Tellington TTouch has been used effectively for all species of domestic dogs and cats, for horses of all breeds and disciplines, for small rodent pets, fish, reptiles, birds and many exotic animals now in captivity. In short, TTouch can be used on all creatures great and small. While the overall well being of your animal can be greatly enhanced by just a few minutes of TTouch daily, remember TTouch is never a replacement for veterinary care.
