Chiropractor expands practice to help animals needing care

Dr. Jessica Longhi

Part of the team at County Chiropractic in Picton and Wellington, Dr. Jessica Longhi (Dr. Jess) has expanded her skills and services to not only treat residents of Prince Edward County, but now, their beloved pets and animals as well.

Benefits of chiropractic care are well-known for humans, and now, Dr. Jess is showcasing the benefits animal chiropractic care can bring to animals through the mobile and clinic-based practice Morrice Animal Chiropractic.

Experiences with her own animals led her to complete the Animal Chiropractic Program through the Veterinary Chiropractic Learning Centre. She had already earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic for people at the New York Chiropractic College.

“During my academic career, I began to foster my love for animals and was brought into the horse world. I started volunteering my time at a local horse rescue, where I was introduced to Pete, and I became his forever person.”

Dr. Jess notes Pete is an off-the-track standardbred who sustained a severe stifle (knee) injury during his racing career, which led to his early retirement.

“I adopted him with this knowledge, knowing the severity of the injury, and my only intention was to give him a comfortable life in retirement,” she said. “I’ll be honest in saying that it was a tough road filled with a lot of trial and error. Working alongside my veterinarian, we came up with a plan to help improve his quality of life. The stifle injury is being cared for by his vet, while the rest of his body is under chiropractic care. Due to the chronic nature of his injury, his body has created major compensations throughout his spine, joints, muscles and extremities. Chiropractic care has helped alleviate a lot of the pain and discomfort caused by these changes.”

This lead to Dr. Jess sharing her knowledge and experiences “so that other animal owners can see how impactful alternative animal healthcare can be, and how well it can compliment and work alongside veterinary medicine,” adding primary care of any animal should always be with a veterinarian.

Reasons to seek care are the same for humans and animals – including improving mobility, reducing stiffness and soreness, chronic pain, enhancing or improving performance, behavioural changes and poor posture or confirmation.
