Dr. Bill Ormston
Dr. O started his veterinary career like a lot of veterinarians. He started out thinking he wanted one thing, only to find out that the glitz and the glamour of being it was not what he wanted. Dr. O was sure he was going to be a bovine exclusive veterinarian. After working in and owning several practices, he discovered that he really cared more about his family and their health, and wanted to use his knowledge to help them too.
That is when he discovered animal chiropractic. Through animal chiropractic, Dr. O found a sense of belonging, as well as an opportunity to help animal patients resolve their ailments.
Through the friendships and colleagues he met in the animal chiropractic profession, he learned many ways to help his family heal as well.
Animal chiropractic helped him to build a foundation for understanding health in animals that he was eager to share with other doctors like himself. Because of this he has been the backbone of more than one animal chiropractic program.
He continues to find innovative ways to help animal chiropractors grow their practice, educate their clients and help more animals.
