"Integrative veterinary wellness" is a comprehensive approach to care which blends the best aspects of conventional Western medicine with traditional Eastern medicine and principals. This type of approach focuses on treating the whole animal to achieve optimal quality of life and wellness. We focus on care protocols that supplement a pet's normal veterinary care, offering therapies such as rehabilitation, acupuncture, herbal medicine, chiropractic, food therapy, and regenerative medicine.
In 2020, a retrospective observational study and analysis of cold laser therapy for dogs showed significantly slower disease progression for dogs that suffered from canine degenerative myelopathy.
General medicine is not offered at this practice. Focusing on TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) and rehabilitation allows us to concentrate on what we do best- solving problems from a comprehensive approach. We enjoy collaborating with referring veterinarians on cases to ensure a team approach to your animal's healthcare.
