Animal chiropractic differs from traditional allopathic philosophy, which focuses on the treatment of symptoms. As with human allopathic care, animals are treated as a mechanism separating and isolating symptoms from the entire health paradigm of the animal. Chiropractic looks at the whole of the animal and promotes proper bio-mechanics and neurological function to restore the innate healing potential of the animal.
