Promoting Animal Chiropractic
Our primary goal is to provide the community with the highest quality, best educated and most dedicated animal chiropractors in the world. We know that some chiropractors and veterinarians need a little help and through our scholarship program we can support as many as 35 doctors a year in reaching their goals of becoming the best Animal Chiropractor they can be.
Our scholarship program is directed to aid the new doctor, and those that can influence the new doctor, in attaining a footing in the study of Animal Chiropractic.
For the veterinary student, we believe this combination of study, chiropractic and modern western medicine, better prepares the contemporary doctor in pursuing more choices for their patients through integrative health care.
Why Anywhere Else?
For the chiropractic student, we believe treating animals can truly complete the family practice. Even many human chiropractic patients do not realize the availability of chiropractic for their animal companions.
For faculty, residents and interns, we see a great need in promoting animal chiropractic in academia and initiating research.
