Our Services

Background and Experience

  • Journey to Veterinary Chiropractic: Dr. Skyler West’s passion for veterinary chiropractic began a few years ago when he explored chiropractic adjustments for pets. Dr. West, now a licensed chiropractor for animals, has successfully treated small animals, helping them recover from long-term injuries.

Practice Location

  • Independence Animal Hospital: Dr. West offers his chiropractic services for small animals and horses at Independence Animal Hospital, located in Independence, Missouri. He dedicates Thursdays specifically for treating horses but is flexible to accommodate other scheduling needs.

Why Choose Animal Chiropractic?

  • Health Benefits: Animal chiropractic care is essential for maintaining your pet’s nervous system and spinal health. Misalignments can impair the nervous system, causing hidden pain and health issues that pets, due to their nature, often do not show.


  • Regular Care: Since animals naturally hide discomfort, regular chiropractic checks are crucial to ensure they remain pain-free and healthy.

Services and Fees

Small Animals (Dogs, Cats, Ferrets)

  • Initial Exam with Adjustment: $80
  • Follow-Up Visits: $60
  • Additional Services: Available at the vet’s office include nail trims, x-rays, etc., with prices set by the vet.

Scheduling an Appointment

Note: Animal chiropractic is supplemental and does not replace regular veterinary care. In case of an emergency, contact your primary vet immediately. Dr. West works in conjunction with your regular veterinarian to provide the best possible care.
