Cat Specific Chiropractic Care in FL
A cat specific chiropractic care provider in FL offers evaluations, adjustments, and cold laser therapy for your cat's health and movement. We use this information to develop a personalized treatment plan for your cat.
Our goal is to help your cat overcome injuries, relieve pain and tension in the muscles and joints, increase mobility, and restore proper alignment of the spine.
Based on examination findings, a complete care plan will be created. After the initial adjustment, follow-up appointments will be scheduled, usually within a week of the initial treatment, and then further apart as any specific problems begin to resolve.
A typical visit is between 20 and 60 minutes.
Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM™)
VOM™ is similar to chiropractic care and offers effective solutions.
Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM™) can help animals with chronic conditions like back pain, lameness, or arthritis. VOM is similar to chiropractic care and offers solutions for visible improvement in an animal's overall health and well-being.
VOM™ is an innovative technology that restores communication between the animal's brain and body, which triggers a natural healing response. The treatment involves specific points on their anatomy to realign structures beneath them back into normal alignment. If you need a better understanding of VOM, here is a website link.
Cold Laser Therapy For Your Cat
Cold laser therapy is an alternative treatment that many people are turning to for their cats. The use of this procedure has been shown to reduce pain, and inflammation as well as promote healing in your cat's body.
Using Class 3 lasers with each treatment, Dr. Carswell can quickly deliver a high dose of energy into the animal's tissues without harming them or causing any pain.
Cold Laser Therapy can help with:
- Surgical wound healing
- Improving nerve function and nerve regeneration
- Releasing painful trigger points
- Speed the healing of infections

You can fill out the form on this page, email us or call us, although we recommend filling out the form or emailing us. This is because Dr. Carswell is usually treating patients and may be unable to answer the phone immediately.
We offer cold laser therapy, veterinary orthopedic manipulation (VOM), as well as evaluations for all types of animals.
The better question is, what can’t we work on? The answer is: not much. Severe traumas need emergency services, but once cleared we can work around the areas until they are healed enough to be worked on directly. Bone tumors cannot directly be worked on but they can be worked around if we think it will help quality of life. Open wounds, surgical incisions etc. need to heal first. Pre and post surgical cases respond great, and are usually up and about quicker than without the work!
Dr. Carswell is not a veterinarian, nor does she practice veterinary medicine. She is a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC), certified in the VOM™ healing technologies. Dr. Carswell works with your veterinarian to develop a plan tailored specifically for your animal. Dr. Carswell also specializes in many other holistic modalities such as nutrition, muscle work, and acupressure.
