Dr. Melissa Shaw

In keeping with our philosophy of treating all dogs and “the whole dog” as if they were our own, K9 Basics is excited & proud to announce our new partnership with Dr. Melissa Shaw of Holmdel, NJ!

Dr. Shaw has been a human chiropractor for the last 14 years. Knowing the benefits humans receive from chiropractic care, Dr. Shaw combined her love of animals with her desire to help them receive the same relief from discomfort and loss of mobility to enter an intensive postgraduate course to become a Certified Animal Chiropractor through the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association. A very unique and special field of expertise, Dr. Shaw provides care that focuses on abnormal movements of the spine, the effects these restrictions have on the nervous system and the entire body of the animal. The goal of chiropractic treatment is to maximize mobility and optimize nervous system function to allow unrestricted exchange of information between the brain and the rest of the body. Dr. Shaw is one of only a handful of Certified Animal Chiropractors in the State of NJ and has been treating dogs and cats successfully, providing relief, comfort and improving their lives. Brian and I can personally attest to her skills due to the marked results we have seen with our five dogs as a result of her care. Dr. Shaw is available every 2 weeks on Tuesdays for chiropractic appointments, onsite at K9 Basics Dog Training, from 10AM to 4PM.
