What is a pet chiropractor?
While spinal manipulation has been practiced for hundreds of years in many cultures (including early Greek and Chinese), veterinary chiropractic care is a relatively recent development.
In recent years there has been a demand for this treatment from vets as pet owners discovered that it can treat chronic pain caused by joint disease or neurological disorders.
Veterinarians who practice chiropractic care are trained in animal anatomy and must hold specific certifications.
At River Hills Pet Care Hospital, we offer chiropractic services for cats and dogs and can address any questions you have.
Why use a pet chiropractor?
Spinal issues and musculoskeletal disorders can cause your pet's health to quickly deteriorate. These can severely impact other joints and muscles, along with movement, posture and flexibility.
You might consider asking your veterinarian if your cat or dog could benefit from chiropractic sessions if your pet is displaying these signs or symptoms:
- Pained facial expression
- Change in gait, limping or short stride
- Reluctance to be touched or picked up
- Change in posture, weight shifting or inability to bear weight
