Chiropractic for animals is not a new phenomenon!
Although it has been more prominently seen as valuable in recent years, it has been around since the 1920’s. B. J Palmer, the developer and son of the founder of chiropractic, D. D. Palmer, actually issued chiropractic veterinary diplomas.
Whether it is human or animal chiropractic, there is a relationship between the spinal column and the nervous system which in and of itself has a crucial role in maintaining overall health. Horses and dogs (and many other animals) who are adjusted by a chiropractor will find enhanced performance in breeding, training, appearance and agility.
