Welcome to the website of the College of Animal Chiropractors Inc.(CoAC), formerly known as the ‘American Canadian College of Animal Chiropractic’. The CoAC is an international, nonprofit organization promoting excellence in integrated animal health care through the development of the art and science of animal chiropractic by utilizing research, high-quality education, and service to the public, to alleviate suffering and improve the quality of life of all our animal patients.

The Board of the College works hard to represent those licensed professionals who have successfully completed approved animal chiropractic certification programs and who are dully qualified and licensed in their respective states.

On our website, you can find information regarding our mission statement, objectives, goals, membership, approved education programs, and our Articles and Bylaws.

The field of animal chiropractic is rapidly growing; people are attracted to our interdisciplinary approach and stimulated by the intellectual challenge this rewarding field offers. The CoAC honors this progressive approach to education while maintaining our commitment to the foundational principles of our beginnings. Our philosophy is embedded in the integration of veterinary medicine and the art and science of chiropractic to provide the best care for our patients.

We are committed to education and growth. As one of our founders once stated, “We will accomplish this with teaching based on love, the spirit of discovery, and a commitment to give. We will bear the burdens of the pioneer so that the path will be clearer and straighter for those that follow. We know that the foundations we create will influence animal chiropractic care for the generations of animals and humans to come. We understand that our time here is but brief, yet the ultimate truth in chiropractic is universal, enduring and significant.”

Over the last decade, there has been a tremendous transformation and expansion here at CoAC. We have grown into an international, standardizing, and accrediting organization throughout North America, Europe and Latin America, and we continue to grow!

The mission of the College is to promote excellence in integrated animal health care through the development of the art and science of animal chiropractic utilizing research, education, and service to the public, in order to alleviate suffering and improve the quality of life of our animal patients.
