Masseuse for a day
Pets love to be pet, but according to the American Kennel Club, there are multiple benefits to stepping up their routine with a massage. Yes, massages aren’t just for human spa days anymore! Giving your pet a good massage can help keep their muscles conditioned, reduce stress and anxiety, promote bonding, and even help identify bumps or growths early. Studies also show petting dogs or cats can lower heart rates, making this activity beneficial for everyone!
