Unlike dogs and horses, cats rarely show signs of lameness (altered gait), making it difficult for cat owners to determine if their cat could benefit from some form of bodywork. Dog owners often seek bodywork for their dogs when they notice that they are having trouble jumping up or down from furniture, are having difficultly standing up after resting, are reluctant to go on walks, cry out when touched or picked up or favor one or more legs while moving. Cats are usually more stoic than dogs, so cat owners need to be aware of other signs of feline body pain and discomfort.
Signs of Feline Body Pain and Discomfort:
These signs listed above can also indicate serious health problems, so it is important to have a veterinarian examine your cat prior to seeking bodywork.

Kinesiology tape can be place on your dog to have a calming effect similar to the "thunder" shirt.
Step one: Cut a piece of tape that is long enough to wrap around your dog's chest and across it's back.
Step two: Tear the paper of the tape in the center and using 50% stretch, lay the tape down in the center of your dog's chest.
Step three: Remove the paper on one side and lay it down with 20-50% stretch as shown in the picture.
Step four: Repeat on the opposite side
Step 5: Cut a second piece of tape that is long enough to wrap around your dog's back
Step 6: Tear the paper in the center and place the center of the tape down with 50% stretch over your dog's lower back
Step 7: Remove the paper on one side and lay it down with 20%-50% stretch doing along your dog's ribs and under torso towards their front arm
Step 8: Repeat on the opposite side
Aromatherapy Relaxation Blend:
Apply 1-2 drops of this blend directly to the kinesiology tape. Always be sure to use high quality essential oils when performing aromatherapy!
