Dr Viki - Old Dog Wellness Chiropractic Check - ResizedWe are fortunate to have Dr Viki Dioszegi working with us at The Natural Vets.  Dr Viki worked alongside Dr Rowan Kilmartin in Animal Options vet practice (which is now ‘Love That Pet’ Gold Coast North) for many years, performing chiropractic care and manual therapies, and after a 5 year stint running her own practice in Far North Queensland, now brings her incredible hands-on healing skills to our patients.

Dr Viki is very skilled with manual therapies can help any animal experiencing pain or musculoskeletal issues with her chiropractic, osteopathic, acupuncture and muscle release techniques.  If your pet is suffering from injuries or pain, and has signs such as lameness, stiffness, reduced mobility, muscle weakness, disc problems, balance issues, arthritis, hip dysplasia, functional changes such as sudden reluctance to jump, injury, or requires post-surgery rehabilitation, Dr Viki will be able to help.

Other problems that may respond to Viki’s treatments include bladder problems such as incontinence and nerve damage.  This type of care is especially beneficial for senior pets and growing puppies as well as any pet suffering from these listed conditions.

Many pets may be suffering from some pain silently, showing only subtle changes that can go unnoticed.  Regular examinations with an attentive Veterinarian are essential for your pet’s complete health and well-being, as many things can be detected early before they become an entrenched problem that is more difficult to treat.

In this video Dr Viki explains how a puppy check is done, including a thorough musculoskeletal check to identify any imbalances. If problems are identified and corrected early, pups are more likely to grow in a balanced and correct way, and so early intervention is important for long-term health. Getting puppies off to a great start is one of our passions here at The Natural Vets, so if you have a young dog under 12 months of age, (or a giant breed under 2 years), be sure to book in for a musculoskeletal check with Dr Viki soon!  We recommend at least two puppy checks with Dr Viki while your dog is growing, and additional checks after any injuries or excessively rough play.

 

Dr Viki is getting quite the following due to her empathetic, gentle and caring manner with both clients and their pets, and only works part-time, so if you would like to book your pet in for a bodywork session please call soon as we may need plenty of notice!  With Viki’s hands-on healing skills, your pet can return to a state of vibrant vitality like you remember from their puppy years!
