CAT CHIRO

Bringing Out The Best In Your Cat

Here at Healing Hands Chiropractic & Hooves, Paws & Claws Animal Chiropractic, we know your cat is more than just a pet.
They are your friend and your family and naturally, you want the best for them! Unfortunately, your cat isn’t the best at letting you
know when he/she is in pain. 

If your cat experiences pain with petting/being brushed, or has difficulty walking or jumping he/she may need a chiropractic adjustment to restore joint movement and allow normal function without pain. We are here to help your cat with these mobility issues because we understand the importance of keeping your cat happy and comfortable.

 

By correcting joint dysfunction your cat's pain will be reduced, behavior, and day-to-day function can improve preventing any further hip or arthritic problems for the future. The adjustment of the spine, joints, and other affected areas helps to improve function and mobility and can alleviate some of your cat’s physical stress and pain.

What is Cat
Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic Care for cats is a holistic way to improve the health of a feline's joints and spine without the need for surgery or drugs. A chiropractic adjustment works to restore proper alignment of the joint and spine to allow the entire body to function normally. Here at Hoove, Paws & Claws Chiropractic Care, we pinpoint the cause of the illness, effectively removing the symptoms associated with the illness and encouraging the body to promote self-healing.

Senior Care

Aging cats are like aging people and will develop many of the same problems we do. Aging is hard on the joints, muscle strength, nervous system, and much more. Thankfully, older cats respond very well to chiropractic care which helps them throughout their golden years!
