Dr. Maryanne Kraft, Animal Chiropractor/Healer, Animal Chiropractic Care
Q: What brought you to Prescott; how long have you been here?
A: Dr. Maryanne: I moved to the area almost two years ago following the pandemic and crazy restrictions in California. I moved here because a longtime patient of mine has family here in Chino Valley, so I decided to check out the area, and I love it here.
How did you become interested in your career field?
A: Dr. Maryanne: My first career was horse trainer, which led into pursuing my doctorate in chiropractic and then full circle back to animal chiropractic. Animal chiropractor/healer is now my main focus.
Q: What is the biggest challenge of your job?
A: Dr. Maryanne: Unfortunately all veterinarians are not open to chiropractic and alternative care for animals. So it takes some time and education before they will refer cases. When they learn of the success stories I have from my technique and cold laser therapy, they usually come around.
Q: What is the greatest reward of your job?
A: Dr. Maryanne: Hands down my biggest reward is the ability to get animals out of pain and treat conditions that otherwise are only addressed with drugs, surgery or unfortunately putting the animal down.
I have also been blessed with the experience of treating elephants, camels and many other unexpected animals in addition to the usual dogs, cats and horses.
Q: Where would you like to vacation next and why?
A: Dr. Maryanne: Turk and Caicos is a dream vacation because I was raised in Southern California, and I love beautiful beaches.
Q: What is your favorite Prescott activity?
A: Dr. Maryanne: I’m a foodie for sure. So I love trying new restaurants in the Prescott area.
