Chiropractic Care for Animals

It’s not only we humans who require relief from discomfort or a helping hand with health every now and then – animals can benefit from chiropractic care too.

  • Cold backed
  • Stiffness or evasions to certain movements
  • Disobedience when jumping
  • Changes in behaviour
  • Reduced performance
  • Difficulty collecting
  • Difficulty in transitions
  • Strange hair or sweat patterns
  • Tail carriage predominantly one sided
  • Abnormal posture

Typical signs to be aware of in dogs may include:

  • Reluctance to move
  • Abnormal posture
  • Disability to climb stairs or jump onto raised areas
  • Limited performance
  • Signs of pain when performing certain movements or being lifted
  • The animal only lies on one side
  • Altered sitting position (so-called “puppy sitting”)
  • Changes in behavior, frightened or painful facial expression
  • Sensitivity to touch
