Exceptional Denver & Boulder Chiropractors at Zandi Chiropractic LLC

Animal Chiropractor

Animal chiropractic is a drug-free alternative to health treatment
that focuses on the nervous system maintenance and wellness of your pet.

People are embracing new ways for their pets to maintain maximum health, thanks to the expanding field of animal chiropractic. You’ve come to the correct place if you’re looking for a Animal Chiropractic in Boulder or Denver.

Many animals build up chronic stress, which leads to injuries and health problems in the future. We often see extremity, spinal, jaw and tail issues with our four legged friends. The joints between vertebrae get jammed when they become immovable due to trauma, injury, or degenerative wear and tear, often harming the nerves in these congested locations. Chiropractic care focuses on the neurological system of the animal, which improves performance by enabling more structure and energy freedom, which promotes better biomechanics, health, and mental clarity. Allowing normal biomechanics to return ensures a higher quality of life for us and our animals.

Animal Chiropractic adjustments are generally well tolerated by pets and are considered safe.

We understand that bringing your injured animal to us isn’t the most efficient way to get medical help. That is why we are willing to travel to your location to care for your pet! We may work with you to develop a timetable tailored to your time defined intervals and distance, Whether you want to schedule a consultation or build a consistent plan for your animal’s long-term health and well-being, we can help.

Canine Chiropractic

Dogs are exceptional athletes who want to engage with and satisfy you. They, like humans, have spines and nerve systems that can become misaligned due to a variety of factors. Chiropractic care therapy is beneficial to dogs of all ages and activity levels. Because birth is the first significant trauma in an animal’s existence, examining the spine as soon as minutes after birth might help prevent the pup from growing and developing around an out-of-whack spine.

Athletes in their prime might benefit from frequent tweaks to maintain peak performance. Whether your dog’s duty is to be your companion around the home, accompany you on hikes or runs, assist you with responsibilities, compete in agility or breed events, and more, all of these activities can cause painful muscles, mental stress, and injuries, slowing down your faithful companion. Adjustments can help them recover faster and get back into the game sooner! Even older companion animals can benefit from chiropractic therapy to help them age healthily, halt degeneration, and stay as comfortable as possible as they age, resulting in a higher quality of life.

If you’re seeing any of the below symptoms in your dog, chiropractic therapy may be beneficial:

  • Difficulty wagging tail
  • Panting at inconvenient times or all night
  • Getting up slowly
  • Doesn’t want to play with you or the animals
  • Dragging toes when walking.
  • Hunched back
  • Stairs become difficult to climb or descend.
  • Reluctance in jumping
  • Limping
  • Difficulty Chewing
  • Pain with shaking their heads

Feline Chiropractic

Cats are incredibly tough animals. If your kitty cat has a problem jumping up on or down from surfaces, it could be due to subluxation in the neck. Their range of motion may be limited, as her head may be slightly twisted.

Chiropractic care can readily correct this. Instrument-assisted chiropractic treatments, such as Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM), are particularly helpful in cats.

Subluxation complexes that start around the ninth thoracic vertebra and extend all the way to the sacrum are common in older cats (14 to 19 years old). This generally limits their activity at a later age. The subluxations that form around T-7-8-9 can disrupt the blood supply to the kidney, causing the animal’s renal function to deteriorate more quickly and shorten their lifetime by 3 to 5 years.

Kidney failure is the most prevalent reason for cats’ death due to “old age” in cats.

Cats who survived to reach 19 to 23 years old, on the other hand, had no vertebral subluxation complex in this location of their backs.

The following signs suggest that your cat might benefit from a chiropractic adjustment:

  • Tenderness or pain
  • Reduced activity
  • Not doing what it used to do
  • Fatigue or lethargy
  • Lameness or uneven gait
  • Avoiding human touch or engagement
  • Changes in behavior, such as despair or hostility
  • Decreased appetite

Because conditions might take time to manifest, you may not notice them if you are around your cat every day.
At least thrice a year, visits to your veterinarian and animal chiropractor are essential for diagnosing abnormalities and preventing significant health issues.

Equine Chiropractic

Horses are incredible athletes who put in a lot of effort to give you precisely what you want. They, like us, have spines and nerve systems that can become misaligned due to a variety of factors. Chiropractic care is beneficial to equine athletes and performance horses of all ages and disciplines.

Because birth is the first significant trauma in an animal’s life, examining the spine as soon as possible after delivery might prevent the foal from growing and developing around a misaligned spine.

Athletes in their prime can benefit from regular tweaks in order to maintain peak performance. Sore muscles, emotional tension, injuries caused by lesson horses, pleasure shows, endurance races, rodeo events, and other activities can slow a horse down.

If you see any of the following symptoms in your horse, chiropractic therapy may be beneficial:

  • Behavioral changes
  • Unable to do things that were formerly routine
  • Shaking of the head
  • Inability to take or maintain a lead
  • Being unable to bend
  • Pain in the back, neck, or ribs
  • Refusing to jump
  • Dragging of toe
  • Unequal distribution of muscle
  • Hunched back
  • Fussy when saddle is being tightened
  • Stiff gait
  • Range of motion deficits
  • Uneven Pelvis when looking from the back
  • Understepping gait

Please call 303-499-0225 to speak with Dr. Sepehr Zandi to see if your pet/animal is a good fit for chiropractic. You can also directly schedule an appointment online if you plan to visit the clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions

Pain, spasm, stiffness, sensitivity to touch, lameness, gait irregularities, postural compromise, and even organ malfunction are among symptoms of subluxation.

Chiropractic care has helped pets with illnesses like arthritis, hip dysplasia, ACL injuries, lameness, chronic health difficulties, and back problems.

Chiropractic is one of the few techniques in veterinary medicine that has instant benefits, which can be evident as soon as minutes after treatment.

Improvements are often regarded as a better gait and a noticeable reduction in pain.

Horses employed in racing, dressage, or pleasure riding, and dogs used in racing, agility training, or field trials, are examples of animal athletes.

Skin flinching is a panniculus reflex, a pain reaction that animals have because they can’t rub the painful area like we can when we stub our toes or bump our shins.

We recommend that owners attend adjustments, particularly the first ones, because they can be very puzzling for the pet.

Chiropractic manipulation is generally safe when administered by an experienced, trained animal chiropractic.

If the modifications are made with the proper force, the pet will require a series of treatments that will gradually restore their health.

A minority of pets may experience a temporary low-grade soreness (lasting 24 to 48 hours) following chiropractic therapy if the force of the adjustment is excessive or the adjustment is administered at a wrong angle, time, or location.

This is the essence of chiropractic care: it may be used in conjunction with a variety of different treatments.
It can help you get better outcomes, help your pet’s body respond better to therapies, and just feel better in general. If you have any concerns regarding other treatments or conditions, please bring it up at your pet’s chiropractic session.

Comprehensive chiropractic treatment involves a thorough history taking and physical examination, followed by the pet assessment and formulation of a treatment plan. It rarely involves a single visit, and costs will vary according to the specific condition being treated and the pet’s response.

Chiropractic is usually very affordable and is certainly a cost-effective way of managing and resolving pain and weakness in your pet.

Doctors can be certified to practice chiropractic on animals in one of two ways. One is a chiropractor who has added animal certification to their credentials and is now a certified animal chiropractor (CAC).
The other is a trained veterinary spinal manipulative therapist who is a veterinarian who has completed the additional animal chiropractic qualification (CVSMT). It’s critical to be sure the animal chiropractor you’re considering has completed the required training and is certified through an AVCA or CoAC-approved school.
