Chiropractic Care – Small Animals & Equine

Chiropractic is an effective treatment for both large and small animals suffering acute or chronic pain caused by biomechanical problems. Chiropractic treatment does not replace traditional veterinary medicine; however, it can provide additional means of diagnosis and treatment options for spinal related problems as well as musculoskeletal disorders. 

Small Animal

Similar to humans, parts of your dog or cat’s body can become restricted or “stuck,” affecting the animal’s quality of movement overall. Whether your pet is a performance animal or your couch companion, a maintenance schedule of chiropractic care can help keep them moving well and prevent injuries. Chiropractic can also enhance the recovery process of some medical conditions including orthopedic post-surgery, arthritis and dysplasia. 

Benefits of chiropractic care:

  • Improve neurologic function
  • Increase in nerve, blood and lymph flow
  • Improve the immune system 
  • Help ease arthritic or age-related issues (hard time sitting or getting up)
  • Improve performance-related problems (not jumping, weaving, gait related issues, bite or TMJ issues) 
  • Restore normal movement patterns
  • Improve the immune system 


Equine chiropractic adjustments are one approach to providing preventative care and pain relief. Like human chiropractic care, equine chiropractic adjustments restore natural movement and function. Stiff or immobile joints can irritate surrounding tissues and nerves resulting in stiffness, pain and poor performance. Our highly skilled equine veterinarians are specially trained in equine chiropractic care, and are ready to help keep your horse in top shape. 

Benefits of equine chiropractic care:

  • Reduce or eliminate lameness or stiffness
  • Address changes in posture or topline
  • Reduce or eliminate discomfort when saddled

If your equine is experiencing any of the above symptoms, please call us to discuss how chiropractic care can help.
