Animal Chiropractic in Ponsonby

Keeping Your Beloved Pet Healthy

Animal Chiropractor PonsonbyCats and dogs can become overwhelmed with stress just as their owners can. There are safe, gentle ways to help your pet be the best they can be. Veterinary care may offer limited options. Animal chiropractic care at The Chiropractice may allow your cat or dog to express their greatest possible capacity for health.

You’re welcome to bring your pet in with you to your visits. Animals respond quickly to care, and we can read their subtle reflexes to understand where areas of a potential problem are located.

How can chiropractic help animals?

Just like in a human, your pet’s body is run by their nervous system. The nerves that exit the spine can be affected by misalignments, or subluxations, in your spine. Correcting the subluxations allows your nervous system to work at its highest capacity. Blood flow, hormone and neurotransmitter levels may improve, making a direct impact on joints, glands, organs and skin.

How do you correct subluxations in animals?

A thorough examination is performed. Light touches with the hands or a gentle instrument to the problem area are utilised to make the proper corrections.

Is there pain involved?

Whether you have a horse, cat, dog or rabbit, all the animals we have seen accept our examination and chiropractic adjustments without signs of pain. If there is an area of discomfort, the gentlest touch is used to make sure your animal is relaxed and at ease.

How long will it take, and what will the costs be?

After a consultation, Dr Todd Keenan (Chiropractor) will set up a care plan that’s appropriate for your pet and their particular issues. Just a few manipulations may be adequate, while others may require periodic checkups to stay well.

But you’re not a veterinarian. How can you manipulate an animal?

Chiropractic care should not be considered a replacement for veterinary care. Instead, it works best in conjunction with these visits. Many area veterinarians refer their pets to us, while we also refer our animal patients to them when needed.

With animal chiropractic care, Todd is not manipulating your dog or cat. Instead, he is correcting the position of joints to affect your pet’s nervous system.
