We focus so much on our own chiropractic appointments that we don’t think about the benefits that it might have for our animals. But depending on the situation, it really can be — regardless of whether it’s a dog, cat, horse, or even a cow.

Take my daughter, for instance. She has an older cat that was recently having problems jumping up onto their bed and even getting out of the kitty litter box. The cat already has diabetes, but it was clearly having issues with feeling its feet and legs. It had also lost some weight. So, my daughter took her to a chiropractor for animals here in Denton. They began adjusting her once or twice a week, and voila! Now, the cat is walking and moving around better than it has in a long time.

Animals and chiropractic care

I was not the chiropractor who helped adjust my daughter’s cat. You need more training to work on animals, and it’s not something I specialize in just yet. But, I am a big believer that animals need chiropractic care just like we do! Their spine and vertebrae are a lot like ours. They get nerve interference and pain just like we do. And as they get older, these issues can become chronic, are more noticeable, and can affect daily life — just like us.

Rather than giving them pain medication or resorting to more invasive approaches to pet healthcare, consider chiropractic care.

Animal adjustments are a drug-free alternative for such things as:

  • Back, leg, and tail pain
  • Limping
  • Injuries from slips, falls, or accidents
  • Joint, nerve, or muscle problems
  • Seizures or neurological problems

Call us if you’d like a great referral to an animal chiropractor, as there are plenty in the area. And in some cases, your vet may also specialize in chiropractic. The goal is to keep your pet or animal healthy and active without resorting to extreme measures. All we are saying is that it is worth asking about, especially if it will make a difference in your pet’s quality of life.
