Before even starting my 5 year chiropractic course I wanted to be a vet, perhaps brainwashed by James Herriot as a child. Sadly, I could not get the grades to get into vet school. After doing an HND in agriculture there followed many years of agricultural contracting shearing, lambing, cultivating and harvesting which was a great experience. However it took its toll on wrists and back which was amazingly remedied by a chiropractor, so that became the chosen route. A human course followed and then, after a gap, an animal course specialising in horses and dogs. I can now offer treatment to both horses and dogs to try to free up their nervous system through spinal alighnment and soft tissue and articular release.
