What is Veterinary Chiropractic Care?

Veterinary chiropractic care, also known as Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy (VSMT), focuses on the relationship between the neuro-musculoskeletal system and your pet’s overall well-being. This non-surgical, drug-free approach addresses various conditions affecting the spine and its movement. It offers a gentle, effective method for relieving discomfort and improving mobility in pets experiencing:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Hip dysplasia-related pain
  • Intervertebral disc disease (slipped disc)
  • Unexplained lameness
  • Leg weakness
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Sports injuries
  • Neurological issues
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Lick granulomas

The Benefits of Chiropractic Vet Care for All Pets

Chiropractic vet care offers versatile benefits for pets with specific health conditions and those who are generally healthy. Pets at high risk for mobility issues, such as Dachshunds and Bulldog breeds, can benefit from regular adjustments to maintain their mobility and reduce the risk of injury. Regular chiropractic sessions help maintain optimal structural alignment, which can enhance your pet’s metabolism and immune function. While chiropractic care is highly beneficial, it complements rather than replaces traditional veterinary medicine.

What to Expect During Your Visit

During your first visit, Dr. Kat Hall will physically examine your pet and palpate to identify joints that lack normal mobility, mostly along the spine and vertebral column. Based on the exam, palpation, and your pet’s health history, she will determine which joints need to be adjusted. For maintenance, pets typically need adjustments every one to four months, but in some cases, weekly adjustments may be necessary.
