Welcome and thank you for visiting Chiro4Critters! 541-728-3028
I am so fortunate to be an animal chiropractor and able to do what I love. Whether your best friend is a dog, cat, horse, alpaca or any other furry friend, it would be my absolute pleasure to be a part in their health and wellness and be your go-to Animal Chiropractor in Bend, Oregon or the surrounding areas. Like Chiropractic for humans, pets that receive adjustments are simply healthier and suffer less down the road. Don’t we owe it to our pets to give them the best and most pain-free life possible? They give us SO much in return!
I hope this site (and my Facebook page) serves you as a valuable resource. I will be sharing insights and information on the latest developments on natural pet care, pet product reviews, local pet-related events and of course, plenty of information on the growing field of Animal Chiropractic and how it can be an integrative part of your pet’s healthcare. My goal is to educate people on spinal health and other natural healthcare options for their pet, connect other animal-lovers in the community, and build positive relationships with other local pet-related businesses.
Since moving to Bend, Oregon in the Spring of 2012, I have been active in the community, indulging in many of the fun activities Bend, Oregon has to offer. I have had great success building relationships with local vets and I am grateful to have so much support within the professional community — I couldn’t be in a better place! . . . After all, Bend, Oregon is “DogTown USA“.
As many of you may know already know, fitness has always been a big part of my life. I strongly encourage my animal patients to get daily exercise. Just like people, with pets, the type and intensity will vary depending on the condition of the animal. So, I often provide pet-owners with “home care” to do with their pet. Immediately, when I moved here I knew I wanted to be involved with performance dogs. I am fortunate to have been selected to be involved with a local agility club, and have had the opportunity to work on a number of amazing canine athletes!
I’ll be adding and updating new bite-sized articles regularly (see more on the left-side column), so if there are any topics you’d like to chat about, please let me know. I always appreciate your comments and feedback so please join in on the conversation.

In determining a treatment plan for my critter patients, many factors are considered to get the desired results AND keep their spine in good health for years to come. Part of that equation is home care. Home care includes specific exercises, stretches, massage, walks, modifications in home activities and environment, etc.
Getting pet owners to comply with home care is easy . . . for the first week or so. Our lives get busy and we just forget about . . . . what was that exercise Dr. Kremer showed me?
As we all know, each spinal adjustment builds on the next. This also holds true for exercises you do with your pet at home. You can’t expect to improve flexibility by stretching once per month or gain/maintain strength or endurance by exercising once per month. Don’t think of it as a chore, think of it as a lifestyle. Both you and your pet will enjoy this bonding time.
Your pet has one spine, keep it healthy for their entire life.
