To benefit from our time together and best promote a high quality of life for your pet companion, it is important that you understand our holistic approach to your pet companion's wellness. We believe the best health comes from the integration of western medicine and eastern health practices. This is why we offer so many modalities all in one complex.
We are proud to be quite unlike any other veterinary practice!
The health of your pet's mind, body and spirit is influenced by your wellbeing, the health of your pet's environment (external forces including hygiene and nutrition), and genetics. I believe the six most important factors a guardian must provide to achieve maximal quality and longevity of life for his/her pet companion are: unconditional love, safety, exemplary nutrition, abundant exercise, training, and the wellbeing of the guardian's self. Remember, it is difficult for a caregiver to give if he/she is not whole. I encourage you to look at and into yourself during this nurturing process. What can you do to support the health of your mind, body, and spirit?
