Animal Chiropractic Education Source
The World Leader in training Animal Chiropractors for the AVCA exam.
A.C.E.S. offers over 340 topics of Continuing Education in animal chiropractic education. Our online classes are hosted on a secure website and include downloadable notes for you to add to as you listen to each lecture. The material is available for two years from the date of the start of the program. Multiple choice quizzes at the end of each lecture ensure that most boards accept the classes as traditional CE. These online lectures are approved as regular CE through the AVCA, the South Carolina Veterinary Licensing Board, the State of Oklahoma Chiropractic Board, and many other agencies. A.C.E.S. is a RAIVE-approved provider, an approved provider of CE with the South Carolina Veterinary Licensing Board and by the Oklahoma Chiropractic Board. A.C.E.S. has also been approved by the Minnesota Board for Chiropractors and when enough interest arises for CE.
Some things just can’t be taught online and require a more personal approach. A.C.E.S. has purchased a ranch just south of the DFW metroplex where students can relax and learn in a comfortable atmosphere. Animals are both on-site and located nearby to ensure that everyone gets “hands-on”, not just a front row seat to watch. Texas law allows adjustment with a veterinary referral, so students attending class are allowed to adjust real animals under the supervision of the A.C.E.S. staff.
Placing the didactic portion of some programs online allows the best utilization of the doctors’ time when they are attending the “hands-on” portion of the program. Check out the list of courses to see what combined programs are available.

In 1998 he attended Options For Animals and became certified in animal chiropractic care by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Assoc. In 2002 he hosted the AVCA conference in Dallas Texas at Parker Chiropractic College and then was asked to help start an Animal Chiropractic program at the College. In 2012, Dr. Amy and Dr. O decided that for busy professionals to become certified Animal Chiropractors, the program needed more flexibility and Animal Chiropractic Education Source (A.C.E.S.) was formed. They moved to the ranch in 2016 so that students could be dipped in the philosophy while learning with hands on live animals every day they are in class.
In 2004 Dr. O completed his degree in Veterinary Homeopathy from the British Institute of Homeopathy. Dr. O worked with Equilite products to develop CrisEase the one product you should never leave home without. Dr. Bill wrote “Holistic Animal Health” for Energique to help explain how to use their products in animals. He has developed homeopathic first aid kits complete with flip chart instructions for animal owners. The “ChyroRyde saddle interface was developed out of the need to not only be able to verify saddle fit issues but correct them.
Dr. O assisted in Erchonia bring their premium human laser into the veterinary market. In 2016 he and Dr. Amy were approached by AVANT to develop protocols for and to help bring another cold laser into the veterinary market.
