Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of animals do you treat?
Dr. Bradshaw can treat ANY animal that contains a vertebrae. For example she treats birds, dogs, cats, lizards, snakes, horses etc. Just ask our front desk for more information!
Will I see immediate results after the first visit?
Not all the time. Depends on your pets case. For instance a regular chiropractic check up your pet will absolutely an increase in range of motion but for the full treatment we do notice about 1-2 days after the treatment is the full effect.
How does animal chiropractic work?
There is not much difference between animal chiro and human chiro other than the fur and size of their bones. Anything we do to humans we can do the same for animals. Dr. Bradshaw makes adjustments to your pet as needed as well as working their soft tissue muscles to keep the playing from day to day without any pain!
How does Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) work on my pet?
Dr. Bradshaw uses a technique that allows her to test your pets organs to see which ones are operating optimally and which ones are not. For the ones not operating optimally Dr. Bradshaw can tell you which wholefood supplements your pet will need to help getting his/her organs back to working the way they should.
How many treatments are recommended for my pet?
Your pets first visit is a full head to toe exam where Dr. Bradshaw will check for range of motion, any panniculus reflexes (pain response) down the spine of your pet with an overall check up at the end. Every pet responds differently to treatment.
Are there any payment plans available?
Yes, Agape Health believes that your pet deserves to get the medical care that they need without the stress of breaking the bank. We offer payments plans for those who have financial difficulties that hold you back from bringing your pet in. Ask our front desk for more information.
How much will it cost for the initial exam?
The initial exam is $125. Treatments after the first exam are $75.
Why isn’t my pet feeling better after the first treatment?
It will require at least 24 hours for your pets immune system adjust from the treatment due to the animal’s body acclimating to the treatment.
Why does my dog’s skin flinch when I pet him/her on the back?
Skin flinching is what we call a panniculus reflex which is a pain response animals have since they can’t rub the area of pain like we do when we stub our toe or bump our shins.
The breed of dog I have is known for its hip dysplasia but I can tell he/she is in pain, what can I do?
Dr. Bradshaw’s techniques and tools that she uses enhances their quality of life even if it is a common issue in that breed she can make that issue less painful.
