Chiropractic Care for Pets
“Healing Tails strongly believes in developing a partnership with proactive pet parents who are committed to naturally supporting their pet’s health conditions or injuries without the use of continuous medications or surgery.”
Conditions Which Benefit from Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic adjustments are great to incorporate into your pet’s wellness program as a preventative care plan; adjustments are especially important for dogs and cats suffering from medical conditions such as:
Post surgical patients (TPLO/CCL repair, hip surgery, etc.)
Signs of Pain in Pets
Sometimes our pets are obviously in pain and will cry, but more often than not we have to be more tuned in to recognize their signs of pain. Being able to recognize the signs of pain will help you seek treatment and bring relief to your pet as soon as possible. Subtle signs of pain in pets might include:
Yelping when being touched, petted or lifted
Changes in the way they walk or sit
Trouble standing up
Difficulty with stairs
Trouble jumping up onto the couch/bed
How Chiropractic Care Works
Chiropractic care focuses on the health of your pet’s nervous system. A healthy nervous system is important because the nervous system ultimately controls everything in your pet’s body, including organ function and movement. The spine is a complex system of the bones (vertebrae), ligaments, muscles and nerves which branch off of the spine and provide input to the organs and muscles of the body. Chiropractic care helps to ensure that the spine and all of the associated components are moving appropriately and communicating effectively with the rest of the body, resulting in improved health, reduced pain and prevention of injuries.
During your appointment, we will discuss what to expect specifically for your pet. Many pets feel better 24-72 hours after their adjustment. Typically we like to see patients back for a recheck 7-10 days after their initial adjustment. The frequency of treatments thereafter depends on the age of the pet, their activity level, the nature of the injury or other medical conditions the pet may have.
