Animal Chiropractic



As it happens, Animal Chiropractic was the catalyst which began Gail Galligan’s journey into chiropractic care as far back as 1989. When a close canine companion fell down the steps, injuring hips and amassing internal bleeding, even the vet couldn’t explain the remnants of the accident. After losing mobility in the dog’s rear right leg, Galligan finally broke down and took the animal to a chiropractor at a friend’s suggestion. In just two adjustments, the dog quickly regained function and today, Dr. Gail is proud to be able to work with a wide variety of animals as a certified AVCA doctor to help them relieve pain and stress they cannot communicate to their human companions.

Like humans, our pets suffer injury and health issues but unfortunately, they cannot share what they are feeling. Animal Chiropractic is a way to get in tune with your pets body and relieve them of the burdens they cannot relieve themselves of. Indeed, many families have shared that other issues with their pets have been relieved or improved with regular chiropractic adjustments.

Our Animal Chiropractic services are similar to our human ones, with regular office visits for diagnosis and treatment. We currently provide care for the following pets:

  • Horses (We’ll meet you at the barn!)
  • Dogs and cats of all sizes and breeds
  • Birds
  • Ferrets, Guinea Pigs, Hamsters, etc

Gail Galligan is also available for speaking engagements by request. Please contact her for availability.
