Getting a License for Pet Massage Therapist
To become an animal masseuse, you will need training. The National Board of Certification for Animal Acupressure & Massage (NBCAAM) provides licensing models and criteria for animal massage and acupressure practitioners. Certification entails successfully passing an exam and paying a fee. However, before you invest in training, make sure to research your state’s rules on who is allowed to practice this type of therapy. Some veterinarians claim that pet massage is an extension of veterinary medicine and should require a license. Whether therapists need one varies by state.

Legal Requirements for a Pet Massage Therapist
In many cases, animal massage falls into a legal gray area, depending on how terms such as veterinary medicine and veterinary practice are defined. Because less than half of the states require licensing for human massage therapists, it is doubtful that more extensive regulation of animal massage will happen anytime soon. Regardless, be sure to check the regulations in your state before planning to start your new business.
