Animals can benefit from chiropractic as well. It can be difficult for pet owners to know if their fur baby could use care but in general pets suffering from stiffness, arthritis, sports injuries, periods of cage rest or confinement and post-surgical soreness can benefit tremendously.
Your pet may also give you signs that something isn’t right. If your pet is limping inexplicably, avoids previously enjoyable activities, yelps when touched or groomed, avoids going up/down stairs or jumping up/off the furniture or simply seems to have shown a change in mood or behaviour, he or she may benefit from a chiropractic adjustment.
It is important to note that chiropractic is not an alternative to veterinary care, but rather a complement to it. Optimally, the chiropractor and veterinarian can work as a team to provide the most integrative care possible for your pet.
