Pet Pampering Places

a taste of the unique pet businesses in the valley


Most of us enjoy a good massage every now and then when we get those aches and pains, so why not our furry friends as well? EmBark certainly has an interesting way to go about relieving those pains: canine massages. EmBark’s goal by doing this is to prevent injury, enhance healing, and detect any physical problems in the muscle that may be causing issues or may become an one in the future. Just like with humans, it can help relieve muscle spasms, increases circulation, and helps release tension. Massages for your dog may also stimulate the lymphatic system, which aids animals in fighting off viruses and bacteria. If you are looking for a way take good care of your older dog or performance dog, emBark is a great place to go.
