Chiropractic Care:  Chiropractic care is an adjunct to your pet's veterinary care, it does not replace traditional veterinary care.  Animal chiropractic care works with a veterinarian to provide the best overall treatment strategy for your pet's health.  For more information on veterinary chiropractic, click here.


Acupuncture: Acupuncture is part of an ancient Chinese method of diagnosis and treatment called Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM is a holistic approach to health which views the patient as an organism with interrelated energetic parts rather than breaking the individual down into separate systems and symptoms. Holistic Medicine is an approach that considers the animal as a whole... body, mind, spirit, diet and environment. It can be Eastern, Western or Integrated in its basic philosophy and still be holistic.  For more information on acupuncture, click here
