When to consider chiropractic medicine for my pet?

Dogs: Chiropractic adjustments help restore proper motion to the joints. A healthy spine allows pets to run, walk, jump and rest comfortably.

How can you tell that your pet has a poor range of spinal movement?

  • He/She may exhibit some of the following signs:
  • Pain when being touched, pet or lifted
  • Reluctance or difficulty when climbing stairs or jumping
  • Difficulty when getting up after lying down
  • Negative changes in attitude or behavior
  • Altered sitting (“Puppy Sitting”)
  • Changes in eating or eliminating
  • Constantly licking or chewing paws
  • Lameness or changes in gait
  • Changes in performance
  • Lying on one side
  • Cats
  • Cats with spinal problems may exhibit some of the following signs:
  • Obvious pain or discomfort (difficulty jumping, reluctance to climb stairs, cries when being picked up)
  • Limping or toe dragging
  • Difficulty getting up or lying down
  • Refuses to play
  • Loss of appetite
  • Unexplained changes in weight
  • Twitching, licking or head jerking when being pet or brushed
  • Diarrhea or changes in litter contents, urinating outside the box
  • Prolonged or repeated vomiting (though eliminating hairballs is normal, continual vomiting is often a sign of infection and can cause dehydration)
  • Discharge from the eyes and/or nose (a common sign of upper respiratory infection)
  • Finally, cats tend to hide if injured or ill. If your cat has suddenly gone into hiding, it’s generally a sign that something is amiss.
