Why Consider Chiropractic for Your Canine?
 
Chiropractic care is appropriate for the treatment of:
  • Neck, back, leg and tail pain
  • Muscle spasms, nerve problems
  • Disc Problems, joint problems, limping
  • Injuries from slips, falls and accidents
  • Jaw or TMJ problems, difficulty chewing
  • Event or sports injuries
  • Post-surgical care
  • Bowel, bladder and internal disorders
  • Maintenance of joint and spinal health
Chiropractic treatment can solve seemingly unrelated health issues
 
Has Your Pet:
  • Had problems getting up and down?
  • Competed in athletic events?
  • Been anesthetized for surgery?
  • Experienced any reoccurring conditions such as vomiting, respiratory or urinary   infections,  diarrhea or constipation?
  • Had seizures or neurological problems?
  • Had behavioural or mood changes?
  • Had chronic health problems that do not resolve as expected?
If you answered YES to any of these questions then: Chiropractic can help your pet
 
Dr. Fleet's Assessment of Your Dog
 
The initial assessment includes evaluating your pet's prior health state, any history of accidents and intended use (i.e. sporting activities).  The exam includes neurological testing, stance and gait analysis, and static and motion palpation.
 
How Often is Care Required?
 
That depends on how serious the problem is.  In the case of a recent injury or subluxation, a few adjustments may be enough, but follow-up is needed to assure your pet is well.  When long term problems reach the point of noticeable discomfort or outward signs, Dr. Fleet may need to do a series of adjustments.  Of course, regular, preventative care, is always the best approach.
