|2/28/2013||Saddle Club to hear veterinarian|
Hear Dr. Nikki Zeller, DVM speak during The Wet Mountain Valley Saddle Club meeting Monday, March 4, beginning at 6 p.m. at Wild West Cowboy Church located north of Westcliffe on Highway 69.
A native of Colorado, Dr. Zeller obtained her undergraduate degree at Colorado State University. She had a successful Equine Massage Practice prior to returning to CSU to pursue her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine, at which time she also received certification in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture. She has since completed training in animal chiropractic and is certified by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association.
Dr. Zeller will be speaking on and demonstrating Integrative therapies such as chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage to optimize the health of an animal. They can be used to treat internal medicine cases like allergies, gastrointestinal disorders, immune system deficiencies, pain and musculoskeletal issues, such as an abnormal gait or lameness.
Benefits include improved health and quality of life; management of acute and chronic pain; faster recovery from injury, illness, and surgery; and a stronger immune system. Integrative therapies are best used in conjunction with conventional veterinary care and are not a replacement for it.
