Chiropractic is not just for humans. In fact, it can be very beneficial to animals as well! – which is why Dr. Ginette is pleased to offer animal chiropractic services at the clinic and on-location (for horses).
She completed her certification in animal chiropractic in February 2017 at the Veterinary Chiropractic Learning Centre in Ontario and now treats dogs, cats, horses and, on occasion, other animals as well. As an animal lover, she’s thrilled to be working with four-legged clients – and that she can now ensure that ALL members of the family are well adjusted!
The process – and benefits – of chiropractic are very similar for animals as they are for us humans. Dr. Ginette will look for abnormal or restricted movement of the joints of the spine and extremities, and adjust as necessary to restore proper movement, reduce pain, improve mobility, and allow the nervous system and body to function at its maximum healthy potential.
Chiropractic care is tremendously beneficial for healthy and athletic animals, and can also be used to treat animals that are experiencing pain, stiffness, nerve problems, movement issues, or any number of other problems. You can read more about why your pet might visit a Certified Animal Chiropractor in our FAQ section.
It’s important to note that chiropractic care does not replace veterinary care. Dr. Ginette will work in collaboration with your vet and refer you back if she feels necessary.
Animal Chiropractic appointments are currently available on Mondays afternoons, Tuesday mornings and periodic Saturdays. Please contact the clinic for availability.
