Unleashed Thoughts from Dr. Andie Ibarra, Animal & Human Chiropractor
No bones about it, it’s important to take care of our bodies, as well as our pets’. Many of us seek the healing touch of a chiropractor to help us with everything from back injuries to headaches to hip problems and more. But, have you ever thought about chiropractic care for your pet? They need and deserve the same level of healing as humans. Meet Dr. Andie Ibarra from On 4 Legs Wellness, who dedicates her life to help our precious animal kingdom. That’s pretty fur-tastic!
Tell us about yourself, Dr. Ibarra.
AI: I am both a human and animal chiropractor. I went to chiropractic school and my love for animals led me to specialize in animal chiropractic. I am passionate in helping others recover from injuries and feel their very best with natural approaches to therapy. The body is amazing in what it can do, and if you give it the right tools, it will heal!
Tell us about your four-legged family.
AI: I have three rescue dogs: Leo and Lindsey, who are crazy Chihuahuas, and Phoenix, a wild Boston Terrier.
What’s your favorite way to spend time with your furbabies?
AI: We love going on runs around the neighborhood and going to the dog park to mingle and bark at others.
What was the name of your first pet?
AI: Cleo. He was an overweight toy poodle, who was king of the Ibarra household. We also had Cleo’s wife and daughter, so they were their own little poodle family.
What’s your favorite memories of growing up with animals?
AI: Since the moment I got Cleo at the age of 3, I liked the idea that I had a small furry friend to play with.
If you could be any animal what would it be and why?
AI: A dog so that I could be spoiled the way my dogs are!
Do you support any animal-related causes? If so, which ones?
AI: Yes, I’m involved with the American Boston Terrier Rescue and Rehab.
What’s next for you? Any big plans?
AI: Continue spreading awareness about animal chiropractic since many people do not know that is an option for their pets. In most cases, it is a less expensive, less invasive approach to wellness.
