Natural Solution for Paralyzed Dogs

One moment your dog is running blissfully through the yard – then suddenly, without warning, he begins dragging his hind legs.  A paralyzed dog is a terrifying ordeal for pet owners that typically results in a visit to the closest emergency vet.  After a set of x-rays, your vet will recommend steroids, pain killers, muscle relaxants, or surgery depending on the severity of the disc problem in your dog’s back.  Three of the options tend to hide the problem rather than addressing it.  The other one, surgery, is an expensive and invasive procedure – that is unfortunately sometimes necessary.  However, for cases where surgery isn’t required (the majority), are there any other options for your pet?

In the human world, chiropractic is known for helping treat back and neck problems conservatively.  Did you know it is also effective for treating an under-served population, your pets?  At Advanced Animal Chiropractic, we provide IVCA board certified chiropractic care for your fur family.

Are there differences between human and animal chiropractic?

There are numerous differences between animal chiropractic and “human chiropractic.”  Some of these differences include:

  • There is no twisting or popping.  This is often a point of concern for many people trying chiropractic for the first time.  Don’t worry, your pet won’t experience any from a certified animal chiropractor.
  • It is so gentle it is almost underwhelming.
  • Animals respond much quicker. There is no need for care plans that last months on end.  We typically know within 3 visits whether or not an animal will benefit.

Animal chiropractors are specifically trained to work with your pets and certified via the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association or the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association.  To complete the program, you must be a licensed veterinarian or chiropractor.
