Doylestown Veterinarian Receives Chiropractic Certification

Sep 30, 2018 12:42PM
Dr. David MacDonald, with Doylestown Veterinary Hospital & Holistic Pet Care, recently received certification in veterinary spinal manipulative therapy (VSMT) from Healing Oasis Wellness Center, in Sturtevant, Wisconsin.

The VSMT program is a post-graduate certification approved by the College of Animal Chiropractors and the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association. The American Veterinary Medical Association recognizes veterinary chiropractic as a complementary and alternative treatment, a category that also includes acupuncture. 

MacDonald has been practicing veterinary medicine in Pennsylvania for 18 years. He blends traditional veterinary medicine with acupuncture, chiropractic and Chinese herbal medication to offer a fully integrative approach to pet health care. He is a member of the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.

Founded in 1972, Doylestown Veterinary Hospital & Holistic Pet Care is a full-service small animal practice integrating conventional medicine with a range of holistic therapies.

“Dr. MacDonald is dedicated to highly individualized care, especially in cases of chronic illnesses where a unique solution may be the best treatment option,” says practice owner Dr. Laura Weis. “We are excited to add chiropractic to our selection of holistic therapies, and his certification will be a true benefit to area pet owners that desire a more personalized approach to care.”
