Canine FAQ’s

How much does a canine session cost?

An initial canine session is $395 (which includes 1 follow-up session). If any additional follow-ups are needed, they would be $195. If we aren’t able to help your pup, there is no charge.

How many sessions will my dog need?

Just like people, it will depend on the type of work that needs to be done. Other factors include whether it’s acute or has been chronic, the age of the pet, and any compensation that may have occurred as a result of the initial pain.

What exactly will you be doing to my dog?

We will be doing the same work on your dog as we have done on people for the last 30 years. It’s myofascial release aimed at the root cause of your dog’s symptoms. We are lengthening the shortened, contracted tissue that is causing your dog to have pain and restriction.

How long does a session last?

Every dog is different, but a good rule of thumb is that you can go run a couple of errands and come back and they should be done! You could also choose to hang out while they’re getting worked on, if you prefer… completely up to you!

You should notice a positive change in demeanor and more range of motion in the areas that were previously short and contracted. They might try to do things, like jumping on the couch or rolling over, that they’d been hesitant to do before.

What should I expect after my pups session?

Your pup may be a little tender for a day or two, similar to how they may have tender spots after receiving their shots at the vet. Also, try not to let your pup run loose without warming up first, as this could cause reinjury to the area that was worked. Just like humans, dogs need to warm up their muscles before they run. Give them a short walk on the leash before letting them do zoomies in the backyard!

Will my dog be in a lot of pain during treatment?

Considering that most dogs have a well-balanced diet and stay properly hydrated, their soft tissue typically releases relatively quickly. What this means is that while they will experience moments of discomfort when we find a contracted muscle, it usually only lasts a matter of seconds before it relaxes.
