Basic Veterinary Acupuncture Certification Courses

Furthering our efforts to provide our animal community with the finest Integrative Health Care possible, Options for Animals is proud to be collaborating with the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society. Options for Animals currently offers 4 Essentials in Animal Chiropractic Courses, as well as many CE courses, every year at our main campus in Wellsville, Kansas. We are now proud to be hosting the IVAS Certification Course in Basic Acupuncture in 2017.


Although sometimes appearing to be as different as Yin and Yang, manipulative techniques such as Tui Na and Die-da have been a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. At Options we will teach you the most advanced and researched form of manual medicine today, Chiropractic. With your acupuncture, you will have a powerful combination of therapies that your patients and clients will love.

Course Dates and Costs:
Options for Animals offers the most diverse scheduling in the industry. Regulated by the AVCA, the IVCA, and the Kansas Board of Regents, all students must complete the Essential (Basic) Animal Chiropractic Course within two (2) years of beginning. The course consists of over 210 hours of classroom and laboratory instruction in a five (5) module format. The modules must be taken in order. Each module starts Wednesday morning and ends the following Sunday at noon. Our schedules allow a student to finish in as little as five weeks, or as stated, as long as two years. Due to busy schedules, most doctors choose to attend one module a month for 5 months.

Please visit our web site, www.optionsforanimals.com, for a complete list of schedules, but below are start dates through 2019. Note that our tuition generally rises slightly the 1st of every September. This reflects added food and materials expense. Also, seats are limited, so register early. Only $350.00 is required to hold a seat. The tuition below reflects if paid in full by the first module of attendance.
