Animal chiropractic care is a new and rapidly growing health field. However, because of being relatively new, most people are unsure as to when chiropractic is appropriate for their pet.

Chiropractic care is recommended for all pets. Proper spinal column function allows the body to work more effectively and stay healthy.
