Pet Parent Reviews for Dr. Teri Hayward

There is nothing more flattering than a great review. We are excited to see that our practice members are doing well and their parents are happy.

“Dr. Teri is a professional and caring chiropractor. Tito, our senior beagle-mix, has a very long back and has occasional flares of pain and lameness. Tito responds very well under Dr. Teri’s treatment and care. She only recommends required treatment and we now see her every few months for an adjustment. Dr. Teri communicates directly with our vet as well to ensure that Tito is getting the best care. She takes time with her clients to answer questions and make sure everyone is comfortable.”  Becky E.

"Veteran began his journey of healing with Dr. Teri shortly after I adopted him. Vet is a rescue dog who had not been given the opportunity to live a healthy life. When he found his way into my heart, he had been treated very badly both physically and mentally, and was definitively in need of chiropractic health care from someone who was going to work with him and help him to heal. Vet and I found that person when we met Dr. Hayward. She was incredibly kind and gentle with my sweet boy, taking things slowly, always allowing him to take a break when he was feeling overwhelmed, and gently earning his trust so that she could help him heal. The first few appointments took a lot of patience, which Dr. Teri has so much of. She has earned his trust and he is so happy to see her each time we go for a visit. Because the physical abuse he suffered was over a long period of time, so too, is the healing process, so we are not done yet. Thankfully, Vet is doing amazingly well. He is walking and running more freely now, his entire body is starting to move more in line and in all of the directions it should, he is much happier and more comfortable, and I see him joyfully run across a field or walk with me for longer and longer periods of time. He has gone from a dog who always wanted to lay down or sit on one side, to a dog who can stand, go up and down stairs, sit, and lie down whenever he wants on either side or inline, and his overall health has also improved. His life is definitely going to be much longer and healthier as a result of the treatments, love and kindness from Dr. Teri. We continue to visit with Dr. Teri, however, the time in between has increased since Vet has been doing so well. He happily enters the clinic, and even when he gets a little anxious, a kind word, a gentle hand, and a little treat from Dr. Hayward, and he is ready to continue. I have seen a significant and positive change in this sweet old gentleman, much of which I attribute to the kindness and care that Dr. Teri Hayward has given Veteran. We are so lucky to have found someone who cares and is ready and willing to help this sweet old guy find his way to better health and in turn a better life. Thanks Dr. Teri!" -  Sue & Veteran 

“Dr Teri has done amazing things for our little dachshund Bailey. We took Bailey in a few months ago when she was experiencing symptoms of pain and decreased mobility. After a few vet visits, sedatives, pain meds and x-rays we were faced with a discouraging and sad reality that Bailey might be faced with a future of degenerative disc disease with associated pain and immobility.

After speaking to someone that went through the same experience with her dog, they recommended an animal chiropractor. I had never heard of a chiropractor for animals but I went searching for an answer that could help Bailey. After some research, I found Dr. Teri. I had to carry Bailey in to her first appointment. Within 1 to 2 visits we started seeing an improvement in Bailey. By her third appointment, Bailey happily ran into the office to see Teri! No more meds were needed and her mobility increased and pain decreased! We were amazed. Teri's compassion, friendliness, thoroughness, professionalism and true desire to help Bailey, instantly won us, and Bailey, over! Bailey is 100% back to health and continues to see Teri occasionally for maintenance. 
After seeing what she had done for Bailey, I have started seeing Dr. Teri for my own health and wellness for back and neck issues and she has helped immensely with the same care, compassion and attention that she gave to Bailey.
She is definitely someone I would recommend for both yourself and your animals!
The entire staff at Think Chiropractic and Wellness are amazing, friendly and caring!” - Jen C.

"At only 3 years old, my lab has had three major orthopaedic surgeries. While the surgeries were successful, the past issues with her knees had affected her back.
Slow to rise, reluctance to do stairs and a hitch in her gait were visible problems. We thought we would give chiropractic a try, unsure if it would be a benefit. 
After 6 adjustments with Dr. Teri, a significant improvement was seen. Mobility betterment & comfort levels have increased and continue daily. Chiropractic treatment with Dr Hayward has provided positive results that have made an improvement in the quality of my dogs life.” - Janet C.
