Agility dogs

Agility dogs are athletes! If you are unfamiliar with agility dogs check out my link to wonder dogs. Many of the owners have seen improvements in times post chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments improve the dogs mobility and joint mechanics thus giving them the advantage over other dogs who do not receive chiropractic care.

These athletes are not receiving care due to an injury but are fine tuning themselves to perform at optimal times and reduce the chances for injury. All the dogs love the care and the owners can usually see a difference in the dog instantly.

Please let me know your experiences with canine chiropractic care.

Animal Chiropractic

Your animal has the ability to heal itself and its nervous system is the master coordinator. If an interference occurs to the nervous system your animal cannot be healthy. The nervous system is centered in the spine where most interference occurs.

The most common interference is call Vertebral Subluxation Complex or VSC. In horses and dogs VSC is caused by many factors such as poor fitting tack, age, rough play between dogs, improper shoeing, post surgical recovery, prolonged confinement, the list goes on. Symptoms are numerous such as lameness, cinch sensitive, difficulty getting up and climbing stairs, tender to the touch back muscles, shaking of the head, abnormal sweat pattern, abnormal gait pattern, and difficulty engaging to name a few.

If your Vet is not trained in animal chiropractic they will not be able to diagnose VSC and usually the animal will get anti-inflam. meds. Have your animal checked periodically by a certified animal chiropractor to keep your animal healthy naturally. The treatment is gentle and most animals react to it like they would to a massage Animal Chiropractic does not take the place of standard Vet care but is an integrative approach in concert with your Vet.
