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 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.

Initial Chiropractic Consaltation
The initial feline visit will consist of a full history and a whole-body assessment of movement, muscle tone, and range of motion with a brief gait check. As well as a post-exam discussion with the owner about exam findings treatment plan, goals, and recommendations if needed.
Acute & Chronic Care
If your cat is experiencing a symptom that is new or has come on in the course of days or weeks a quick stop to us might just be the way to go! The goal of acute care is to manage pain and improve your cat's mobility and spinal function while treating inflammation or dysfunction.
Kittens grow so quickly. As they grow and move they can be prone to developing some minor problems that can have the potential to cause some long-term effects. Chiropractic many of the young puppies will have some minor issues (their spine, ribs, sacroiliac joint) that are treatable!
The subsequent feline appointment consists of a whole-body evaluation of movement, muscle tone, and range of motion. Treatment may consist of manipulation and/or mobilization of the spine and extremities, or soft tissue work, depending on the needs of your cat.
A comprehensive assessment of your cat's joints and gait. Consisting of different maneuvers, and exercises to detect any biomechanical faults.
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!
Great for all ages; an exercise prescription is an amazing tool for improving your cat's health. The right program can help to prevent, treat, and manage a range of health conditions that increasingly impact your cats's quality of life and physical function.
With PAIN-FREE laser treatments, we can accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, eliminate pain and treat an array of conditions such as; open wounds, sprains /strains, back pain, ear infections, gingivitis, hot spots, arthritis, joint/disc disease, tendon injuries & much more!
