“I am a local veterinarian, and I take my own dog to Dr. Kremer and highly recommend her! She is knowledgeable, confident, and compassionate. I noticed a tremendous improvement in my senior dog’s pain level and mobility after just one visit, and now I am taking him to see her regularly. He is moving around like he is 5 years younger! He even started to get into mischief again like the youngster he once was, so I know he is feeling better! I recommend her without reservation!”

“Dr. Kremer is an incredible chiropractor! She is extremely thorough, intelligent, caring and loves what she does. My dog Penny loves getting adjustments by her and I wouldn’t chose any other chiropractor to adjust her. Highly recommend Dr. Kremer!”

You don’t have to wait for your pet to be in pain before seeking a chiropractic adjustment — All pets can benefit every time an adjustment is administered. Chiropractic for your pet is a smart decision!  

If your pet could talk our language, they would say, “Thanks for taking such great care of me!”

Dr. Kremer is an excellent chiropractor. I am also a chiropractor and understand the importance of proper nervous system function. My dog is 9 years old, and while he has no symptoms, I took him to Dr. Kremer for a wellness checkup. She made some adjustments and even though my dog had no symptoms, his walk was straighter afterward. I thought a shimmy was part of his gait. Chiropractic is important even if you don’t think anything is wrong. Don’t wait until symptoms appear. I know have my 9-year-old dog under monthly maintenance care so he can be as healthy as possible!!! Dr. Kremer is the real deal. I know a lot of chiropractors who claim to be certified in animal adjusting, but Dr. Kremer studied in a rigorous program and took an exam and really does know the anatomy and physiology of animals. I can’t recommend her enough!!!!!

Dr. Amanda Kremer is AMAZING! She genuinely loves animals and cares about my kitty, Elvis. She helped him have better mobility and feel better. He did so well with her and he never does well at the vet’s office. I highly recommend taking all of your fur babies to Dr. Kremer. Chiropractic care can do wonders! Thank you Dr. Kremer for caring so much!

“Dr. Kremer is wonderful! I have a timid dog that doesn’t like to be touched and she went very slowly and worked at my dog’s comfort level. She talked me through the evaluation and treatment and give me ideas on how to help my dog between treatments.
My dog felt several years younger when she was done. It was heartwarming to see her feel so much better. Thank you!”

What kind of pet do you have?

Dr. Kremer understands the physical and mental demands placed on these canine athletes, and is honored  to provide their chiropractic support.  Their owners, handlers and trainers have been consistently pleased with the attention she provides to the specific needs of these dogs and with the outcomes of their care.
Hunting and sporting dogs require special care.  Much like human athletes, active dogs will put heavier amounts of wear and tear on their joints and will require chiropractic care to help their bodies perform at their best and prevent musculoskeletal issues in the future.  A wonderful hunting companion deserves the very best care in between outings. Getting them adjusted regularly is a smart and responsible thing to do for them.
Got a lazy dog?  Or, perhaps your pet is highly active.  Just like people, chiropractic care is still a smart decision for both you and your pet!  Chiropractic adjustments help maintain ideal spinal alignment, preventing pre-mature joint destruction and instantly improving mobility.  Your best friend deserves an adjustment today!

I cannot give enough praise for what Dr. Kremer has done for our 13 year old lab Abby. Abby is running and playing like a much younger dog. Plus she has been going upstairs again after years of not being able to. Abby is happy and pain free!

We were very pleased with the patience and care given at each appointment with our boy, Jake. Dr. Kremer made us all feel comfortable and explained exactly what she was doing during the appointment. Her demeanor was calm and caring and she gave clear instructions for us to perform our, at-home stretches.

Amanda is awesome! We brought our little Bichon-ShihTzu mix to her when he hurt his back jumping off a high bed. We were new to the area and the first vet we saw at an emergency hospital wanted to put him on pain meds for a long period of time.

