Would Your Cat Benefit From Chiropractic Treatment?

Taken in part from Martin Zucker’s book The Veterinarians’ Guide To Natural Remedies For Cats.

How to tell if your cat could benefit from chiropractic  treatment

  • If you encounter sensitivity when you stroke him or he seems untypically lackluster and low in vitality
  • The head is cocked to one side
  • He is reluctant or unable to raise the head or flex the neck without crying
  • There is sudden behavioral change, particularly after teeth cleaning or other procedures
  • There is shaking of the head or scratching of the face or ear, particularly on one side
  • The mouth is sore when you try to open it
  • The cat seems distressed or acts depressed.
  • The cat walks almost on tiptoes
  • If  he cries out when you lift him with your hands under the chest
  • The cat walks with humped back
  • She cries when she sits
  • The cat sits off to one side

If you are sensitive to your cat you can see pain by looking in his eyes.
