what you can expect

Your pet will be evaluated and treated from a holistic perspective. The first step to restoring you pet to his or her best possible health is a complete physical examination.

I will perform a thorough Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medical (TCVM) exam in addition to a Traditional Western veterinary examination. The TCVM exam consists of inspecting, hearing, smelling, inquiring, and palpating. An unfortunate result of developing medical technologies is that some practitioners rely more on test results than the art of medicine and physical exams. As one my professors in vet school told me, “treat the dog, not the X-Ray.”
