What is animal chiropractic?

Animal chiropractic is as old as human chiropractic, over 115 years.  All animals have spines subject to stresses that make them apt to misalign or subluxate.  The basic premise of chiropractic care is to correct the vertebral subluxation complex.  Chiropractic maintains that adequate nerve supply is vital to the proper functioning of the entire body.  When the vertebral bones are misaligned, even very slightly, they affect the nerves and the flow of nervous energy.  A chiropractic adjustment aims to correct the subluxation and restore proper functioning of the nervous system. Chiropractic has preventative importance since adjustments eliminate subclinical problems, as well as resolving clinica dysfunction or symptoms. 

Who benefits from Chiropractic care and why should my pet receive it?

Any animal may be misaligned.  We are often responsible by tugging on leashes or tying up our pets.  Subluxations may be invisible but their effects of decreased function, pain, lameness and sub-optimal health are real and recognizable. 

It takes a trained practitioner of animal chiropractic to recognize the presence of subluxations.  Clues that your dog or cat is subluxated may be inablility or reluctance to jump or climb, irritability, particularly when touched in certain areas, bed wetting, chronic ear infections, recurrent illness.
