Greetings to all!

Welcome to the AOW space where ideas, experiences, and concerns can be shared across our community. Animals speak one language,  have similar health issues, and together we make their world a better place no matter where we live.

EQUINE OSTEOPATHY

Consistent mobility is vital to a horse – it is the basis of everything an animal lives for. Using specific diagnostic techniques, an osteopath will assess the reasons for pain and provide appropriate treatment. Osteopathic care has proven to prevent injuries and improve performance in top competitors, ‘leisure’ animals, and family pets alike.

COMMON EQUINE CONDITIONS

Osteopathy is commonly used to treat the following conditions:
Problems with the back and neck;
Problems with posture;
Change in behavior when ridden and/or general behavior;
Poor performance;
Musculoskeletal injuries.

CANINE OSTEOPATHY

Osteopathic care of dogs uses techniques developed in human osteopathy and adapted to the physical needs of the canine. With gentle manipulations, an osteopath assesses and treats joints, muscles, and fascia, restoring mobility, relieving pain, and improving the quality of an animal’s life.

COMMON CANINE CONDITIONS

Osteopathy is successful in treating the following canine problems:
Arthritis in aging dogs;
Lameness;
Spinal issues;
Loss of performance;
Mobility problems;
Injuries from training ( agility and greyhounds dogs).
