Chiropractic is one of the few modalities in veterinary medicine where results are often seen within
minutes of treatment.

I'm flexible to accommodate your
schedule in Northern Virginia.
On Thursdays I am located in Severna Park, MD.
I recommend Biologically Appropriate Raw Food.
BARF is a complete and carefully balanced blend of raw meat, fruits, vegetables and bone.
Why I like and promote BARF food for dogs:
There is no middle man-- if there should be a problem with the food, the friendly staff at BARF world will reach out to you directly. (FYI, I do not know of a food recall of BARF food.)
The staff is super friendly, helpful and professional. Have a nutrition question concerning your dog's diet needs, just call BARF world and you can speak to a staff member or veterinarian directly.
I like their AutoShipment because YOU tailor it to your schedule. Yes, they recommend an auto-shipment schedule based on your dogs breed and size, but ultimately YOU are in control through your dashboard.
I like the ingredients.
I like the wealth of information displayed on their website.

This book is a collection of my own horse stories and the lessons I learned.
For those of us who love horses, they have a somewhat magical quality about them, an unknown mystery. For those of us who have owned horses, they have been teachers, healers and partners.
This book is a collection of my own horse stories and the lessons I learned.
Stories that have helped me understand myself better. Stories that have made me see people in a different light. Stories that have made me think outside the box and re-create my own box.
These are stories and lessons about healing, growing, and changing. This book is a collection of horse inspired lessons about wealth, health and, most importantly, relationships.
"I am a Realtor in NoVa and I think this is a go to guide I can keep with me and use when people baffle me. I will be a better leader in my business if I can follow just a few of these ideas. I particularly like when Dr. Jung wrote : What you focus on expands, focus on negative it will increase. That spoke to me.
After a very long week of a frustrating transaction, I started to blame others for all of the things that went wrong. Realizing that I can't always make everything perfect and try as I might, I can't make things go well all of the time because things happen. I don't know why but I opened the middle of the book and there it was in black & white.."don't blame others for things that don't work out as planned"
There were so many words in this great little book that are huge and spiritual. I am reading it again!
Fabulous and worth every minute of reading. God bless this writer and I am looking forward to the next edition." SF

Here's what my clients have said...
Our 9 year old dog, Eddie, injured himself earlier this year while chasing a squirrel. After undergoing testing and exams, it was determined that he had injured his neck. He had "episodes" where he seemed absolutely miserable and was in terrible pain. They lasted more than an hour and became increasingly frequent. Our regular vet treated his symptoms with muscle relaxers and pain medications, which helped, but also had undesirable side effects. It was suggested that if Ed continued to have issues, surgery would likely be the next step.
A friend suggested we look into chiropractic treatment, and that is when we found Dr. Jung. From the very first treatment, Eddie had immediate relief of his symptoms. His "episodes" became much less frequent, and we have been able to go longer between visits as well. My husband said that Eddie had a look on his face that said "Hey, wow, my neck feels better!" when he was first "adjusted."
Eddie has fear aggression, and is extremely protective of me (his Mom), and we were concerned about whether Dr. Jung would be able to treat his neck with that added complication. Much to our delight, Dr. Jung knew just how to handle this, and she has never had an issue with Eddie's temperament. He doesn't need to be muzzled or anything, and I am convinced that Eddie knows Dr. Jung is helping him. Clearly her expertise and experience with animals has given her the ability to handle even the most challenging cases.
My husband and I are so grateful to have found Dr. Jung, and she's been a miracle worker for our family. We are happy that she was able to treat the problem as opposed to treating the symptoms, and Eddie is a MUCH happier, more playful dog.

Gunter is almost 10 years old and with monthly treatments by Dr Jung he acts and runs like he is a puppy again!
She keeps him in tip top shape to keep up his active lifestyle!
Thanks Dr Jung!
Karen Ernest with Gunter
I have heard no more 'complaints' from Granite, but saw a visible difference in his demeanor almost as soon as we returned home. He is a happier dog, as if the clock had turned back a couple of years. This is definitely not my imagination. Thank you for this improvement.

