3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Good book! 24 de mayo de 2013

I'm not crazy about the author's writing style. He's a little wordy for me and I found myself skipping over things, because the first several chapters there's tons of details and he talks about himself a lot. That's fine for a biography, but what I was looking for was the something that when straight into how to apply massage to my dog. I don't think everyone is interested into an author's personal story of how or why they got "into it"....meaning their professional field. At least that is my perspective. It would have been fine had he contained it to one short chapter. I have small kids at home and can only squeeze time into reading before I turn out my own light.

This book leaves something to be desired for someone who is truly interested in the anatomy of the dog that goes with canine massage. Also the book is organized in such a way that I found have to flip back and forth too much. I wish the pages went with the sequence of the massage instead of by technique. I ended up purchasing a book by Dr. Furman which looks much better.

I purchased the Kindle version to help my year-old pup. He suffers from dysplasia in both hips as well as two knees that dislocate several times a day. Despite his pain, it's sometimes hard to keep him calm enough to introduce a massage. I suggest starting your massage regime while your dog is asleep at first. I found this helped a lot when we were new at it.

Pay attention to your dog's breathing. Mine will sigh or let out a big exhale which tells me he likes what I'm doing. We all need positive reinforcement!

We've only been at it a couple weeks so I can't advise on whether it is truly helping his pain. I do know that he appreciates the deep muscle massage around the hips, but he's still too tender to exert much pressure. Multiple massages a day is definitely worthwhile - at the very least one in the morning and one at night.

I think some of the massage gives him a burning sensation in the muscle because he sometimes tries to lick or nip himself in a particular spot I'm rubbing. When I see that, I give light vigorous rub to the area (I forget the term the author used for this in the book, but he mentions doing it toward the end). I find that it does help alleviate the burn or discomfort that he sometimes gets during his massage, but I do it a second time in the proper order.

This is definitely a bonding experience for you both.

Two things I wish: 1) I would have found better picture examples helpful in learning where I should be touching; and 2) As much as I LOVE my Kindle, I wish I had purchased the book itself. This is the first reference-type book I have gotten on my Kindle and I find myself having to refer back often (not too easy to do) and have made written notes for myself on what to do when and for how long.

Good luck to all your pups. I hope they are feeling better soon!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas I enjoyed it tremendously also 11 de noviembre de 2014

Compassionate book. It gave me the confidence to massage my dog knowing what everything was that I was touching and how to be sure I wouldn't be hurting him. The very first time I gave him a massage, he absolutely melted with pleasure. He was not alone, I enjoyed it tremendously also. He gets massages often now. I feel the magic of bonding with him across species lines and the thrill of getting to know his body and he to feel my love and caring for him. As I do this with him more, I will better know his body and reactions and be in an ideal position to locate any places he is hurting and how I can best help him heal if he is ill. If you want a strong bond with your dog, this is a great place to learn about doing that. Dr Fox is very compassionate and caring for all animals.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas I Went From Feeling Helpless to Empowered 27 de noviembre de 2004

My beagle suffers from hip dysplasia and arthritis. The medication the vet prescribed helped, but my dog was still in a lot of pain. Out of desperation I decided to check out books on dog message and canine acupressure. The techniques outlined in this book worked miracles. My dog is now able to move with greater ease and with a lot less pain; in fact, at times he has the energy and stamina of a puppy again. I highly recommend this book for any one who can't sit back and watch a loved one suffer. It is a common sense, easy-to-understand approach to canine health.
