Animal Chiropractic

Has your pet suffered from neck, back or leg pain? Does your pet have difficulty chewing food or playing with tug toys? Chiropractic can make a difference. Following a visit with your vet, taking your pet to see an American Veterinary Chiropractic Association doctor is a good next step. Chiropractic can help with problems associated with the spine and joints. By gently moving the spinal segments and affected joints, your pet will recover faster from an injury. Cold healing laser is also beneficial following a chiropractic adjustment. Keep chiropractic in mind when your pet is not performing to his potential.

Dr. Becky Hartle, (DC) AVCA certified, practices in Springboro and is available for office or home visits.

My BabyDog..the sweetest little baby…a 10 lb. Toy Poodle. One morning I woke up to find her in a great deal of pain and she could not walk. She was crying the pain was so bad and I immediately rushed her to our vet. After a quick exam the vet told me she had slipped a disc in her lower back, a common small dog problem. There was no fix except to try a $3,000 surgery that had a 50/50 chance of moderate success or to put he down. The vet told me her nerves were pinched and she was suffering, his recommendation was to put her down. My baby was only 2 years old and I was not ready to give up so easy. After some pain meds I took her directly to Dr. Rebecca. I had seen pictures in her office where she had treated the animals at the local zoo, so I figured she might be able to help my BabyDog.

Dr. Rebecca was so kind and patient with this little baby. She adjusted her so gently and then used laser therapy. We followed her treatment plan and continued with the adjustments, laser therapy and lots of rest.

Well to the surprise of the vet BabyDog made a complete recovery. She was a happy, healthy girl who lived to be 14 years old…12 more than the vet gave me. I am so glad I followed my heart and took my baby to Dr. Rebecca.

Thank you Springboro Chiropractic and Dr. Rebecca Hartle for this gift…
