How do you adjust a cat? VERY QUICKLY!Okay... that's a joke.
Yes, cats can be adjusted! Many of them relax and accept the adjustments quite well.
In my experience, cats respond very deeply to chiropractic care. My cat is a diabetic. When he gets regular adjustments, he become less dependent upon his insulin.
A friend called me when his cat appeared to be near death. The cat was unable to keep food or water down, and had not used the litter box in days. There had been multiple trips to the vet, and all avenues within my friend's financial resources had been exhausted. When I arrived, the cat seemed very weak and his usual vibrance was gone. I adjusted the cat and provided craniosacral therapy. Thirty-six hours later, the cat woke my friend up because he was hungry! The litter box had been freshly used and his food dish was empty.
I have also seen limb pain resolved, and comfort brought to cats that are dealing with end of life issues.For a telephone consultation or to schedule an appointment, please call at 952-484-5460.
