HOLISTIC PET CARE

SERVICES

Holistic Pet Care is both traditional and alternative medicine along with good nutrition and an emphasis on quality of life.

I am now seeing patients at my new holistic center at 114 Massachusetts Avenue in Arlington. Please call me to make an appointment!

ACUPUNCTURE
Acupuncture can be helpful for many painful conditions and chronic diseases, including arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and even cancer.

HERBAL MEDICINE
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicines tend to have fewer side effects than conventional medicines and can offer relief to many conditions.

NUTRITION
Good nutrition is key for optimal health.   I can advise you on quality manufactured pet food or cooking customized food for your pet.

COLD LASER
Cold Laser treatment is also great for pain and inflammation.  It’s non-invasive, well tolerated, and fast.  I use it to supplement acupuncture for those with substantial arthritis, in place of acupuncture for patients who don’t tolerate needles, and on “hard to reach” acupuncture points.

QUALITY OF LIFE COUNSELING
There are times when you need support in making sure you’re maintaining a great quality of life for your pet.  I’ll help you with that.

PALLIATIVE CARE
Sometimes it’s not possible to cure a particular disease.  Then the goal becomes comfort and medical management, including pain management, environment manage- ment, and understandable expectations.

GRIEF COUNSELING
Life without our pets is often disorienting and overwhelming. Having someone to talk to who truly understands your grief, loss, and confusion, can help.
