Canine Chiropractic

How Do You Know Your Dog Needs Chiropractic Care?
 
Chiropractic care addresses subluxation.  The symptoms of a subluxation range from very mild to severe. The most common of which is pain. Dogs who are in pain may compensate in gait or posture and often refuse to do certain tasks. The following is a list of symptoms that may indicate the presence of subluxation:

  • Change in the way the animal walks

  • Behavioral changes (i.e. no longer wants to be pet, or gets agitated easily)

  • Doesn't want to do things like jump up onto a bed, or jump down to the floor from the bed

  • Diagnosed conditions, such as degenerative arthritis

  • Muscle imbalance, spasm or atrophy

  • Injuries resulting from falls, training, or other activities

  • Dog is post-surgical

We offer a variety of services for our dog patients and find that diagnostics aren’t always as important as getting your pet healthy and on the right track once again.   Canine Chiropractic is the basis for our wellness plans.  The Central Nervous System controls everything in the body.  We will usually start with a Canine Chiropractic exam and adjustment, branching into other modalities in the more complicated cases.   Referral for drugs and surgery are always the last resort unless necessary.

To be healthy it is essential that the nervous system function properly and free from any interference caused by subluxations. Subluxations can cause interference to the nervous system at any point along the spine where the nerves exit. This can adversely affect the function of various parts of your animal’s body, and ultimately its health.
