News broke yesterday that the Veterinary Surgeons Board of SA had instigated legal action against a chiropractor for treating animals. From Meagan Dillon at The Advertiser:
A CHIROPRACTOR is being prosecuted for allegedly treating six dogs and a cat at his southern suburbs practice — charging up to $55 per session and diagnosing diseases such as cancer and arthritis, court documents reveal.
The Veterinary Surgeons Board of SA has charged Christies Beach Chiropractic owner Dr Bernard Nadolny with eight counts of treating an animal for fee or reward. Dr Nadolny appeared in the Christies Beach Magistrates Court last week, when his case was adjourned until May.
The charges were laid under the Veterinary Practice Act, which prohibits people from providing paid veterinary treatment unless, at the time the treatment was provided, the person was qualified to do so.

What follows is a collection of screenshots from the pages of chiropractors, found with a very brief search of the terms “dog” and “pug”, from our own album collection.
The Chiropractic Board of Australia must wring its hands and tug its collar in despair.
