Have you ever considered chiropractic treatment for your dog, or your cat? If not, it’s something that you should seriously consider, because house pets can suffer from some of the same kinds of physical problems that humans do. You probably have never been aware of this, but some chiropractors are more than happy to treat pets suffering from subluxations, post surgery recovery, stiffness, forelimb lameness, hip dysplasia, repetitive use injuries, neck and back injuries, urinary incontinence, and osteoarthritis. Any or all of these issues can be treated at Wolke Chiropractic and Rehabilitation center, where we provide house pet chiropractic care in North Haledon, NJ.
Signs that your dog or cat may need chiropractic treatment
What to watch for in your house pet
There are actually quite a few indicators which might tell you that your dog or cat requires chiropractic treatment. If you observe any of the following behaviors which you haven’t seen from your house pet before, you should bring your pet in for a consultation:
- neck or back pain
- healing fractures
- dragging the back legs
- walking with a limp
- difficulty with jumping
- pain when pressure is exerted on the animal’s spine
- difficulty turning the head in one direction
- sitting or standing in an abnormal position
- unable to perform activities which used to be easy to accomplish.
Treatment for your dog or cat
What to expect when considering chiropractic care for your pet
Chiropractic treatment for your dog will be much the same as it would be for a human patient. In the initial phase of treatment, a skilled chiropractor will examine your pet thoroughly in an attempt to find out where there might be any spinal subluxations, or misalignments of the spine. Any such misalignments could be causing severe disruption to the nerves and the signals coming from the brain. Once these areas have been identified, gentle manipulations will relieve the pressure on the nerve tissue, and restore proper alignment to the spine.
After this kind of treatment, your pet should begin to return to normal behavior and normal performance. You may not see immediate improvement after just one session, especially if there are severe misalignment which need to be treated. However, generally within just a few sessions you will notice a very obvious improvement in your house pet’s behavior, as well as the ability to walk, run, jump, and do all the normal activities that your pet used to be able to do easily.

When you observe any of the issues listed above, you should contact us at the Wolke Chiropractic & Rehabilitation center, so that we can conduct a thorough examination of your pet to see what might be causing the issue.
