Austin Equine Chiropractic
Equine Chiropractic care, working to keep your horse happy and healthy.
Serving horses and other animals in the vicinity of Austin, Texas.
I AM BAILEY BLACK, DC,
AND I AM AUSTIN EQUINE CHIROPRACTIC.
I love animals. I have been caring for and appreciating them my entire life. All animals. I’ve been riding horses since I could walk, and I played polo in college. So while studying human chiropractic at the famed Parker University I decided to also seek my certification as an animal chiropractor. I am now a fully qualified human chiropractor and horse chiropractor. I can help other animals too!
I am a certified animal chiropractor with the Animal Chiropractic Certification Commission (ACCC) of the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA) and am licensed by the state of Texas.

In the state of Texas, for your pet to receive chiropractic care, a Veterinarian Referral Form must be completed and signed by both the owner and Veterinarian. If a patient is not a candidate for animal chiropractic or needs further diagnostics from their vet before receiving care, we will not treat and will refer to the patient’s vet as necessary. Chiropractic services are not meant to replace traditional veterinary care, but rather an integrative method that when used in conjunction, will make a positive impact in your animal’s life.
