Passionate About Your Pets
Chiropet provides treatment options that are not readily available in a conventional Veterinary practice or from a human Chiropractor or Acupuncturist. The aim is to provide a holistic health care program tailored to meet an individuals specific requirements utilising primarily Chiropractic and Acupuncture techniques as well as dietary, behavioural, herbal and natural therapies. Dr Condon has been a practicing Veterinarian since 1981 and has a wealth of experience. This extensive experience as well as the knowledge gained through studying and training in Chiropractic and Acupuncture ensures an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for many complex health problems.
How do you know your pet needs to see Chiropet?
A common treatment performed is the Chiropractic “manual adjustment”. This treatment is performed with a hand contact delivering a specific impulse to a specific area of the patient’s spine or joints in a specific direction.
Acupuncture is used to manage many painful or more chronic and complex health conditions that are often difficult to manage with conventional Veterinary care. As with chiropractic, acupuncture assists the body to activate the bodies healing response.
In some cases the treatment can be performed using an instrument called an Activator. “Activator” treatment uses very low force to achieve good outcomes and can be used in very young or very old patients that may not tolerate manual treatments.

Ensure your Dog is Happy and Well
So pleased that we took our boy Buddy to see Matthew. I had used Matthew before for my old German Shepherd who had hip dysplasia and she used to get acupuncture and did really well so thought I’d take Buddy my 6yo Golden Retriever to see him. Buddy also has bad hips and a bad elbow but is generally well and not in a lot of pain. Matthew examined him, heard about his current medication and suggested we take him off those meds as they aren’t great for long term use and we should hold off until he needs it. He also suggested we do hydro (water treadmill) to build up his muscle mass; but was honest enough to advise that he didn’t need chiro/acupuncture yet. That was a few months ago and we have followed his advice and Buddy has never been healthier or happier. He is leaner (not that he was overweight), drug free, doing hydro and getting stronger every week. So we couldn’t be happier either! Highly recommend Matthew, he is awesome!
