My practice philosophy is first and foremost to prevent disease and to find imbalances before symptoms manifest – basically treat before the last straw breaks the camel’s back. If disease has occurred already, I will help you address the root cause to create the greatest opportunity for healing.
The body has the innate ability to heal, provided it is supported in its efforts to do so. Such support can look very differently for each animal and may include different healing modalities that nurture body, mind and spirit. For more information on the services I offer, I invite you to explore my website. If there is a subject you are particularly interested in please feel free to let me know.

Neurology – the word itself can make one’s head spin! As some of you know, I’ve embarked on a journey into the depth of how the nervous system works. To explain a little bit how this added knowledge affects my work withd your animals I thought I’d take Emma to be my example. Emma is a 16 year old …
The common understanding of Chiropractic Care is ‘cracking bones’, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Imagine a couple of scenarios: Client: My dog is really weak in the rear end and incontinent. Veterinarian: The reason could be a misalignment of the atlas (C1) Client: My horse injured her superficial digital flexor tendon. Veterinarian: The reason could be …
Close to 100% of all horses I see and know of show some signs of metabolic imbalances in their hooves and bodies. Those can reach anywhere from simple thrush, misalignments of the hooves to severe hoof pathologies such as founder for example or simply unexplained soreness.
