When I graduated from veterinary school I thought the goal of all health professionals should be to promote wellness and ultimately put themselves out of business. But my many decades in veterinary practice have found that our profession is focused primarily on the ill patient, not on promoting wellness and preventing illness. I think we have taught our clients to view veterinary medicine the same way.
I still believe in my original goal. That is why I opened THE WELL DOG PLACE.
I built the practice around hour long appointments so I can take the time it takes to focus on nutrition and safe, proactive alternative therapies. We already see this helping to reduce the need for traditional veterinary services, which of course saves you money. But more importantly, by doing these things that have the greatest impact on dogs' overall health, you and I can keep them at peak health well into their geriatric years.
But the reality is that dogs do become ill and need medical care. We take a more holistic, integrative approach and mix traditional medicine with alternative Chinese and Western herbs, essential oils, targeted supplements, cold laser therapies and surgical alternatives. I want to minimize adverse side effects and maximize the quality of life for ill patients.
If your dog is a member of your family, then you will feel right at home at The Well Dog Place. We serve loving dog parents from all over Southern California. Together, we can make each day more energetic and extend the years you have with your family’s best friend.
