You don’t always know!

info1The only way to really find out if your animal’s spine is healthy is to have them checked by a certified animal chiropractor.
The animal may display no physical signs, like humans, in many cases we are unaware of underlying problems for example cancer, heart disease, diabetes or simple low back pain, until it’s too late, and the same applies for the animal.
That is why it is important to get ourselves as well as our animals checked, and why it is necessary for the animal to be seen by a veterinarian prior to receiving any chiropractic treatment.

Most of us have regular checks with our dentist, optician and doctor as a means of PREVENTION.
The same applies for our animals. So why do we not have their backs checked when we expect them to not only have a saddle on their backs but also carry our weight and then expect them to jump 3ft, canter sideways, walk backwards, bend through poles, or pull a trap?

It is only inevitable that injuries will occur, and as we all know is not prevention better than cure!
