Finding a Good Chiropractor
A number of people mentioned in comments on yesterday's post that they are having trouble finding a chiropractor. I prefer that my chiropractor also have veterinary training, and a great place to find a vet/chiropractor is the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association. Their training standards are rigorous, and our vet/chiro is a member. That said, as with any listing of professionals, there are good and not so good ones in there - your horse will tell you if you've picked well. Also, of course there are good chiropractors who aren't vets, and there are lots and lots of not so good chiropractors out there. Our first chiropractor was also a vet, and did competent work and helped our horses somewhat, but he was somewhat mechanical with the horses and we like our new chiro better, and the horses LOVE her, which is what counts.