“Before we brought Roxanne to Dr. Jung, my mom was very skeptical. She had never heard of chiropractic for animals. Due to Roxanne being in so much pain, could barely walk, yelped in pain if you tried to touch her, no longer wanted to play, was barely eating or drinking, my mom agreed to give it a shot.
After the first appointment, we weren’t sure if it was working or not because she seemed to be in more pain, but we were told that was normal. We continued to bring her every week and each week she was getting more mobility and was becoming more like herself. After about two months, Roxanne was running, playing, eating, drinking, and back to her spunky self.
My mom and I are beyond grateful for Dr. Jung. She truly has a gift and is beyond AMAZING! Needless to say, my mom is now a believer in Chiropractic for animals! “

When I first brought my 9 year old mixed breed dog Roxy to Dr Jung she was in a lot of pain and suffering from various digestive issues. Too much medication to control arthritis pain and allergy symptoms for years had taken their toll. I was looking for a better way to keep Roxy mobile and comfortable. Dr Jung's adjustments made a huge difference. Within hours of her first adjustment Roxy was running and playing again. I couldn't believe it! With periodic adjustments from Dr. Jung, Roxy no longer needs daily pain medication.
Dr Jung took the time to understand all of Roxy's health issues. As a result of her recommendations for changes to Roxy's diet and supplements, her allergies are under control and her digestive system is calm. Roxy is healthier than she's been in years. Dr Jung is rare find. She's a highly skilled veterinarian who genuinely cares about the animals she treats and it shows in her results. I highly recommend Dr Jung!

Peanut is doing very well, back to his normal self. It is funny that I was doing tricks with him before you came and he wasn't doing the twist (go in a small circle). I thought he didn't remember it. After your adjustment, though, he was doing it just fine. I think his neck was really bothering him.
Athena just seems calmer and relaxed. She is not exhibiting any of the restlessness that I saw on Friday.

Elvis, our year and a half old, Portuguese Water Dog started limping. Sometimes he limped on the left leg, but usually it was the right leg. It came and went every few days, only lasting a few hours. After two visits with Dr Jung, he has not limped at all.
He definitely seems more relaxed and comfortable after his visits.
I think chiropractic work, not only, has helped with his current issue but will prevent other problems in the future. Thanks you so much Dr Jung!

My Bengal cat, Bard, has a habit called PICA...a habit of chewing inappropriate items. He has suffered much with this PICA. After trying several homeopathic treatments, acupuncture and other medical tests, we found our way to Dr. Jung for chiropractic treatment.
When Dr. Jung walked into the exam room, I immediately felt her calming energy and kindness. She was great with Bard and worked within his constraints the first appointment. He curls up into a ball when going to the vets, and she was patient and kind in his adjustments. She explained to me what behavior to look for in the following week, after the treatment.
A few adjustments that first appointment, and he was a changed cat from that moment on. I immediately noticed his standing up in his carrier on the car ride home. He was calmer and not as skittish when he got home.
Dr. Jung is so good with him... just today he had a adjustment, he went from being curled up on the stainless steel treatment table to looking in her eyes and relaxing his body..
She is AMAZING with him!

After three different evaluations including a veterinary neurologist, we couldn’t figure out what was wrong with Gunnar. There was discussion of MRIs, Ultrasounds and other expensive diagnostic tests, but after an initial visit with you and your chiropractic adjustment, Gunnar is feeling so much better! No evidence of his limping or knuckling! We are so grateful!

Upon arriving early one morning I was frantic to learn that my horse, Zhante, had escaped his pen sometime in the evening! Zhante had gotten cast in his pen and while trying to get up somehow got the whole pen panel up onto his withers - and repeatedly banged himself against it - as he tried to stand.
Needless to say I was very worried about him and I immediately called Heike! She came to our pen right away and looked Zhante over from head to toe! having her there was absolutely calming for me. I was so incredibly worried that Zhante had hurt himself in ways that I didn't know - I knew that Heike WOULD know! And she did!
In her quiet calm, she totally gave both of us confidence 'in the moment' and helped us through a difficult time. Her gentleness and total observance and concern for Zhante's thresholds helped us evaluate the extent of his injuries. She was our 'rock' when we needed stability and I will never be able to thank her enough for that!!
I was impressed!!! Zhante's well being is first and foremost to me and I was VERY awed with Heike's professionalism and her knowledge and most of all her gentleness and TOTAL concern for the horse! She put his emotions and physical needs first and I really appreciated that! Zhante did, too!
If you're ever lucky enough to meet her and to have her touch your horse -- you'll know what I mean! She's amazing!

