What Does a Chiropractic Program for Dogs & Cats Involve?
Veterinary chiropractic services are similar to chiropractic care for humans. Our cat and dog chiropractor uses techniques such as motion palpation, range of motion, and high-velocity, low amplitude movements for your pet’s adjustment. Chiropractic evaluation and adjustments can improve and maintain the function of your pet’s body and will help relieve pain and restore mobility.
To form an effective chiropractic program, our pet chiropractor will perform the following:
- An assessment of your pet for areas of restriction and the level of pain these restrictions may be causing
- Pain medication may be recommended if needed
- The adjustment will be performed which involves a quick motion that releases the tension (most pets take this treatment very well)
Many pets experience immediate improvement, yet others will take more time. Sometimes fatigue and lethargy will follow a chiropractic session for 24-48 hours, but this is normal. In order to maintain your pet’s improvements from chiropractic, it is often necessary to undergo routine adjustments. Our cat and dog chiropractor will devise a unique treatment plan according to your pet’s needs.
