As we all know, massage can help with a variety of ailments. Just like us, our furry counterparts can get sore, knotted muscles too. Pets suffering from arthritis, back problems, and injuries can all benefit from therapeutic massage.

Betty has been our Canine Massage Practitioner since October 2011. She lives with her husband, daughter, and son – Scott, Quinn, and Jack – and their 2 dogs, Jessie a lab mix who is a talker and intensely focused girl, and Gidget a pit bull/hound mix who is a snuggler and massage junkie. Betty’s hobbies include watching baseball, reading, spending time with family, and amateur home decorating thanks to & Pinterest! She has a BS in Biological Sciences and is a licensed (human!) massage therapist also. Betty’s favorite thing about Horseshoe is getting to meet so many amazing people, and getting to help the well-being of the great dogs she is privileged to work with, all in the name of ‘work’. She considers herself very lucky to enjoy what she does!

A letter from Martha, Rawley’s mom:

“Finding Betty and her massage therapy techniques has been a miracle for us. It’s enabled Rawley to stay active, take short walks, and have a pain free life. Betty is able to work out any spasms… and keep Rawley’s structure, muscles, and hips in line. Rawley loves her massage. When I mention we’re going to see Betty, Rawley is standing at the car before I can get my coat on!!! The days following her massage, Rawley acts like she’s 2 rather than 10!!! Our neighbors cannot believe how energetic Rawley is since we’ve been taking her to Betty. Thank goodness we found Betty. It has been life-changing for Rawley. We are so very grateful and thankful to Horseshoe Lake for introducing us to Betty.  Life is Good!!  Love, Martha, Ed, and Rawley”
