Check out these specific types of dogs that could benefit from chiropractic care and give us a call if your pup is in need of some TLC. We would love to meet them!
Older dogs respond amazingly well to chiropractic care. By improving joint motion and alignment, we can help ease pain and stiffness from arthritis, as well as, improve overall mobility and quality of life.
Are weekends a time for you to go on hikes, runs and adventures with your pup? If so, they may need a tune-up before these big events. By addressing issues beforehand, we can reduce the risk of injury and soreness.
Like any athlete, a proper range of motion is key to peak performance. We check not only the back but all the joints in each of your dog’s limbs. By making sure every joint is moving properly, we help your dog reach its highest potential.
These dogs are so special and work so hard to assist their humans. They deserve some extra pampering and TLC as a reward. We address tight and sore muscles, restricted joints and overall alignment to make sure these incredible dogs are as happy and healthy as possible.
Moms and Puppies
It’s not an easy feat to deliver a litter of puppies and these mama’s backs and pelvis go through a lot during the process. Careful evaluation of the lumbar spine, pelvis and SI joints is performed to address any issues. We also give the puppies a chiropractic screen to make sure they are in good alignment and no issues presented themselves during the birthing process.
Positioning during surgery can be very tough on your dog’s back and neck. Although veterinarians do their best to keep your dog comfortable, sometimes these issues cannot be avoided. After your dog is healed and has the OK from your vet, it is a good idea to get them evaluated and adjusted. This way they can get back to being their happy, silly selves as quickly as possible.
