So, how can chiropractic help your pet?

An ideal complement to veterinary care. Owners generally report to us that they have scheduled an animal chiropractic assessment for wellness or when they have noticed a decrease in performance or modified behaviours.

2 Things to Consider

1. Most of our animals have lifestyles that are very different from what nature intended them to be (smaller yards & fields, car rides, equipment worn etc.).

2. Just like humans, animals deal with stressors each and every day (for example: trauma, quality of food, mental stress).

Correct Movement is balanced, smooth and appears effortless. By watching your pet walk, it helps evaluate the need for chiropractic treatment. Although gait abnormalities are often multifactorial, we can help familiarize ourselves with the way your animal moves so that any changes could be noticed quickly and potentially addressed earlier.
