KURI's Integrated Natural Health Care
KURI’s specialist integrated healthcare professionals include with Dr Stefan Riederer one of the very few doctors in New Zealand qualified to offer canine chiropractic treatment and massage. We also offer integrative veterinary care, with our fully licensed vet Dr Lillian Bonner DVM CVA who is also a qualified veterinary acupuncturist and is in the midst of completing a two year diploma course in Animal Biomechanics. Plus we now offer the services of a fully registered Homeopath, Rhonda Hamilton-Cross with a Dip Hom Human & Animal.
KURI wishes to integrate their services with those currently offered to provide a high quality, educated and mindful option of integrative therapy.
Dogs can respond very well to chiropractic care. The treatment techniques are gentle and consist of osteopathy [esp. functional indirect technique] and chiropractic mobilizations and manipulations with an activator [a chiropractic adjusting tool].

The integrative veterinary care Lillian Bonner offers includes TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) and ABM (Animal Biomechanics) which includes chiropractic, osteopathic, and rehabilitative physical therapy.
We integrate our services with care received at your regular veterinarian, which may include preventative health care, medicine or surgical care. With your consent we can communicate our integrated veterinary therapy back to your regular family veterinarian via referral letters.
Our interest is in preventative wellbeing promoted through lifestyle/diet/exercise, management of chronic medical cases and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions. With integrating appropriate therapy, some examples of cases successfully managed include chronic dermatological issues, geriatric care, neurological cases included IVDD, geriatric wellness, arthritis, hip dysplasia, luxating patellas, and select cases of cruciate issues.
Any further diagnostics such as radiographs, ultrasound, or blood work and any therapy which would include veterinary medical, surgical therapy, preventative health care (vaccines, flea and worm preventatives) are to be done at your regular veterinarian. If these diagnostics had been done prior to being seen for integrative therapy by your regular veterinarian, we encourage you to bring results because Lillian uses the information to be thorough with her consults and therapy.
