WELCOME

We are a holistic veterinary clinic providing excellent holistic and integrated veterinary care primarily for dogs and cats, and more recently small exotics. Our focus is on keeping your pet healthy and promoting quality of life.

Treatments

  • Holistic
  • Integrative
  • Conventional

Acupuncture is an Oriental treatment which has been used for over 4,000 years to prevent and diagnose many types of disease, provide pain control and encourage the body to heal itself. Fine needles are inserted into specific points of the body that are connected with the central nervous system and that trigger a desired physiological response. The process is mostly painless, usually only with some minor discomfort as the needle passes through the skin. We use acupuncture for some major conditions, including musculoskeletal problems, chronic degenerative diseases, allergies, asthma, kidney failure or depressed immune system function. Acupuncture is a healthy alternative to conventional treatments of various anti-inflammatory agents, which are known to have major side effects, or the risks associated with surgery.

Veterinary Holistic Care offers dental cleanings with and without sedation.

Anesthesia is usually necessary to achieve the most complete dental cleaning and examination of your pet’s teeth possible.  However, for many mild and moderate levels of dental disease, a non-anesthetic dental cleaning can give your pet a head start in long-term dental care, provide you with the education needed to maintain your pet’s teeth at home, and lessen the time needed under future anesthesia.   The HOUNDSTOOTH Veterinary Dental Service visits our clinic approximately every 6 months to provide our clients with thorough dental education and instruction as well as a basic dental cleaning without anesthesia.  Houndstooth performs gentle drug-free plaque and tartar removal with plenty of kindness.

Additionally, our doctors perform full dental cleanings, treatment for advanced stages of periodontal disease, and minor dental procedures under minimal anesthesia.  When it is time for your pet’s anesthetic dental, VHC uses special electroacupuncture techniques to lower the drug doses, reduce pain, and speed recovery safely.

We also provide dental surgery.

Digital x-ray imaging has revolutionized diagnostic radiology.

We utilize a modern digital x-ray system for maximum efficiency and lower radiation doses that also provides the highest resolution digital radiographic image available. Bulky, large x-ray printouts are no longer needed. An electronic copy of your pet’s x-ray will be stored in a computer file and can, as needed, also be stored on CD.
