Lily the Pug

Dr. Christine has been instrumental and a true angel to our precious pug, Lily, who is going on 18! We were sent home in September, 2018 from a local vet’s office with the guidance that Lily would slowly fade away and there is nothing more they can do. Not settling for that answer, and with a little research we found Dr. Christine! In Dr. Christine’s care, we implemented a chiropractic and acupuncture regimen, changed a few supplements and implemented a raw diet, even though a local traditional vet was adamant that Lily stay on a dry kidney care kibble. Today, Lily truly is living a healthy and joyful life! With Dr. Christine’s amazing care and love we’ll be forever grateful for the additional time that we’ve been gifted with Lily on the earth plane!!

Bijou Walking Again!

Our dog is a five year old standard poodle that mysteriously became ill and paralyzed in her front legs. After two days of expensive emergency care without a diagnosis, we were told by ER vets that in order to diagnose and treat her further, an MRI or CT Scan would be required. Estimated at between 5,000.00 and 7,000.00 for the scan and possible surgery, we could not afford this option and were discussing end of life measures for our dog.

With no other options, a friend recommended Dr. Christine Woodford. Dr. Woodford adjusted Bijou’s back and administered acupuncture along with a pulsed electromagnetic field (Magna Wave) treatment.

When we feared the worst for our beloved family dog, the treatments Dr. Woodford gave Bijou had her getting up and walking within 48 hours. It was truly unbelievable. Dr. Christine has been a God send and we are grateful for her service!

Gino is back to eating and yawning without pain

June 3 2020 Our 10 yr. Old Papillion was unable to chew or yawn without yipping. Dr. Christine recommended 3 treatments. The results after the second treatment were remarkable. Our sweet boy Gino is back to eating and yawning without pain. Thank you so much for your gift of healing.

Our 5 year 70 pound

Our 5 year 70 pound black Labrador Retriever has been suffering with seasonal allergies for 3 years. This year when the spring allergy season was over he was still itching. Traditional antihistimine did not help. Dr. Christine has been treating Shadow with acupuncture treatments and herbal supplements since July 2017. December 1, 2017 Shadow stopped his constant itching completely. I thank God I found Dr. Christine, she is so easy to work with and very professional!

Dr. Woodford is the Best!

Dr. Woodford does such an amazing job. She really cares about the animal and it’s health.  I love how she treats your horse or dog just like its one of her own! She is willing to give suggestions on how to help and
improve your horse. She always remembers the horse when she comes back! I am just starting to have her work on my doxies and she was great with them! They are more relaxed and happy after their treatment! Dr. Woodford has done so much for our horses over the years. I don’t know what we would do without her! She is the best!

Our four-year old Labradoodle, Lucy, was diagnosed with mild arthritis in her front elbow and continually limped on her front leg. We tried anti-inflammatory and pain medications and yet she continued to limp. Because of her young age, I was concerned about keeping her on medication to alleviate her discomfort. I heard about Dr. Christine from a friend whose dog had seen much improvement after acupuncture, and I decided to give it a try. After one treatment, we saw improvement in Lucy’s condition, and after several treatments she moved without limping! Dr. Christine continues periodic treatments, and Lucy no longer limps and is completely free of medication! I’m so happy that we found Dr. Christine and that she offers an alternative to traditional treatment plans!

Toby and Sola

We have two Shih Tzu dogs, Toby and Sola. Toby is 14 years old and Sola just turned 8. A few years ago Sola was having pain in her back and hind legs, we took her to our veterinarian and they gave her pain shots but when the shot wore off she would be back in pain. I had heard that Dr Woodford used acupuncture for animals and because I have used it I wanted to see if it would help Sola. Dr Woodford was so very kind and gentle with her, she was very thorough and assured us there was no permanent damage and proceeded to give her treatment including acupuncture. Sola showed immediate relief and did not have pain or issues of showing it after the treatment. We did some followup appointments but she was completely healed and back to regular activites. This past winter our older dog Toby started to show signs of not moving as well and not enjoying his walks. Sola also was showing some signs of not wanting to jump up from the floor to our laps etc. We again took both to Dr Woodford and she treated both of our dogs with gentle manipulation and acupuncture. Toby is much better, he does not act like he hurts as much and he has more agility. Sola is fine now, her tail is wagging and she is back to her favorite activitiy roaming our fenced back yard. I am so thankful that we have a caring doctor like Dr Woodford so close to our community, she gives renewed life to animals in need. We will be taking our dogs to her periodically to keep them mobile and to try and prevent a more serious issue.

Vegas, Joey, Rhett and Ruby

VIPsvet is very fortunate to be able to treat Lindsay’s whole critter family! Lindsay first came to visit us for saddle fit issues and now brings all her horses for at least a yearly adjustment. Lindsay believes all her horses ride much better when maintained by Dr. Christine’s adjustments. She also does stretches for them and uses a unique blend of essential oils that Dr. Christine recommended.

We have also had the pleasure of treating Ruby, a two year old Red Heeler. She suffers from seizures. Ruby is treated with chiropractic, acupuncture, Magna Wave and essential oils. Lindsay has noticed a big reduction in the frequency of seizures.

Lindsay is very happy with how her critters all have responded to treatment! She is so grateful to be able to work through each critter’s individual issue and scheduling an appointment is easy.

Kathy first sought our services in May of 2016. Beth suddenly was not placing well at the shows. A judge noticed Beth’s back was not flat. Kathy came to see Dr. Christine for treatment. Beth responded well to treatment and is back to winning in the show ring!


Our 13 year old Golden had been receiving acupuncture for arthritis and a progressive disease called degenerative myelopathy (weakness in the rear end) in Anchorage Alaska.
This fall we made the move to Mount Vernon Iowa. Knowing I would need to find “India” a veterinarian who could provide her with treatment, I began my search before we left Alaska. We were very fortunate to find Dr. Christine Woodford @ VIPs! India receives both acupuncture and chiropractic care every three weeks and is doing fantastic! At nearly 14 (in March), she is running and playing with our two other dogs plus all those new friends she meets!!! We feel blessed that Dr. Christine’s knowledge and healing hands have enhanced India’s quality of life in her “golden years”. Dr. Christine is highly recommended!
We are truly appreciative,
