arthritis in dogs - chiropractor for dogs south shore boston and cape cod mass

Typical area of arthritis is in the hind end. Dogs carry 60 percent of their body wt on the front legs normally, so arthritis will cause a dog to shift the wt distribution and carry even more wt on the front end. This increase wt distrib. will cause neck and shoulder problems. This is not a Vet problem and the usual treatment from your vet will  be meds for pain.

Animal chiropractic will evaluate your dog in a way the vet does not with particular attention to bio-mechanics. If your dog has subluxation in the neck and or shoulder adjustments will correct this and improve movement and decrease pain.
