Equus & Paws offers canine massage
Elizabeth McNeily loves animals. They are her passion. Having grown up on an East Coast farm, animals are 2nd nature, and it shows in her work helping injured horses and dogs recover with massage.
Professionally trained, extremely knowledgeable and willing to make house calls, Elizabeth McNeily is not your average groomer - though she will happily trim, clip, shave, shampoo and even help socialize your four legged friend - she also gives great focus to massage. With benefits like enhanced respiratory functions, increased muscle health and lymph flow this often over-looked niche is growing in popularity. In fact, if massage therapy is used pre and post op, it helps keep your animal calm which helps circulation and in turn aids in bringing the animal in and out of anesthesia. Not to say that massage benefits are limited to the injured - just like us humans, athletic dogs, senior dogs or extremely active dogs will also benefit and appreciate the healing power of regular massage.
Equus and Paws, LLC carries a selection of durable, fun and eco-friendly pet toys made in Montana by West Paw Design. The Bozeman-based company also provides the custom-designed beds used by Equus and Paws for canine massage therapy.

Do you wonder if adding another pet to your family will result in a house that’s full of the hair shed by your four-legged friend?
