellness benefits to your beloved cats. **Body:** Cat massage is not only relaxing but also therapeutic. In previous videos, we have covered techniques like face massages, body massages, and muscle massages aimed at providing relaxation and relieving pain points. These invigorating massages can be a standalone practice or used in conjunction with other massage forms. Watch out for subtle signs from your cat, such as moving closer, rubbing their face against you, or vocalizing their desire for attention, indicating they may benefit from additional invigoration. The skin roll technique gently elevates the skin from underlying tissues, releasing tension in the cutaneous trunci muscle and promoting lymphatic drainage and nerve stimulation along the spinal cord. Patting, whether done with a single or double hand motion along the back to the pelvic region, is often a favorite among cats. Follow it up with a skin ruffle to create a calming effect akin to the whole body shaking. Close the session with a gentle tail lift, providing a soothing conclusion to the massage experience. **Conclusion:** Delve into the world of cat massage to enhance your feline companion's well-being and deepen the bond you share. By incorporating these techniques into your routine, you can create moments of relaxation and connection that benefit both you and your beloved cat. Read more

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "We are so thankful for the care and patience provided by Care Animal Clinic. We had a very shy and fearful foster pup who could not be handled easily. The staff took at least 30 minutes out of her day to sit on the floor and slowly acclimate our pup to her touches. Most other offices I've been to have not been willing to go through the effort to make dogs comfortable like that. I would highly recommend Care Animal Clinic to anyone whether your pup is friendly or if they need a little special help like ours did."
