Animal Chiropractic in Kingston

Years of experience help her better understand the issues that affect the health of your pet.

Animal Chiropractic, also known as Veterinary Chiropractic, combines chiropractic care as practised on humans and and veterinary medicine to form a unique profession that has recognition as a separate branch of healthcare.

How Do I Know Whether My Animal Needs a Chiropractor?

Chiropractic for our four-legged family members aims to optimise their health, posture and performance. Animals that have been injured, suffer from a neurological problem, or have been diagnosed with a trapped nerve can all benefit from chiropractic adjustments. Other indicators of a need for animal chiropractic include significant changes in behaviour (interest in food, playfulness, sensitivity when groomed etc.), lameness issues, evidence of back and pelvic problems, neck and shoulder problems, lack of flexibility or muscle asymmetry. Click here for a list of additional signs and symptoms.

Animal Chiropractic at Irrefutable Health

Kingston chiropractor, Dr Gale Zappacosta, began working with animals over 30 years ago in Canada and is a member of  of both the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association (IVCA) and British Veterinarian Chiropractic Association (BVCA).

Understanding the personality and habits of the animal in question is a key aspect of treatment, so your appointment will begin with a discussion and visual observation of your pet, progressing to a physical examination and required adjustments.

Your first visit could span from 20 to 120 minutes, depending on the nature and approachability of your animal. Dog and other small animal chiropractic appointments can be arranged at our Kingston clinic, but equine chiropractic care will be delivered in the horse’s normal environment.

 

How can you tell if your horse or dog is in pain or just reluctant or misbehaving? Book an appointment today to be sure!

Animal chiropractic does not replace traditional veterinary medicine but provides a complimentary system of care. Before the initial appointment please contact your Veterinarian to ensure they are happy for your horse, dog or other small animal to receive chiropractic care. No treatment can be undertaken without this consent from the animal’s primary carer – your vet.
