DR. BILL ORMSTON
DVM, CAC, DVETHOM
Bill Ormston received a BS in animal science in 1982 and a veterinary degree in 1988, both from Iowa State University. Since graduation, Dr. Ormston has worked in or owned mixed animal practices. In 1998 he attended Options For Animals and became certified in animal chiropractic care by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Assoc. In 2002 he hosted the AVCA conference in Dallas Texas at Parker Chiropractic College and then was asked to help start an Animal Chiropractic program at the College. In 2012, Dr. Amy and Dr. O decided that for busy professionals to become certified Animal Chiropractors, the program needed more flexibility and Animal Chiropractic Education Source (A.C.E.S.) was formed. They moved to the ranch in 2016 so that students could be dipped in the philosophy while learning with hands on live animals every day they are in class.
In 2004 Dr. O completed his degree in Veterinary Homeopathy from the British Institute of Homeopathy. Dr. O worked with Equilite products to develop CrisEase the one product you should never leave home without. Dr. Bill wrote “Holistic Animal Health” for Energique to help explain how to use their products in animals. He has developed homeopathic first aid kits complete with flip chart instructions for animal owners. The “ChyroRyde saddle interface was developed out of the need to not only be able to verify saddle fit issues but correct them.
Dr. O helped Erchonia bring their premium human laser into the veterinary market. In 2016 he and Dr. Amy were approached by AVANT to develop protocols for and to help bring another cold laser into the veterinary market.
