When does your animal need my help?
Winnie Dreschel is a veterinary surgeon with extensive experience in horse and small animal medicine. She is a specialist in Equine Medicine (D) and a Chiropractic Specialist (A) and combines her medical knowledge with her specialisation in chiropractic and acupuncture.
Especially when dealing with back problems and lameness, this is a big advantage.
Both chiropractic and acupuncture are science-based treatment methods. They are often good alternatives or addition to surgical and/or medical treatments. It is a holistic support concept aiming for the well-being and preservation of health and performance of horses and small animals. Many disorders, especially lameness, could be treated or prevented before they occur.
That is why, in high performance level sports, chiropractic and also acupuncture are often the treatment of choice. Cases of animal fatigue can be dealt with well before disease can arise from it. But even seemingly hopeless cases can often be helped.
Within the last 10 to 15 years chiropractic and acupuncture have established themselves as an essential part of veterinary medicine. With the help of chiropractic overall performance, general health, elasticity, willingness to be ridden and fertility can be noticeably improved.
Acupuncture as part of the Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) is a holistic concept in veterinary medicine.
The animal is examined and treated in a comprehensive way. Also, acupuncture helps the well-being and prophylactic preservation of health, which again increases overall animal performance and improves the rideability of the horse.
In small animal medicine chiropractic and acupuncture have become accepted with similar success, especially for working and sport dogs or as prophylactic treatments for ageing dogs.
