Doggy Chiro Is Coming To A Town Near You


Many pet owners don’t think about chiropractors when their pooch is injured, in pain or becomes ill. It never crosses their mind that a visit to animal chiropractor  can put their pet on the road to recovery much more quickly. People are sometimes surprised to learn that chiropractic can be used on animals. This holistic treatment method is also used for pets because it allows animals to utilize their own healing capabilities. Chiro works by eliminating the root cause of the problem not just the symptoms. If you’re tired of seeing your dog in pain or struggling with loss agility, it may be time to consider doggy chiro.

Dog chiropractic is an alternative approach to treating muscular, joint and skeletal problems common in dogs. This is a great drug-free alternative to healing your dog’s body. Just like a hooman chiropractor that utilises holistic medicine, doggy chiro will take your pet’s entire health into consideration. The principles and practices behind animal chiro are nearly identical to those used with humans. Dog chiropractic is also gaining popularity – similar to human chiro. More and more veterinarians, osteopaths and chiropractors are training to practice this holistic approach to treatment. This is a growing field; you’ll be surprised a doggy chiro is coming to a town near you.

Chiropractic therapy may benefit a dog  that’s experiencing muscle or joint pain as a result of injury or old age. It’s virtually pain free and great alternative to medication or surgery especially for older and weaker dog. This drug-free option offers non-surgical treatment to correct bone, disc and soft-tissue disorders related to improper spinal configuration. Structural alignment permits optimal function of the body resulting in improved movement and flexibility. This therapy is not limited to sick or injured pet, healthy dogs can benefit from chiro examination and care. Your dog may benefit from chiro care if he exhibits one or more of the following:

  • Showing signs of pain
  • Weak legs with no specific site of pain
  • Trouble standing or lying down
  • Decreased appetite
  • Decreased level of activity
  • Abnormal posture
  • Limping, abnormal gait and shorter stride
  • Leg paralysis
  • Muscle spasms
  • Abnormal head shaking
  • Allergies

Chiropractic treatment  could help if you notice any of these signs in your dog. By working with veterinarians, doggy chiros aid in restoring your dog’s health by treating the whole body. Animal chiro is not intended to assume the primary health care of your pet or replace veterinary medicine. Chiropractic for dogs isn’t a substitution for standard vet care.

Consider dog chiropractor if your dog is not responding to medication or other standard treatments.  If your dog is not a candidate for surgery, a doggy chiro can be a huge help. Seek a chiropractor as a first step rather than consulting when all else has failed. Relief from chiropractic adjustments depends on your dog’s nature of condition, injury or ailment. If could take up to five days for your dog’s body to repair after an adjustment. In some cases relief could take anywhere from a few sessions to months of sessions.
