D.O.C. means Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Paul earned his Doctorate in Chiropractic at Life University in Georgia and has been specializing in Animal Chiropractic since 2005. His passion is in helping dogs and cats with musculoskeletal conditions and improving overall wellness.
We will treat all members of the family! From puppy to senior and across all breeds we're here for examination, treatment and ongoing health & wellness for your animal.
Chiropractic works on the premise that an animal's spine that is out of balance will affect the communication of the nervous system from brain to body.
When the physical body is out of balance it affects the mental body as well. When we as humans have physical discomfort does it not affect our mood? Many of our clients once their bodies work better they feel better and do well with some routine maintenance.
