WHAT IS ANIMAL CHIROPRACTIC?
Pet chiropractic adjustment involves controlled thrusts via special instruments or hands to correct vertebral misalignments of animals. The treatment targets joints of the vertebrae and extremities as well as cranial structures. At Stones River Veterinary Hospital, we employ certified chiropractic specialists to maintain the joint and spinal health of your pet so they can continue enjoying life.

WHEN TO BRING IN YOUR PET
Since your cat or dog can’t tell you in words that they need help, it’s important to look for the signs that they may need chiropractic therapy. If you notice your animal experiencing difficulty getting up and down, slow recovery after an operation or injury, seizures or changes in behavior and mood, consider bringing them in to see us. Our chiropractic treatments can speed up the process of their recovery and help them feel better after just one session.
INDIVIDUALIZED TREATMENT PLANS
Before even touching your pet, our experts will perform a neurological exam and take into account his or her prior veterinary history, athleticism and state of general health. After we determine the cause of your animal’s pain, we work closely with you as the pet owner to determine a method of treatment. The treatment plan is tailored to the needs of your cat or dog and will help them get back to full function.
