Andria M. Cogswell MSc, DVM, CVC, CVA
Certified in Animal Chiropractic & Equine Acupuncture
Dr. Andria Cogswell grew up on a dairy farm in Nova Scotia, Canada and it is no surprise that animals were a large part of her life. She was an active 4-H member, where she got her start in competitive riding.
Dr. Cogswell completed her undergraduate degree in Biology close to her hometown, at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. After a couple of years working with show horses, she returned to school and completed a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology from York University in Toronto, Ontario. In 1996 she graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. She went on to practice at 2 different mixed animal practices and then an all-equine practice. It was while working at the all equine practice that she began courses in Animal Chiropractic. In 1999, she completed her certification in Animal Chiropractic with Options for Animals and continues to maintain her certification with the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association. Looking to go beyond the limitations of chiropractic care, she enrolled in the Chi Institute in Gainesville, Florida, completing the Equine Acupuncture course in 2009 and is a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist.
In 2010, she started Cogswell Veterinary Chiropractic & Acupuncture, LLC (CVCA). After continuing to build her business, she resigned from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011 to pursue her passion in Equine and Canine Chiropractic and Equine Acupuncture full-time.
Now working as a specialist veterinarian in animal chiropractic and equine acupuncture, she enjoys working closely with several top-notch traditional veterinary practices and has a professional working relationship with Equine Medical Services in Columbia, Missouri, Peterson and Smith Equine Hospital in Ocala, Florida, Buffalo Ridge Animal Hospital in The Villages, Florida and Columbia Canine Sports Center in Columbia, Missouri.
