Dear clients and friends,

Spring is upon us again, a time for renewal and growth. Over the past six months, our clinic has, with the help of the Center for Equity and Inclusion, metaphorically tilled the ground, fertilized the soil and planted seeds for our continued growth as a team. In addition to some changes in personnel and work schedules, we look forward to continuing building community with each other and our clients, and to strive for providing compassionate holistic veterinary care in an equitable work environment.

Every year in early spring our team gets together to celebrate Lunar New Year. This year we had a great time at Baerlic Brewery, sharing food and having fun playing Pictionary.


Wishing you and your furry companions a happy springtime,  

Dr. Conny, Dr. Ingrid, Wendi, Molly, Cathy, Clarissa, Lisa, and Carolyn

Canine Influenza Virus: Information for Dog Owners
"Practically speaking, if your dog stays at home and rarely contacts other dogs, its risk of contracting the virus is likely low. If your dog is boarded, goes to day care, or the dog park, it may be at a higher risk."

Diversity Issues in Veterinary Medicine  - A Student Perspective
In 2013, The Atlantic named the veterinary profession the “whitest profession” in the United States. The article asks some really important questions from a student perspective, for example: "What is it like to be in a room and see no one who looks like you? Can this have an affect on your veterinary education?"

How Laser Therapy Works

Your pets likely had Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) at our clinic if they have had surgery, an injury or they don't tolerate acupuncture needles.

LLLT, also known as photobiomodulation, is a painless treatment that uses clinically tested wavelengths of light to stimulate natural biological processes leading to faster healing and pain relief. Like plants absorbing sunlight through photosynthesis, cells in the body absorb laser energy that stimulates the body to release pain relieving compounds, increases circulation and energizes the cells to participate in the healing process.  LLLT can also be used instead of acupuncture needles to sedate or stimulate acupuncture points. There are no side effects and many times laser therapy can take the place of pharmaceuticals to treat long-term, degenerative diseases.
