Chiropractic Work for our Furry Friends

Jo completed her doctorate in chiropractic in South Africa and ran her own successful corporate-based private practice for 5 years before moving to New Zealand. She completed a postgraduate course at Options for Animals in the USA in 2017 in order to fulfill her dream of treating animals, both big and small. 

Jo is also a competitive horse rider and appreciates how much we ask of our horses when we ride them, and realises the benefits of having them functioning at their best. From happy hackers to competing at grand prix - a horse moving freely and able to do what we ask of them to the best of their ability is what makes her job her passion.

Jo knows how much pleasure dogs bring to our lives; they are always happy to see us and put their bodies through anything we ask of them - fetching balls, running, swimming, agility, tricks, cuddling on the couch and just being our best friend. Being able to ensure that they are moving and functioning optimally is more than just a job to Jo.

Jo works with your vet, and is willing to work alongside other practitioners for the benefit of your animal. She is able to treat most animals, with a focus on horses and dogs.

Common problems animal chiropractic can help with:

Dogs-

Change in behaviour / attitude

Pain when being touched, petted or lifted

Reluctance or difficulty when climbing stairs or jumping

Difficulty when getting up after lying down

Altered sitting (“Puppy Sitting”)

Constantly licking or chewing paws

Lameness or changes in gait

Horses-

Change in behaviour / attitude

Reduced performance

Resistance to being ridden / Bucking

Changes in posture

Unhappy when saddling/girthing up

Difficulty or inability to collect

Difficulty / Inability taking the correct lead

Dis-uniting in the canter

Difficulty flexing  at poll or bending to one / or both sides

Unhappy / painful when being groomed / touched

Chiropractic treatment is an integral part of your animals wellbeing; and works very well alongside traditional veterinary care. Animals of all shapes, sizes and any age can benefit from being well adjusted from a qualified animal chiropractor.
