Appointments available upon request, in-home animal chiropractic care
Animal chiropractic offers holistic non-surgical, drug-free options for correcting bone, disc, and soft-tissue disorders related to improper spinal alignment and motion. When the animal’s spine losses mobility in certain areas through trauma, injury or degenerative wear and tear, the joints with in the spine can become compressed, affecting the nerves the flow out from these congested areas. The body's nerves are the communication links from these joints to the brain and spinal cord, messages to the rest of the body are then interrupted, leading to pain and loss of function for your animal. Animal Chiropractic focuses on the restoration and preservation of heath by removing communication barriers and restoring normal function.
Chiropractic care is not limited to just injured or sick pets. Healthy and athletic animals are ideal candidates for chiropractic examination and care as well. Maintaining proper structural alignment helps to promote optimal function of the muscles, nerves and tissues supporting the joints, aiding in improved movement, stance and flexibility. Proper alignment promotes increased agility, endurance, and overall performance for your animal. Some other broader benefits of regular chiropractic care for your animal include heightened immune function, healthier metabolism and a strong functioning nervous system, supporting your animal’s natural ability to heal itself.
Chiropractic will enhance the quality of your pet’s life, ensuring active and healthy years. More and more often veterinarians today are working with animal chiropractors, as chiropractors examine the bio-mechanics and the functional nervous system that often go unnoticed by traditional veterinary care. By working in conjunction with veterinarians, animal chiropractors aid in restoring your pet’s optimal health by treating the patient as a whole. Animal Chiropractic is not intended to replace primary health care responsibilities of traditional veterinary medicine, rather complement it.
My dog Ella is recovering from knee surgery, she injured her ACL. She was about 6 weeks into her recovery and she was still walking strangely to protect her knee. After only the first adjustment from Dr. Mizzoni, Ella was already walking better. Dr. Mizzoni's care has helped Ella so much, she is back to her old rambunctious self!

Dr. Mizzoni is compassionate with her treatment. It is immediately obvious this isn't just a job to her- it is a passion. I highly recommend Dr. Sarah Mizzoni for treating dogs as she has worked wonders for my 12 year old lab Gaston.
Being a chiropractor is just a job for some, but for Dr. Mizzoni the healing arts is a life long passion. In 2012, Dr. Mizzoni received her Bachelor’s Degree in Science from Bethany College in West Virginia, and graduated from New York Chiropractic College in 2015 with her doctorate of chiropractic. Throughout the years she has continued her education, receiving certification in additional techniques, such as NIMMO, ConnecTX, and Webster protocol a technique geared toward optimization of pelvic biomechanics throughout pregnancy. Dr. Mizzoni is also certified by the Options for Animals school of animal chiropractic and the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association for the chiropractic treatment of animals. Dr. Mizzoni works with all members of the community (both human and animal) so they can enjoy the highest quality of life. In her free time Dr. Mizzoni enjoys riding horses, kayaking, hiking, cooking and relaxing with her friends and family.
