Blue Hill Farm is very happy to have a wonderful friend, vet and holistic equine specialist in our midst! Bonnie Kibbie (wife of course builder extraordinaire Jeff Kibbie) has started her own business and we are big supporters of her competence and ability to provide the best in equine care. We are so fortunate to have she and Jeff living back in the area!
Here is a bit of background information on Bonnie and her newly founded business!
" I did my undergraduate studies at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, before moving to the Philadelphia area to attend the University of Pennsylvania for veterinary school. As a fourth year veterinary student I spent time in Fort Collins, Colorado, where I became certified in veterinary medical acupuncture through the OneHealth SIM program and Colorado State University.
After graduation from vet school I completed an internship at Tennessee Equine Hospital outside of Nashville, Tennessee. During my internship I was impressed with how much chiropractic care seemed to help the patients my practice saw, and I decided to become certified myself. I obtained my chiropractic certification through the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association (IVCA), after completing the program of study at Options for Animals College of Animal Chiropractic.
Upon completion of my internship, I accepted a position at John R. Steele and Associates and returned to the southeastern Pennsylvania area. The sport horses I saw during my time in Tennessee and with Dr. Steele’s practice, combined with my experience with my own horses in the eventing community, reaffirmed my belief in the importance of the chiropractic and acupuncture work I was doing, and ultimately led to my decision to open my own practice, Balanced Care Equine."
Balanced Care Equine offers chiropractic care and acupuncture services, and is in the process of expanding to full traditional care, including dentistry. You can learn more about her practice by visiting her website: www.balancedcareequine.com, or on her Facebook page: Balanced Care Equine.
