The Well Dog Place

Consultations and Holistic Wellness Products

The Well Dog Place is not a Veterinary Office.  We do not offer traditional veterinary services (exams, vaccinations, hospitalization, diagnostics, treatments, medications or prescriptions).
We are pleased to offer an alternative to the traditional veterinary experience. Rather than a sterile office experience, we offer in-depth, one-on-one consultations with you, without your dog, to formulate a comprehensive holistic program that consider your dog’s total health in the context of their newly diagnosed condition. We focus on the diagnostic work that has already been done, help you understand that information as well as our holistic health plan to meet your dog’s total health needs. We provide the Chinese herbs, essential oils, nutritional plans, and supplements necessary to manage your dog’s condition and promote their optimum health.
We also offer health and nutritional guidance consultations for owners of new puppies!

My thoughts about veterinary medicine...

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.
