From 8 years of age, we recommend blood work done yearly for your pet, to gather baseline information on their health. For a better understanding of the recent research into dog aging and to calculate your dog’s age in human year equivalents, see our Age Calculator.
One of our best tips to get to know your dog is massage! Massage enhances the human-animal bond and provides you time to learn about the normal movements of your dog’s muscles and joints as well as any lumps and bumps. In addition to the physical benefits, massage provides enormous benefits for a pet's psychological well-being. Many studies suggest that massage reduces the production of stress hormones. The result is decreased anxiety in your friend. Check out our online massage course (in Cantonese) and upskill to be your dog’s hero!
