Chiropractic is a neurologically based, holistic approach to animal health care and an alternative healing technique we embrace at Dodgeville Veterinary Service. Our specially trained veterinarian corrects misaligned joints with specific, controlled thrusts by hand aimed at a particular joint. Improperly moving joints not only cause pain and stiffness locally, but also interfere with the functioning of the brain and the rest of the nervous system.
Chiropractic is beneficial for many conditions that befall our pets. Elderly, arthritic pets can experience relief, as do pets suffering from neck, back, and leg pain, muscle spasms, nerve problems, injuries, jaw misalignments, bowel and bladder incontinence, constipation, and disc disease. Animal spinal manipulation (chiropractic) is also important in the maintenance of health and is recommended for puppies to provide them with a healthy start in life.
The animal patient is treated while relaxed and cooperative. Most pets enjoy the experience, and some even fall asleep during the care. All treatments are performed by Dr. Holter and Dr. Wisniewski, who is certified in animal spinal manipulation (chiropractic).
