  • "My wonderful French Bulldog "Roxi" had become paralyzed 3 months ago. She could not even urinate on her own. Diagnosis IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease) With careful care and acupuncture we were able to avoid the expensive and invasive surgery normally performed on this condition.

Everyone there takes the time to greet my girl with patience, love and respect. My dog is excited to be there for her appointments. They all show a genuine devotion to careful healing. I couldn't be happier with their service."
