Pamper Your Pet At A Pet Spa!

Just outside Seattle lies quiet Woodinville, Washington, a small town known for its local wineries and extraordinary landscapes. It’s also home to an exclusive relaxation resort, where patrons can indulge in massages, water therapy, and luxurious skin treatments. There’s just one catch: you have to have a tail.

Welcome to the wonderful, four-legged world of pet spas, where the furriest among us can get pampered to their hearts’ content! If the notion seems a little im-PAW-ssible to grasp, consider this. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, 36.5% of households own dogs – that’s over 69 million canine pals in the United States alone! With numbers like that, it’s no surprise that we’ve found ways to go above and beyond for our wet-nosed loved ones.

So what is a pet spa? At Woodinville’s Paradise Pet Lodge, doggies and kitties (with the help of their owners, of course) can take advantage of numerous health and wellness programs, including relaxation massages designed to alleviate muscle pain and help with anxiety, swimming sessions in a warm saltwater pool, and signature grooming packages. If this all sounds slightly familiar (ahem, like the spa menu at any human resort), you’re right! Turns out what works for people, works for pups!

And much like a People Spa, Dog and Cat Spas also serve the rehabilitative needs of their clients. A therapeutic swim is a fantastic way to help dogs regain movement after surgery, as well as aid those who face chronic pain, arthritis, or any number of physical difficulties. At Cat’s Meow outside San Francisco, kitties can indulge in “Feline Devine,” a soothing experience that includes a signature bath, a heated towel wrap treatment (complete with cat-centric aromatherapy), and a sugar scrub, all designed to calm the nerves of anxious furballs.

Okay, so maybe there’s not a candlelit magazine room and a stack of terrycloth robes (although a carafe of cucumber water isn’t that far of a stretch…). But when it comes to caring for our perky-eared companions who need a little TLC (or are just going through a “ruff” time), pet spas are an amazing resource for man’s best friend. Now if only Rover could master downward-facing dog…
