One of the benefits of massage for animals mentioned was improved circulation. Better circulation can contribute to improved digestion and better metabolism, a tremendous benefit for the large number of pets suffering from obesity and gastrointestinal disorders. Additionally, improved circulation can slow the degenerative process of arthritis and improve energy levels in geriatric pets. Better circulation means better immune function, helping to reduce the risk of infection or illness and assisting in the rapid recovery from injury or illness. Better blood flow also contributes to improve healing post-surgically.
Trauma, toxins or viruses can also be the cause of cerebellar ataxia in dogs. That part of the brain that controls balance - the cerebellum - is affected by this type of ataxia. In the case of vestibular ataxia it affects the inner ear and the alignment of a dogs body and head. Not standing straight and holding the head at an angle are typical signs. The spinal cord and thus the position of the dogs legs are affected by sensory ataxia. Some signs of this type are the dog crossing its legs when walking or they may walk on the back of their paws.
