Vale George Schofield OAM

I was sorry to hear of the loss of a great animal chiropractic pioneer, George Schofield. I remember in the late 80’s, long before I studied to be a vet, I had a young Rottweiller called Buick with severe mobility problems that the normal western medicine approach could not diagnose or treat.

On the way home from Buick’s “last chance” battery of tests and treatments, where I was told there was nothing they could do for him, I stopped in at George’s place with little expectation. That day changed both our lives… Buick lived another 11 happy, cat chasing years and I was inspired to become a veterinary chiropractic practitioner by completing a Graduate Diploma in Animal Chiropractic through RMIT.

George was a true pioneer and was self taught at a time when there was no training available. We are now so fortunate that courses such as the Graduate Diploma in Animal Biomechanical Medicine is available. Every day, I marvel at the power of healing animals with my hands using chiropractic techniques.

So thank you George for changing our lives so much for the better.
