Dogs and Chiropractic
If you love your furry friends as much as we do, then you’d do anything to make sure they were as happy and healthy as possible. You go and get adjusted for pain treatment and for optimal health and well-being, so why not take your pup in too! But how do you know WHEN they need their spines checked?
Dogs have spines too (well, every vertebrate does by definition), and just like us those vertebrae can misalign due to the various stressors they experience. Your dog may have taken a spill, played too hard, or maybe they were kept in a cramped crate or had a very tight and restrcitive collar before they came to you.
There are numerous reasons why your pet may have a bone out of place, and that can have the same negative effect on their health that it does in us humans.
So if you notice that your pet is wincing, limping, maybe they favor one side more than the other, they have a change of demeanor, they don’t get up in the car or on the couch like they used to, etc. It might be time to take them in to see a qualified animal chiropractor.
