  • Dr. Beth Mauroni

    Dr. Beth Mauroni is an American Veterinary Chiropractic Association(AVCA) certified animal chiropractor.  She graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic and Options for Animals in 2001.

    Dr. Beth has 11 years of experience adjusting both humans and animals.  She can take care of both large and small animals, any avian species and any other animal. Dr. Beth has a gentle yet highly effective adjusting technique that easily complements any other modality.

    Animal chiropractic is a great adjunct to existing veterinary care.  Dr. Beth works with a veterinary referral.  The animal must be under traditional veterinary care.  The veterinarian should be counseled first to rule out any pathology.

    "Just as people today are looking for wellness care, I have found that pet owners are glad to hear that there is chiropractic care available for their loved companions.  Proper spinal alignment in animals is essential for the maintenance of health just as it is in people.  What I offer each client is a gentle chiropractic adjustment of the spine and/or extremities. This may include any of the other modalities I am trained in such as Cranial Sacral Therapy, trigger point therapy, Healing Touch, and Equine/Canine Sports Massage.

    Animal Chiropractic is a service that many people travel great distances for.  Dr. Beth's services are available at Dr. Liddell's office and she can also make house/barn calls.
