Dr. Kerri started her journey to becoming an animal chiropractor during her undergraduate studies in animal science. She watched the experience of a good friend who tried animal chiropractic as a last ditch effort to help her miniature pinscher who was unable to walk. Within a few treatments, the dog started to walk again, and even regained control over his bowel and bladder function.
“I knew that I wanted to take a whole body approach to helping animals, and animal chiropractic was the best way for me to do that. I am constantly amazed at how well animals respond to chiropractic care.”
Dr. Kerri has undergraduate degrees in both Animal Science and Human Biology. She obtained her Doctorate in Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University, where she was president of the Animal Chiropractic Club.
She received her certification in Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy (a.k.a. animal chiropractic) from the Healing Oasis in Sturtevant, WI. She is also certified in animal chiropractic by the College of Animal Chiropractors, and is a member of Minnesota Animal Chiropractic Care.
Dr. Kerri has taken advanced training in Craniosacral Therapy. She has also completed a two-year diplomate program in Functional Neurology. These two fields of study are particularly useful in regard to her special interest in supporting dogs and cats in their senior years, where gentle hands-on therapy and keen observational skills are extremely important.
She spends many of her weekends providing chiropractic support to our canine athletic community. And she has a special place in her heart for the sporting breeds.
