A spa day for your dog

Dog owners think about the health of their pets, taking into account the impact of the environment and ecology on the condition of the animal, which also experiences stress, especially dogs of decorative breeds.

Therefore, loving owners are increasingly using the services of spa salons, where they perform procedures for pets.

Spa procedures are done in order to maintain the health of the pet’s coat and skin, to improve their psychological state, and to relieve stress. Owners of show pets use spa services for dogs in order to improve the appearance of their pets before the show.

The cosmetic products used for the procedures contain natural ingredients – oils, minerals, salts, clay, mud, ozone, and herbal extracts.

Spa treatments for dogs

Soothing Massage

Dog spas provide a massage service for dogs using vitaminized powders, aromatic oils. This massage has a soothing effect, the powders and cosmetic oils have a beneficial effect on the pet’s coat and skin, and the aromatic oils promote relaxation. The shine and softness of the hair are noticeable after the massage.


It is usually combined with ozone therapy. One can imagine how relaxing hydro-massage is, and dogs especially like it, and besides relaxation the hydro-massage has a general well-being effect because it improves blood circulation and relieves tension.

Ozone therapy

This spa procedure for dogs has not yet gained popularity, but there are many benefits of ozone therapy. Ozone therapy has a soothing, anti-inflammatory, disinfectant effect, promotes wound healing, strengthens the immune system, and improves metabolism. This procedure makes your pet’s hair shiny, soft and dense, and cleanses its skin. Ozone therapy is recommended for pets with folds, such as Shar-Pei, to keep the skin clean and improve its condition.

Mud Baths

Mud baths are recommended for pets with rheumatism and arthritis, because baths with healing mud have a healing effect on the joints, coat and skin of the pet. Clay with seaweed is used for baths. Cosmetic agents are applied by massaging and rinsed off in 15-20 minutes after application.

Mud Wrap

This spa treatment for dogs is designed to maintain healthy skin and coat. It helps to cleanse pores, remove dead skin cells and loose undercoat, and has an anti-inflammatory, soothing effect. The skin becomes smooth, the coat shiny and itchy after the procedure. The idea is to put cosmetic mud on the fur, wrap the animal in cling film and wrap it in a warm towel. After 15 minutes the product should be washed off with shampoo and conditioner.


Pets with white coats tend to darken the area around the mouth and eyes, as well as the paws. Bleaching gives a snow-white coat which is not only clean but also silky, smooth and shiny.

Cleansing mask

A cosmetic scrub is applied to the muzzle, which cleanses, refreshes, moisturizes and soothes the skin. The scrub helps remove unsightly tear lines and darkening of the mouth area. A relaxing head massage can also be performed in conjunction with the mask. The cleansing mask is especially suitable for naked dogs.


Aromatherapy for dogs includes bathing in a warm bath with aromatic salt. A warm bath relaxes the body, relieves stress, and normalizes blood circulation. The pet should rest in the bath for no more than 10 minutes. After the bath, skin and coat get a pleasant odor and shine.

A combination of different treatments can achieve the maximum health-improving effect. After the relaxing baths, masks and massages, the dog needs to rest.


Spa treatments for dogs are useful, but we do not recommend them for pregnant and nursing bitches, animals with skin diseases, animals prone to allergies, and animals after vaccination, if two weeks have not yet passed since the vaccination. Spa is not recommended for dogs with cardiovascular system abnormalities and animals with epilepsy.

Before the warming procedures, you should consult your veterinarian to find out about possible contraindications.
