Animal Chiropractic


DR Gail Galligan

Animal Chiropractic Adjustment restores the normal nerve and joint function by correcting misalignments. The proper functioning of the back and neck is important for maintaining any animal's health and performance but especially for work animals and horses. 

Like humans, our pets suffer injury and health issues but unfortunately, they cannot share what they are feeling. Animal Chiropractic is a way to get in tune with your pets body and relieve them of the burdens they cannot do themselves. Indeed, many families have shared that other issues with their pets have been relieved or improved with regular chiropractic adjustments.

Adjustments increase range of motion and often bring immediate relief of pain. With the correct alignment of the nerves and bones, the health of the animal’s organs and any hidden issues are also corrected.

Animal Chiropractic is a safe and non invasive therapy that can restore and maintain the optimum health of your animal. Some large and small animal issues that are commonly transformed include:

  • repetitive use injuries
  • misaligned joints 
  • jaw and neck injuries 
  • altered gait 
  • abnormal weight bearing 
  • stiffness
  • back injuries
  • osteoarthritis relief 
  • forelimb lameness

The number of treatments necessary to resolve health problems varies by the situation and what is presenting. It may take a few days for the animal to show improvement but most often it is seen immediately. See our Testimony page.

Our Animal Chiropractic services are similar to our human ones, with regular office visits for diagnosis and treatment. We currently provide care for the following pets:

  • Dogs
  • Cats 
  • Birds
  • Ferrets, Guinea Pigs, Hamsters, etc

*Dr. Gail Galligan is also available for speaking engagements by request. Please contact her for availability.

Dr Gail’s Introduction to the major benefits of Animal Chiropractic Care. As it happens, Animal Chiropractic was the catalyst which began Gail's journey into chiropractic care as far back as 1989. When a close canine companion fell down the steps, injuring hips and amassing internal bleeding, even the vet couldn’t explain the remnants of the accident. After losing mobility in the dog’s rear right leg, Gail finally broke down and took the animal to a chiropractor at a friend’s suggestion. In just two adjustments, the dog quickly regained function and today, Dr. Gail is proud to be able to work with a wide variety of animals as a certified AVCA doctor to help them relieve pain and the stress on the body which they cannot communicate to their human companions.


We look forward to hearing from you
