Health & Wellness

Your animals might be pets, or they might be high performance working animals (or both!). Dogs participate in herding, hunting, agility, tracking, or showing as a few examples. Horses might be used for trail riding, jumping, dressage, cutting, reining, etc. These activities are taxing to the body, and performance animals benefit from special attention to diet, exercise and adjunct therapies such as acupuncture, massage and chiropractic adjustment. I will work with you to help your animals reach their potential.

Non-working pet animals benefit from the same attention to diet, exercise, and environmental influences on their health. Indoor cats and lap dogs need special attention to their environment to ensure they get enough activity and mental stimulation. They need a healthy, lower calorie diet to prevent obesity and the problems that follow.

My practice also addresses the needs of senior and geriatric animals. These special “oldsters” are near and dear to my heart, and I really enjoy helping them get the most out of their “golden years.” Many senior animals have problems related to eating, pain, mobility, and general comfort. I can address these issues to provide the highest level of performance and the best quality of life for as long as possible.
