Dr. Wally Palmer, DVM


Dr. Palmer is both a DVM and a chiropractor. He believes in providing chiropractic care as a holistic approach to health and performance problems of the horse. Chiropractic care provides an alternative method of care, along with the traditional veterinary medicine and surgery. Adjustments can prove to be invaluable in detecting and treating gait abnormalities and other performance issues in our athletic horses. Along with chiropractic care, Dr. Palmer also performs acupuncture.
