What Can I Expect?

Most dogs will find adjustments very relaxing. They may jump at the time of their first adjustment.  They may have muscle spasms, but Dr. B will work with your dog to obtain maximum relaxation prior to the adjustment.
Most animals will demonstrate some immediate changes post treatment. However, it may take a couple of days for the animal to experience the full benefits of the adjustments and to see any behavioral and/or physical changes. Please give your dog 1 to 2 days of light activity after an adjustment.
A follow up visit is recommended one to two weeks after the first visit to determine changes and to reassess your pet. Long and short-term recommendations for care can usually be determined at this point. Each patient is unique and requires individual attention for maximum benefits to occur. If at any point you see a return to some old habits in your animal, call and we will schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
