Welcome! You're here because you love your pet and want to help him or her live a happy, healthy, pain-free life.
Pet lovers seek out chiropractic care for a number of reasons. Many choose chiropractic to help their dog, cat or horse recover from an injury, to increase mobility, reduce arthritis pain and to treat chronic conditions and health problems. People also incorporate chiropractic as part of their pets' wellness routine to keep their animals healthy and prevent injuries.
How do I know if my pet needs chiropractic?
You know your animal better than anyone. A change in behavior or mood is often a symptom that your pet is in pain, and might be caused by a joint that is not moving properly. Sometimes they may also experience changes in appetite.
Chiropractic benefits pets with both acute injuries and chronic conditions. It is also beneficial for injury prevention or to keep your pet healthy and happy, even when there is nothing wrong. Your pet may benefit from chiropractic care if you notice any of the following:
- Your pet has difficulty rising from a lying down position or from sitting to standing
- Your pet has muscle stiffness or weakness
- Shaking /tremors in the limbs or the body
- Mobility and gait abnormalities or limping
- Different posture, i.e. hunched back, sitting on one hip rather than squarely
- Your pet has been injured or there is a decreased performance in athletic ability
- Bowel or bladder control problems
- Changes in behavior, mood, or appetite
- Your veterinarian diagnosed your pet with:
- Neck, back or disc problems
- Soft tissue muscle or ligament injury
- Your pet experiences digestive upsets or Allergies and hot spots
- TMJ problems or issues with chewing or dropping food
- Your pet is sensitive to touch
- Or, you just want to maintain a happy, healthy pet!
Benefits of Animal Chiropractic

"This past Friday, Raven my Golden Retriever became really ill. My wife and I thought he was having either a stroke or a seizure. He could hardly walk. It turned out that he had vestibular disease. There was not much that the veterinarian could do for him except control his vomiting. Dr. Rebecca came out to the house that evening and worked on Raven's neck and back. He was running outside a couple of hours later and still is doing much better. It was awesome. Thank you so much!
