Chiropractic adjustments help to restore comfort, enforce normal muscle memory and relieve nerve tissue compressions.

Chiropractic adjustments help to restore normal skeletal ranges of motion. Your animal will first be examined with detailed palpation to assess their muscles and posture. The animals are examined while walking to assess their gate. Joints are palpated to assess their movement and abnormal joints are adjusted to restore their appropriate range of motion.

Chiropractic adjustments help to restore comfort, normalize muscle memory and relieve nerve compression.

Only licensed veterinarians or licensed chiropractors with advanced postgraduate training and certification can perform chiropractic care on your animal. Dr. O’Brien is certified by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association and is a graduate of the Options for Animals College of Animal Chiropractic.


Low risk, non-invasive adjunctive therapy used to lessen pain, relax muscles and improve digestion.

Acupuncture is a treatment that works through the nervous tissue and connective tissue to reduce pain and initiate a healing response. It is a low risk, non-invasive adjunctive therapy that proves to lessen pain, relax muscles improve digestion, and dissipate stress.

Small silicone-coated needles (also known as dry needling) are placed through the skin at specific points on the body to generate a healing response. The needle placement causes release of endorphins and the body’s natural steroids that cause relaxation during treatment.

Electrostimulation can be applied to the dry needling to deliver a deeper, larger reaching treatment.

Only licensed veterinarians with advanced acupuncture training and certification can administer acupuncture treatment. Dr. O’Brien completed her acupuncture certification at the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course through the Colorado State University.


Non-invasive, non-painful laser that penetrates tissues to promote tissue healing and reduce inflammation.

Laser Therapy, also known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), is a cutting-edge treatment method that is used to decrease healing time and reduce inflammation. The therapeutic laser interacts with cells of the body by creating a biochemical change. This change promotes healing of tissue by improving lymphatic drainage and improving blood flow.

Animals might experience a tingling sensation or a slight warming sensation. Most animals relax quickly during the treatment. Frequency of treatment is dependent on the condition and a treatment plan will be determined to best benefit your animal.