When we had time to seek out a chiropractor who also worked on animals, we found Amanda’s website. She was gentle, warm and empathetic from our first visit and she did a great job helping our love title guy get better much faster than we expected. We continue to take him to Amanda once a month for a maintenance visit and he is completely like his former doggie self. I would recommend Dr. Kremer to anyone!

3 Phases of Care:

It’s always your choice!

Acute Care

This first phase of care is designed to alleviate the unwanted symptoms your pet is experiencing as fast as possible.  However, it’s important to remember that your pet will likely be feeling better long before they actually are.  If the underlying problem is left untreated, symptoms often return.

Corrective Care

Here, we are dedicated to stabilize the underlying problem thereby optimizing your pets health potential.  Symptoms should be kept under control with appropriate animal chiropractic intervention and stabilization.

Maintenance Care

You’ve obtained more than one oil change on your car right?  Without chiropractic care, your pet’s spine will slowly revert back to the condition it was in at the time of initial symptoms.  Periodic, scheduled chiropractic visits will maintain the benefits of your dedication already achieved, preventing a relapse.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click a box to expand it.

Is it just like human chiropractic?
Animal chiropractic is like human chiropractic in the sense that we target the nervous system to help optimize the body’s ability to heal and support itself.  It is different than human chiropractic in the sense that the animal is generally treated while standing or lying on the floor.  Very rarely are “cracks” or “pops” heard when working with dogs and cats.  The entire process is very gentle and highly effective!  
How long will each visit take?

The initial visit takes about 30 minutes.  Follow-up appointments are 15 minutes long.

What types of animals do you work on?

Dr. Kremer primarily accepts dogs and cats as patients. By special requests, Dr. Kremer may be available to work on horses and other vertebrates such as: alpaca’s, guinea pigs, etc.

How many visits will it take?
Dr. Kremer asks you to consider committing to three visits initially. After three visits, she will generally have a good idea of how much she will be able to do for your companion and will inform you what is recommended. Continuation of care is highly recommended, but completely up to you.
Will it hurt my pet?
Chiropractic adjustments do not cause pain. However, your animal may need work in an area that is already tender. Dr. Kremer knows this and will be extremely gentle. Occasionally, muscular soreness can occur for a short time after a chiropractic visit – much like the soreness that can be experienced after a massage.  It will reside quickly.
Why should I choose Chiro4Critters?

Dr. Amanda Kremer, D.C., the founder of Chiro4Critters is one of only a handful of AVCA certified chiropractors in Portland and Vancouver! She is an actual board certified chiropractor! It should go without saying that a bonafide chiropractor has an advantage when it comes to chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Kremer has over a decade of dedicated experience and exclusively practices on animals. She has proven skills and knowledge. You’re simply in great hands with her helping your pet!

“We have been coming to Dr. Kremer for over a year now, referred to her by our expert conditioning instructor, Maddy Turner. As a rear leg amputee, we are doing everything possible to help John Wayne stay in the best possible condition…and it takes a team of experts, including Dr. Kremer, to insure his fitness and well being stay in peak condition.

From the onset, it was clear that Dr. Kremer is an expert in establishing a loving, trusting, and supportive connection with her canine client…and to say John Wayne adores her, is an understatement! We are always so impressed at how thorough Dr. Kremer examines John Wayne, and helps him feel comfortable as she “tweaks” his back, tail, feet, neck…etc. without anxiety. Clearly, gaining trust and comfort of the dog client is absolutely essential in a successful chiropractic visit…and each and every visit is more and more amazing! Rapport is as important as application of chiropractic techniques, in my opinion. We could not be happier.

John Wayne just earned his K9 Nose Work NW3 Elite title…and to think of us getting to this amazing achievement without the help and love of Dr. Kremer is not possible. Clearly, John Wayne’s movements, turns, and health rely on experts as well as home love. We are proud, and honored to have Dr. Kremer be a huge part of our John Wayne team! Thank you Dr. K!!!”
