She then attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto where she became a Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Sydney decided to bring her love for all animals back into her life by furthering her studies and completing the extensive post-graduate program at the Veterinary Chiropractic Learning Centre where she became a certified Animal Chiropractor.

Sydney has always had a passion for animals. She grew up competing and riding in the Hunter/Jumper disciplines. She spent most of her time growing up with her family's three horses Cherokee, Sheba, and Sugar. She now rides for pleasure in her spare time. Growing up her family had cocker spaniels and labs. Sydney and her Blue Heeler Ghost have started learning agility and spend a lot of time hiking and paddle boarding. Dr. Sydney's hope is that she can keep you and your four-legged friends moving their best and enjoying all that the outdoors has to offer.

  • How frequent will my animal need treatment?
    This question largely depends on your individual animal. Many factors can play a part in this including your animals age, current health, activity levels, and the length and level of initial injury. Many acute injuries (injuries that are new days-weeks) and longstanding injuries can benefit from more frequent treatments at first. An example of this could be 4 treatments in 2-4 weeks. If at that point symptoms do not decrease or have improvements, there may be other issues at play and you may be referred back to your veterinarian for re-evaluation. Many patients also fall under wellness care which is proactive maintenance. These pets can be seen less frequently such as once a month or every few months to assist with healthy aging and health dispositions of certain breeds.
  • Does pet insurance cover Animal Chiropractic?
    Many pet-insurance providers can cover animal chiropractic. If you’re thinking about pet-insurance for your animal, consider selecting a package that includes rehabilitative treatment options like animal chiropractic and animal physical therapy.
