DOG CHIRO

Your Dog Is More Than Just A Pet

Here at Healing Hands Chiropractic & Hooves, Paws & Claws Animal Chiropractic, I know your dog is more than just a pet. They are your friend and your family and naturally, you want the best for your pooch but unfortunately, your dog isn’t the best at letting you know when they are in pain. 

If your dog experiences pain with petting, has an abnormal gait, or has difficulty walking they may need a chiropractic adjustment to restore joint movement and allow normal function without pain. I am here to help your dog with these issues because I understand the importance of keeping your pup happy and comfortable.

 

By correcting joint dysfunction your dog's pain will be reduced, behavior, and day-to-day function can improve as well as an abnormal gait can be corrected, 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 pup’s physical stress and pain.

What is Canine
Chiropractic?

Canine chiropractic is a non-surgical, drug-free approach for correcting or managing many musculoskeletal disorders that affect the joints, disc, soft tissues, and nerves, that are biomechanical in nature.

Chiropractic care is not limited to sick or injured dogs. Healthy and athletic canines are ideal candidates for chiropractic care. Maintaining proper structural alignment and motion allows for the optimal function of the muscles, nerves, and tissues that support the joints, resulting in improved mobility, stance, and flexibility. Good alignment improves agility, endurance, and overall performance. Broader benefits include superior immune function, healthier metabolism, and a vibrant nervous system, all facilitating your animal’s natural ability to heal. Chiropractic care can enhance the quality of your pet’s life ensuring active and healthy years.

Senior Care

Aging dogs 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 dogs respond very well to chiropractic care which helps them throughout their golden years!
