Chiropractic Care

There are many conditions when chiropractic care would help your dog. “Puppy sitting” (legs out to one side), a lack of coordination, inability to engage rear quarters, unusual tail rubbing, biting at tail, uneasy posture while standing, discomfort while jumping onto the bed or out of the car, change in agility, stiffness in movement, lameness that seems to move from limb to limb, developement of unusual behavior problems. Check it out with your vet. Chiropractic care may be the answer.

Does your Pet Have:

  • Mobility issues
  • Stiffness in their joints
  • Arthritis
  • Back problems
  • Hesitancy when jumping on furniture
  • Lameness

If you answered yes to any of the above your pet may benefit from chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, holistic approach to improve musculoskeletal problems.


"Our Jack Russell, Zipper, was diagnosed with intervertebral disc disease in her cervical (neck) discs in November of 2016. She would have pain flare-ups that would cause her to flinch and limp that we managed with laser and acupuncture treatments, pain relievers, and muscle relaxers. When Avery Creek offered a seminar on chiropractic care, I attended to see if it was another tool we could use for her.

Dr. Faherty was very informative and even showed me a stretch that could help Zipper. Soon after, I scheduled an appointment and she got an evaluation and her first adjustment. We were sent home with more stretches and exercises and I immediately saw improvement in Zipper's mobility and strength. Since her visits with Dr. Faherty and our adherence to the exercise protocol, she has not had any bad flare-ups of pain. I am thankful that chiropractic care is an option for Zipper. It has definitely helped her and I'm so glad that Avery Creek Pet Hospital has made it available. "
