About Dr. Mishka

Raised in Montreal with Dr. Doolittle for a mom, the love and nurturing of domestic and wild animals was established at a young age; from geese and goats in the suburban garage, to ferrets, parrots, lizards, raccoons and dogs (and everything in between), we were exposed to all kinds, and loved it!

Prior to beginning my post-secondary studies, I traveled and worked in Costa Rica as a park ranger at two national parks, one of which was a macaw sanctuary. It was in 1997 that I laid down the backpack, moved to Ontario and began my post-secondary studies. In 2001, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) from the University of Waterloo.

Having also had an interest in health and the body from a young age, it was natural that a gravitation toward Chiropractic should eventually occur. However, the hands-on aspect of the profession also appealed to the artist in me, and the engineer-inherited aspect of my brain was drawn to the biomechanics and neurology aspects. After four demanding years of study at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, I graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic in 2005.

It was in my final year at CMCC that I learned about the possibility of treating animals with Chiropractic. The fact that I would take the extra training was inevitable; the question was when?

Immediately after graduation, my husband and I moved to London, UK for some interesting work and travel experiences. A year and a half later, we returned to Canada and had our first fur-baby, Milo a miniature schnauzer/poodle mix.

AlphaChiro_logo_150pxIt was in 2012 that I finally completed the Animal Chiropractic Certificate Program, becoming a member of the College of Animal Chiropractors, and my practice has been all the richer for it!

  • I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for mentioning about your new chiropractor. I was able to make an appointment for Hudson on Dec. 19th at your new facility, and although he didn’t like the adjustment at all, it managed to subside his limp immensely. Hudson is also seeing the chiropractor on a weekly basis to work on some of the tenderness he seems to have. Like I said, he doesn’t like it, and he has to be muzzled, but it truly is doing wonders for him.

    If it wasn’t for you and your team mentioning it, I wouldn’t have thought to bring Hudson back to a chiropractor, so I thank you immensely!

    Happy Chiropractic Client!
Dr. Mishka at All About Dogs

Here at All About Dogs, we are always striving to bring together the right services and training to keep your dogs healthy and at their best as performance athletes. Project Echo is part of our vision to bring these services to our clients in our facility at 47 Gurney Crescent in Toronto.

Dr. Mishka shares our vision: “Knowing I am a part of an athlete’s increased performance, or an older animal’s renewed enjoyment of life has been incredibly fulfilling. I feel equally fortunate to bring hope and an increased quality of life back to the people that care for these pets, as it can be as equally distressing to them to see their pets struggle.” 

Chiropractic problems are common in dogs. They can result from injuries relating to running and jumping, repetitive types of activities, long periods of cage rest, being under anaesthesia, birth trauma, slips or falls, and of course the general wear and tear of life.

Pet owners may not always be aware of the stresses that affect their pets and cause chiropractic problems.

Together, with her, we bring out the best in you and your pet! This is why we now host monthly Chiro Days, where you can come to All About Dogs and have your dog treated by Dr. Mishka right here at All About Dogs.
