Dogs and Cats

dogs and cats Can chiropractic help my dog or cat?  This is a common question and the answer is yes!  

The brain and spinal cord comprise the central nervous system (CNS) which controls every cell, tissue, organ and system in the body.  The CNS is protected by the skull and the spine. When the spine is not moving or functioning properly, the signals from nerves may be distorted.  Over time, this can lead to loss of mobility, stiffness, degeneration of joints, and pain. Chiropractic works by re-establishing and maintaining the connection between the brain and nervous system allowing improved function to occur.

Here are some signs your dog or cat should be evaluated by a certified animal chiropractor:

  • Refusing to jump up on couch or bed  
  • Difficulty getting up and down  
  • Puppy sitting with rear legs off to one side   
  • Abnormal posture when standing 
  • Evasive Maneuvers: dipping head or hollowing back when touched 
  • Sensitivity to touch

Change in Behavior:  

  • fear biting/hiding 
  • Wringing or tucking tail 
  • Exhibiting pain when taking off or putting on collar or harness 
  • Facial expression of apprehension or pain 
  • difficulty eating/refusing to eat

Some conditions your pet have may also be helped with chiropractic care:

  • limping 
  • disc problems 
  • slip and fall accidents 
  • nerve problems 
  • muscle spasms 
  • allergies 
  • ear infections 
  • coat changes 
  • maintenance of joint and spinal health
