FRANKLIN LIVING— Since 1989 the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association has been credentialing animal chiropractic professionals to expand and promote knowledge and acceptance of the practice. Since 1974 the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society has been the premiere voice certifying veterinarians to offer animal acupuncture.
And since 2019, local veterinarian Dr. Emily Beason has offered these specialized forms of care for clients in north Alabama and beyond.
Beason, who founded and operates New Horizons Integrative Veterinarian Services, earned her veterinary degree from the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine about six years ago. She soon found, however, that traditional medicine wasn’t always the best answer for the animals she treated. Adding chiropractic and acupuncture as potential alternatives to traditional treatments like surgery just made good sense.
