Traditional Western medicine can be the right option for your pet in some situations, but sometimes there are less-invasive, more traditional methods of healing available. Often, these can make your pet happier and more comfortable. When you visit our veterinary hospital in South San Diego, we will show you all the possibilities and help you make the best choice for your dog or cat.

Each and every member of our veterinary team truly cares about animals, and you will be able to tell from the moment you walk through the doors of our pet hospital. When you meet personally with a caring veterinarian, there will be no question that we want the best for your pet - physically AND emotionally. Our pet vet, Dr. Jacque McAndrew, has the unique ability to calm almost any pet during examination, even if the animal is anxious, hurt or scared. Then, she will bring out books and research to help you decide on a treatment plan.

One of the best things about living in the South San Diego area is a culture that's invested in fully integrated, holistic living. You wouldn't want to ingest poisons or undergo harsh, unnecessary medical treatment, and you don't want that for your pet either. When you entrust us with your animal's care, we'll show you another way. Whether it is laser therapy, acupuncture, orthopedic treatments, allergy relief techniques or the emerging veterinary method of gemmotherapy, holistic animal care is possible. Often, we use these techniques hand in hand with Western methods including antibiotics, X-rays and surgery.

We offer natural treatments and options right in our pet clinic, including SuziSnacks homemade liver treats and the renowned ThunderShirt for non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive treatment of dog and cat anxiety.

We invite you to call our veterinary clinic today to schedule an appointment or to learn more about our services. For first time visitors, be sure to claim your $10 discount coupon and find out the information we need from you here.
