What IS Animal Chiropractic?

Four Paws Animal Chiropractic Logo

Animal Chiropractic is a distinct and separate approach to health care which utilizes the expertise of both the Chiropractor and the Veterinarian. Animal Chiropractic is designed to offer the animal owner a total health care package to provide their animal with the best care available. Animal Chiropractic care does not replace traditional veterinary medicine but creates a symbiotic relationship between the two professions. Animal Chiropractic is a method of health care which uses no drugs or surgery. Animal Chiropractic uses natural methods to restore health. The ultimate goal is to have a healthy, well-adjusted animal who can live a long life and reach their full potential.
