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.
