Animal Chiropractic
for Cats, Dogs, Horses (Equines), Rabbits and Other Pets

by Gina McCulloch D.C., IVCA, IEBWA

What is animal Chiropractic for cats, dogs, horses (equines), rabbits and other pets button - grey/white yingyang picture What is it?

Chiropractic for cats, dogs, horses (equines) and other animals is a holistic, manual approach to restoring and maintaining your pet’s good health, soundness and performance. It can also provide natural drugless pain relief for your pet.

Practitioners achieve this by ‘adjusting’ joints with their hands, allowing the body to function properly so it can heal itself.

It is often referred to as an alternative, integrative, complementary, natural and / or holistic medicine for cats, dogs, horses (equines) rabbits and other animals and pets.

How does animal Chiropractic for cats, dogs, horses (equines), rabbits and other pets work button - grey/white yingyang picture  How does it work?

Joints in your pet’s body should move freely, if they get stuck the nervous system can’t function properly, which can cause ‘dis-ease’. As nerves make muscles move and vital organs function, chiropractors focus on the relationship between the nervous system and joints.

Chiropractors call stuck joints ‘fixations’, ‘misalignments’ or ‘subluxations’ and they can often be accompanied by muscle tension, inflammation and pain. These can adversely affect range of motion, performance and your pet’s quality of life.

A chiropractor will identify any stuck joints and ‘adjust’ them. The chiropractic adjustment is quick, gentle and usually done by hand. Most animals (e.g. cats, dogs, horses (equines), rabbits etc.) really seem to enjoy their treatments.

Adjustments affect bones, muscles, ligaments and the nervous system. By restoring correct movement and structure to these, the body can function properly again, naturally healing itself and helping prevent future ‘dis-ease’.
