Equine Chiropractics

 

With the addition of Dr. Hodge to our team, Russell Equine is proud to offer Certified Equine Chiropractics to our list of services.  The availability of chiropractics as an adjunct to traditional veterinary medicine has resulted in a greater ability to detect and treat gait abnormalities, pain, and lameness.
