With animal chiropractic care the doctor is not adjusting a horse, but rather the relative position of two bones at a specific joint articulation. All species of animals benefit. Equine, feline, and canine patients benefit most frequently. Zoo animals, exotics, wildlife, and reptiles, all have been adjusted and received chiropractic care. It should be stressed that chiropractic care is not a replacement for conventional veterinary medicine, but rather as a valid, concurrent, complimentary treatment option.