Two weeks ago, my nearly 18 year old, arthritic cat could barely walk up and down the stairs. Today Saba tore the curtains down playing on our 7 foot cat tree. Three days ago she leapt four feet from my vanity to the top of my wardrobe! The drugs help, but I think the main reason she is feeling so much better is due to the expertise of my animal chiropractor, Dr. Heike Jung.
Dr. Heike has been working her magic on Shelby, my dog, for years and also works on my horses.
I really can’t recommend her highly enough!

There was never a doubt about Dr. Heike Jung's abilities, especially regarding her chiropractic skills. About six years back our dog Quila was in her usual spot on the front porch watching anything that moved. When she stood up her entire right side looked off, as if she had a stroke. I rushed her to the vet's office where she was tested, had x-rays, palpated, etc.
The vet could not find anything wrong with Quila. I was so worried and I felt helpless. We went home and she moped around the rest of the day and night. The next morning Quila had a scheduled adjustment with Dr. Jung.
It turned out that Quila was out of alignment on her entire right side...neck, mid-section and lower spine! Dr. Jung had never seen Quila in such bad shape.
After her session with Dr. Jung, Quila started running and jumping around like a puppy. It was absolutely remarkable. Quila loves her visits with Dr. Jung so much that she would push her way through the other dogs to be first.
Other occasions, Dr. Jung was responsible for postponing hip-dysplasia surgery for Lakota, our Golden Retriever.
Our twenty year old cat jumped off the counter, hurt herself and with one adjustment by Heike she was fine. The testimonies go on and on.
Dr. Heike Jung has been so helpful to our dogs and cats through the years. She is bright, compassionate and a great veterinarian.
Georgeanne Galanete with Quila
WE LOVE DR. HEIKE!!!
My dogs are in excellent health due to her chiropractic and naturopathic advice and care.
Any animal that has her as their attending veterinarian is VERY lucky!
Simply cannot recommend her enough!
Debbie Harrison and Gang
Dr. Jung is more than an awesome chiropractor, she's a saddle fitter and a wonderful resource for help with horse/rider issues.
If it was not for her, I wouldn't still have my guy.
She not only helped to make him healthy again, she worked with me to find equipment that fit him and to find ways to make us a better team. She is always there with an encouraging word and a positive attitude.
She is gentle and patient with the horses, and equally gentle and patient with the owners.

When our twelve-year-old rat terrier, Molly, developed a pronounced limp and reluctance to stand on her right front leg, we looked for the likely cause of either a foreign object stuck in her paw or a broken bone. Our typically spirited dog couldn’t manage to climb a few stairs or to walk without obvious pain. Dr. Jung’s chiropractic knowledge and skills were exactly what were needed to return Molly to the energetic, playful dog of her youth. We feel deep appreciation and heartfelt gratitude for this extraordinary trans-formation in the quality of our dog’s life, made possible by Dr. Jung’s superlative expertise.

Heike Jung's care has been a life saver for my Pappillion "Sadie". Sadie thinks she is part cat yet lacks some of their balancing abilities and has hurt herself from falling off furniture, until we figured out the cause.
After a fall, Sadie sought out a place to hide and then refused to eat or drink and didn't want to be handled. I was given information about Dr. Jung from my own Chiropractor. I had never heard of animals being adjusted but I thought how wonderful so I called.
Dr. Jung saw Sadie right away and with her gentle touch and healing hands I watched her adjust Sadie. Dr. Jung told me little tidbits of information about how Sadie would react after being adjusted. Everything Dr. Jung had told me would happen with Sadie, did.
We follow up with Dr. Jung for "wellness adjustments" from time to time to keep Sadie in the best health we can. I believe Dr. Jung is an Angel among us and she saved Sadie's life. Dr. Jung works with calmness in her voice and the actions from her healing hands are gentle yet very effective. Your animals will sense her goodness just as we do.
Thanks Dr. Jung you are "THE BEST".
