Dr. Alisha Barnes

Dr Alisha BarnesDr. Alisha Barnes received her bachelor’s degree in zoology at Colorado State University and her Chiropractic Doctorate degree from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. She then attended the rigorous and well-known animal chiropractic program at Parker University in Dallas, Texas. The curriculum centered around the identification of common veterinary conditions, canine and equine anatomy, and chiropractic condition identification and proper treatment. Dr. Alisha is certified by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA). The AVCA is the premier national animal chiropractic association, where members are held to the highest standards in knowledge and care.

“One of the main reasons I became an animal chiropractor was my adopted mixed-breed dog, Luna. She had been suffering with deteriorating hips and back stiffness as she was getting older. Watching my little girl limp around in pain was heartbreaking for me. I wanted so badly to make her feel better and have her be her happy, silly self again. Chiropractic care was the answer! Through adjusting and massage, Luna is back to acting like a puppy (something I never thought would happen). She comes to me whenever she is pain knowing that ‘mommy’ can fix it, it is the best feeling in the world.”

“I have always had a great love and respect for animals. It was my furry friends that taught me about kindness, compassion, acceptance, and friendship. Consequently, I am happy to devote myself to returning the favor. I feel so honored and grateful to take the knowledge and tools that I have been given to help animals live happier, healthier and pain-free lives. I get to meld my two loves together: animals and chiropractic care.”

“Knowing that I can make their lives a little easier, a little better and a little less painful is such a blessing and I am so lucky.”

    “Dr. Alisha is kindness to the core! She is an incredibly loving and gentle being. Her knowledge is immeasurable and I have, and will always, trust my entire family in the care of her hands.”

    Dr. Wilson, Montesano, Washington

    “I have been providing chiropractic care for my companion animal patients for almost 20 years. The ability to offer chiropractic care has allowed me to help structural conditions that here to for I could not have helped with traditional veterinary medicine.”

    Dr. Gene Giggleman, DVM, AVCA President

    “Hello Dr Alisha, I know nothing quite says it like a video of our happy dog playing like he is a puppy again after our visits with you, several months ago this is something we thought he would never do again. We figured age had set in and he would just steadily degrade like most older dogs do. But he has been given a chance to live happily and virtually pain free. It over joys us to see igloo, play and romp. I thought you would enjoy your work from our view and seeing it in action.”

    Jen Vermette, Fort Collins, Colorado

    “Dr. Alisha is amazing! With just one adjustment she relieved my 2-year-old black lab from intermittent incontinence… I’ve worked in the healthcare field with Chiropractors for over 20 years. Dr. Alisha is incredibly gifted and it was a pleasure watching her work with my lab. I was very impressed!”

    Elissa Viarengo, Fort Collins, Colorado

    “Dr. Alisha is by far the most professional, competent, attentive and caring chiropractor for dogs in North America. She truly cares about dogs and people, and it shows in her excellent work. Highly recommended.”
