K9 Chiro: Information for the Performance Dog and the Pampered Pet
Pets have become increasingly closer to us in the 21st Century. They are no longer pieces of equipment to be used to transport goods or gather livestock. Although some animals are still used for that purpose, in the United States, we’re finding intrinsic value in our relationship with them.
Dog sports have blossomed in the last few years because they foster better relationships with our dogs. Agility, flyball, drafting, disc dogs, Earthdogs, tracking, obedience and confirmation all help increase our understanding of our pets, as well as helping us share a sense of fun with them.
This shift in our view of pets leads us to care for them more meticulously. We’re buying high quality food, doing more training, buying more toys, and giving them better health care. Chiropractic is part of that movement to improve the health and well being of our pets, especially performance dogs.
Comprehensive care, one convenient location
We believe in treating every patient as if they were our own pet, and giving them the same loving attention and care. We are a group of highly trained, experienced animal lovers who are devoted to giving our patients the best care possible.
