Chiropractic adjustments correct subtle spinal or joint dysfunctions, known as subluxations. Ongoing research continues to prove the effectiveness of chiropractic for both humans and animals.
The house pet, the geriatric animal, the canine athlete, and the service or work animal have individual life styles which define their performance levels and determine their health needs.
Chiropractic for animals is complementary to veterinary care. It does not replace conventional veterinary medicine or surgery.
