Frequently Asked Questions
What is dog chiropractic?
Dog chiropractic is a holistic, non-invasive approach to treating a number of joint, muscular, neurological and skeletal conditions that occur in dogs as a result of activity, injury, breed, trauma, birth trauma and lifestyle. Animal chiropractic follows similar principles to human chiropractic, and will consist of a light touch manual manipulation of the spine, neck, joints, and other affected areas. This will relieve pain and injury by restoring the proper biomechanics and nervous system communication.

How will I know if my dog’s health is improving? When will I see results?
Many times we see a visible improvement in your dog’s health in just one visit, while other dogs may need a series of adjustments to see results. In either case, it’s safe to say that nearly all dogs will benefit from an adjustment, whether through overall wellness or healing a specific condition.
How many visits are required?
A majority of dogs see a large improvement in one to three visits, however the number of visits suggested will vary depending on case, response and severity. Overall, we see that dogs respond very quickly to chiropractic adjustments.
How much does it cost?
$70 per visit or pre-paid packages are available at a discounted rate. A chiropractic adjustment costs less than a typical bag of dog food, and this will likely be your smallest animal care expense.
