Whether your furry friend spends most of their time lounging on your couch, or they are always on the move swimming, running and doing other activities, chiropractic care can provide many benefits to their health. South Shore Veterinary Hospital most commonly provides treatment to help fix any abnormalities (e.g. lesions, strains, tightness) in your pet’s musculoskeletal (bones, joints and muscles) system caused by injuries, genetic conditions or other health issues. Please do not hesitate to call us at 902.543.5602 to learn more about our chiropractic services for pets.

Which pets can benefit from chiropractic services?

Veterinarians with expertise in chiropractic treatments can help alleviate the pain and symptoms associated with hip dysplasia in dogs, chronic back/neck pain, as well as urinary and fecal incontinence and other issues with their nervous system. At South Shore, our doctor treats canine, feline and equine patients. Animals who take part in sports such as dressage or racing can also benefit from this. They can see improved performance and a reduced risk of injury as a result of chiropractic care.

How do I know if my pet’s chiropractic treatments are working?

The good thing with this therapy is that the results are almost instant. Shortly after treatment, you may already begin to notice improved movement and reduced pain. As time goes on, you will notice improved flexibility, agility and faster recovery.
