Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to many of the health and performance problems seen in horses and dogs. Chiropractic DOES NOT replace traditional veterinary medicine and surgery, but provides alternative method of care. Chiropractic adjustments have proven to be invaluable in detecting and testing gait abnormalities and other performance-robbing problems. It has also been shown to alleviate pain in the back and limbs of our animals to help reach optimal performance.
It should be stressed that chiropractic, in no way, should be thought of as a replacement for conventional veterinary medicine, but rather as a valid, concurrent treatment procedure for many back and lameness problems. And, as with any health related problems or conditions that your equine or canine may experience, it is important that the veterinarian be contacted initially so that he/she can access your animal for any underlying medical conditions that could be causing similar symptoms.
