Similar to humans, animals may benefit from chiropractic care. Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation or VOM, is a drug free, non-surgical treatment used to treat and prevent a wide range of conditions, including:
VOM is a non-invasive procedure in which we use a hand-held tool to gently adjust your pet’s spinal and limb joints, helping to restore normal neural signaling and function. VOM provides a very accurate, precise force to a specific areas of the spine. If a subluxation—a misalignment of the spinal cord that can affect the nerve and blood supply to associated muscles and organs--is present, it can detect and reduce it quickly without excessive motion.
At Katy Trail Animal Hospital, VOM may only be administered after an accurate diagnosis of your pet has been made and by one of our properly trained, licensed veterinarians. Our comprehensive evaluation involves a thorough history, physical examination followed by a patient assessment and the formulation of a treatment plan.
If you would like further information about VOM and whether it would help your dog or cat, please call us and book an appointment at your earliest convenience.
