    Small Animals/Pets    

Pet owners may sometimes not realize that their four-legged family members are under many stresses which can affect their musculoskeletal health. Here is a list of some of the common causes of the discomfort which our pet patients have experienced (and we have been able to help with):
 

  • stiffness

  • arthritis

  • injuries/trauma/car accidents/falls

  • strains from agility training/showing/sports

  • crating/confinement

  • post-surgical discomfort

 

How can you tell when your pet might be experiencing some discomfort (which chiropractic may be able to relieve or diminish)? Obviously, they can't come right out and tell you in so many words. They can tell you in other ways, however, and observation of the following signs can indicate when there is some distress being experienced:

 

  • unexplained limping

  • problem jumping up/down stairs

  • unable to jump on/off furniture, in/out cars

  • squeal/yelp when touched on back

  • refusal to play

  • does not walk as far as usual

  • difficult grooming

  • change in performance, movement, attitude to work

 

As the owner, we need you to observe the behaviours and mood of your pet, and communicate your concerns and observations with us. Coupled with your input, an effective diagnosis will enable us to develop a course of treatment which is tailored to the specific needs of your pet.

As you might imagine, exercising with your horse, especially if the activity is strenuous or of long duration, can put some significant stress on your horse's spine, as well as other parts of his/her anatomy. Other day to day activities or conditions might also cause your animal to experience some discomfort. 

Here are some of the more common causes for discomfort for your horse are:

 

  • arthritis, wear and tear

  • cold backed

  • injuries

  • jumping

  • long hours in stall

  • poor fitting tack

  • roping, reining, etc.

  • stiffness

  • trailering

  • use of side or draw reins

 

How do you tell when your animal might be experiencing some discomfort (which chiropractic may be able to relieve or diminish)? Obviously, they can't come right out and tell you in so many words, but they are able to tell you in other ways. Observation of the following signs can tell you when your horse is experiencing some discomfort:

 

  • being "off"

  • bucking on mounting/working under saddle

  • change in performance, movement, attitude to work

  • pain or dropping on spinal pressure

  • refusing jumps

  • unexplained limping

 

As the owner, we need you to observe the behaviours and mood of your horse, and communicate your concerns and observations to us. Many problems may be helped with chiropractic adjustments, and the course of treatment will be tailored to the specific needs of your horse or other animal.
