veterinary chiropractic

Jana Froeling, D.V.M.
Full Circle Equine Service
40 Judge Rothrock Lane
Amissville, VA 20106

Chiropractic for your four-legged friend! Dr. Froeling's holistic and comprehensive approach to canine, feline and equine wellness is outstanding. Pain, injury and compensation patterns are not as easily detected on most 4-legged creatures due to their incredible ability to compensate. However, years of compensation can lead to chronic pain problems that surface as they age. If your dog/cat/horse has been in an accident, had surgery, been under anesthesia, veterinary chiropractic may be worth looking into. My personal experience with Dr. Froeling confirmed her expertise; my 14+ year old dog would not be moving as well and fast without the treatments he received.
