Animals have a spine and joints as well. Often from trauma, a joint may become stuck preventing them from full recovery or delaying health response. Veterinarian orthopedic research has shown that dogs and cats receiving routine adjustments may live up to 28% longer, and with less health issues. We are glad to work with your vet in any case. We do not charge for animals. This is a gratis service for our patients loved ones and donations to a local animal care organizations are gladly accepted.
