What is horse Chiropractic?

Here at Trailblazer Chiropractic, we believe that motion is life. When there is a misalignment in the spine, we call that a vertebral subluxation. We correct the subluxation by hand only. When there is a misalignment, that means there can be a loss of motion in that area of the spine. By making a specific adjustment, we are helping to restore and preserve the neuro-musclo-skeletal system.

Disclaimer:
Chiropractic care for your animal does not replace primary veterinary care when needed.

What To Expect

Efficient Arrivals:

Kindly aim to have your horse ready 5-10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. For a seamless experience, ensure your horse has relieved itself before arriving. If we're headed your way, anticipate a message notifying you of our imminent arrival.

Time Considerations:

Although our appointments are scheduled with precision, unforeseeable factors occasionally arise. We appreciate your understanding, granting us a 15-20 minute grace period for such occurrences. We'll personally reach out if any delays are expected.

Tailored Equine Care:

For equine patients, initial consultations span 45 minutes to an hour, while follow-ups take 15-20 minutes. Please note, we might need your assistance in managing your pet, as an assistant isn't always available. If you're unable, having a handler on standby ensures a smooth experience during house or barn visits.

Pet Comfort First:

Please refrain from sedating your animals. If your pet is nervous or has food allergies, bringing their favorite treat or motivator can alleviate their discomfort.

Barn Call Preparations:

For barn appointments, we request an appropriately level and dry area, preferably shaded. Prior to our arrival, ensure your animal is caught, cleaned of mud, and lightly groomed. Do not use show sheen, fly spray, or hoof oil prior to our arrival. 

Post-Adjustment Care:

Following an adjustment, give your animal a day of rest to fully absorb the benefits of treatment. This recuperation period enhances the effectiveness of our care.

Thank you for entrusting us with your pet's well-being. We look forward to providing them with exceptional chiropractic care.
