lisaVeterinary Acupuncture and Holistic Care

My practice is based on loving kindness and compassion with an emphasis on the human animal bond. I believe in preventative medicine for animals with proper nutrition and exercise as the basis for optimal health. I enjoy educating animal lovers on a wide range of topics to help them maintain healthy animal companions in mind, body, and spirit.

I have dedicated the last 14 years of medical practice to an integrative veterinary clinic in Redmond, WA where I began combining western medicine with Chinese medicine and acupuncture. The addition of Chinese medicine theory which treats the whole patient, acknowledging a disease to be individual to their body and affect them both physically and spiritually, is when my passion for veterinary medicine really took hold. At Kingdom of Basil I provide care that helps my patients live their best life by focusing on supportive treatments to aid the body in healing itself.

Complementary to Western Medicine

Consultation and implementation of which therapies listed above will benefit your animal already being treated with drugs, surgery or chemotherapy/radiation. For example, patients being treated with Western Medicine for thyroid/kidney/liver disease, inflammatory bowel syndrome, Cushing’s disease, cancer, arthritis and other joint problems, or a combination of diseases, will greatly benefit from the addition of the therapies I offer. These therapies can also be used to wean off pharmaceutical drugs or avoid surgery when appropriate.
