In general, applying kinesiology tape on dogs is becoming more and more popular, and wonderful results are being achieved. VetkinTape® has been developed by us exclusively for animal skin. This cotton, hypoallergenic, elastic tape supports the muscular system, and the body’s own healing processes and influences the neurological and circulatory systems without restricting freedom of movement.
The tape adheres well to the coat, yet there can be certain causes and situations as a result of which this is not the case. By friction (nibbling the dog, rubbing, rolling etc.) the tape may come off, but sometimes the cause lies deeper. We have found several professional treatment specialists who are prepared to answer the most frequently asked questions for us. Below is an overview of their findings, individual results can and will deviate and/or vary. Hopefully this page will provide more clarity and support in setting up a treatment plan.
To learn the different techniques for animals, we recommend the professional to follow a Medical Taping course.
