Chiropractic for Animals
Dr. Deborah Ramsey has been a certified animal VOM specialist for 18 years and has treated many dogs and cats with great success. In Massachusetts in order for a chiropractor to provide VOM treatments, you most hold a Massachusetts license to practice chiropractic and also have a referral slip signed by a licensed veterinarian. Dr. Ramsey works with many of the local veterinarians whom refer to her on a regular basis. This working relationship ensures safety for the animals due to the fact that she works more as a “team member”, accepting the advice and guidance that the veterinarians provide. There is an area outside the office with a bench and a covered area for her to provide the services for animals.
Dr. Ramsey treats many conditions that affect animals and most dog owners bring their pets in for lameness conditions which can have a favorable effect on the degree of lameness and help the animal with reducing or eliminating their pain in most cases. Here are some of the conditions that have been helped through VOM treatments:
1. Lower back pain and stiffness
2. Inability to jump in or out of the car,
3. Inability to jump on or off the bed
4. Difficulty in bending down to eat their food or drink their water
5. Difficulty getting up or laying down
6. Allergies- by helping the nervous system work better and allowing the pets to heal
7. Some knee problems
8. Some hip problems
A typical treatment schedule for animals is around 3 treatments and then some maintenance through out the year. With 3 treatments Dr. Ramsey will be able to see if the treatment will be successful and if she is not happy with the results, she will refer back to the veterinarian for further assistance. The amazing teamwork has been a huge success and has helped provide relief for many pets giving pets a better quality of life which ultimately helps their owner too.
