What causes chiropractic problems in dogs?
Joint dysfunction can be caused by a variety of factors in canines. Many dogs (especially pets) are not working in the ways that they were originally bred to work. This means that the long periods of inactivity followed by bursts of vigorous exercise can cause injuries, along with poorly fitting collars, harnesses and leads. Sports such as agility or fly ball and the occupational hazards that working dogs such as police dogs experience can also contribute to musculoskeletal issues.
What types of dogs can be treated with canine chiropractic care?
This form of animal health care is suitable for all types of dogs including:
- Agility dogs
- Show dogs
- Guide dogs
