Since I was very young, I’ve had a strong connection with animals and knew that my calling was veterinary medicine. I have always been drawn to integrative healing and during middle school I was introduced to Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) through my beloved horse’s battle with cancer. I found a wonderful mentor and briefly began my studies in TCVM in high school. After graduating veterinary school and working for several years, I found that I wanted to offer my patients the benefits of TCVM and other holistic healing methods in addition to the best Western medical care I could offer, and resumed my study of TCVM, receiving my acupuncture certification in 2013. I also have a strong interest and background in a fear free approach to care and am Fear Free certified. Additionally I have advanced Chinese Herbal training, and frequently use herbs in addition to Western medications to treat a variety of conditions.
Each patient and situation are unique, and I believe the best outcomes come by taking advantage of the strengths of both TCVM and Western medicine together, in an integrative approach to health and wellness for our four-legged friends. TCVM works wonderfully as an adjunct therapy to traditional treatment for endocrine diseases, cancers, musculoskeletal conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, dermatological issues, auto-immune and inflammatory conditions, neurological diseases, and many others.
I also have training in rehabilitation for small animals. My focus in rehabilitation is to restore and maintain functional mobility, to build and maintain strength, and help our animals do more of what they love with less pain. While I do not perform casting for custom orthopedic devices, I am happy to help with cart fittings if needed.
I currently offer acupuncture, herbal therapy, laser, and rehabilitation including therapeutic exercises. I am happy to treat dogs, cats, rabbits, and pocket pets.
I look forward to meeting you and your pet and being part of their care team!
