Proper chiropractic care is essential for the health and well being of your cat or dog. Chiropractic care provides more than back pain relief, it plays a critical role in the overall health of your pet. Sometimes your pet needs more than general chiropractic care. Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM) promotes healing and relieves pain for a number of conditions.

VOM is a healing technology that locates areas of the animal’s nervous system that have fallen out of communication with the rest of the body. A VOM appointment allows Dr. Klabunde to give your pet a chiropractic adjustment, identify and treat all nerve root irritations and massage the area to increase blood flow to affected spinal segments, which begins the healing process and relieves pain. This process reduces the likelihood, frequency and severity of recurring pain and injuries and realigns the nervous system.
