Ed Kilday graduated from the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth in 2003 and has been practicing at Ayr Chiropractic Centre ever since. He registered with the General Chiropractic Council and has a membership of the Scottish Chiropractic Association, British Veterinary Chiropractic Association, and International Veterinary Chiropractic Association.

His love of dogs led him to become the first registered chiropractor in Scotland to achieve the gold standard in veterinary chiropractic education, graduating from the International Academy of Veterinary Chiropractic.

Veterinary Chiropractic treatment does not replace conventional veterinary medicine, it enhances it. However, it does give clients more options for the treatment of their pet. Chiropractic uses gentle but very specific manipulative techniques done by hand to improve the biomechanical and neurological function of the animal.

It can be used as an additional means of diagnosis and treatment for spinal problems as well as biomechanical related musculoskeletal disorders. Veterinary Chiropractic can be effective in the management of acute or chronic pain syndromes.

Common indicators for chiropractic management:

  • Shows signs of pain or sensitivity
  • Reluctance to move
  • Abnormal posture or movement
  • Problems climbing stairs or jumping
  • Toe dragging
  • Abnormal sitting position
  • Asymmetric use of the body
  • A stiffness after sleeping
  • Unwilling to exercise
  • Undefined lameness
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Changes in behaviour

DVS strive to use our expertise and experience to provide the best value veterinary service available locally and to provide the highest level of up to date treatment and compassionate service that we would expect for our own pets.
