What's involved in a consultation?

I'll ask you about your dog's history and lifestyle, including their diet, exercise, environment and medical history. It's important that you let me know everything you can about your dog and their history, as this can affect the treatment and its outcomes.

 

How long will the consultation take?

The total time of the consultation can vary, from 40 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the size of your dog and whether they're a bit nervous during the first massage.

Some dogs can be quite nervous, especially if they haven't had a massage before. It's important not to 'force' a dog to have a massage, so if a dog is too nervous I'll sit near or with them and wait until they're more comfortable before I begin the treatment.

Sometimes an animal may have a lower tolerance for massage so the first treatment may be a little shorter.

 

I have a large dog - is that a 'small animal'?

Yes. I treat all dogs.

 

How much does it cost?

Each consultation is $80 (cash only please). A consultation covers all services.
