If your vet has not had success in treating your pet. DO NOT WAIT. Call us. We have had great success in treating cases other vets do not have the experience in the diagnosing or treating the condition or the medical protocols for successfully addressing the condition. Many conditions will respond to modalities other than drugs, if treated early. 


Maternity and Post-Partem Issues

Many pets have difficulties in birthing their young. If your pet has been in labor for more than 2 hours, call us IMMEDIATELY! First pregancies are often problematic. Even after delivery, many babies fail to breathe on their own or nurse. 

Post-Partem infections can be fatal.

About Integrative Medicine


Integrative veterinary medicine is a comprehensive approach to animal care that combines the best of conventional medicine and complementary and alternative therapies.


Western medicine and nontraditional medicine are not mutually exclusive, and the integration of these practices is often extremely beneficial. The goals of both are the same: healing, maintaining a good quality of life for our patients, and disease prevention. This integrative approach to diagnostics and treatments gives our animal patients many more therapeutic options and can benefit animals from birth to their senior years.


Our veterinarian and technical staff are extensively trained in conventional, complementary and alternative medicine modalities. Our focus is on treating the whole animal, while establishing a partnership and therapeutic plan with you and your regular veterinarian to achieve optimal wellness for your animal.




With more than 50 years of experience, Dr. Tran is skilled in Western medical practice and has gained Extensive additional training in the Integrative Veterinary Medicine modalities listed on the Integrative Veterinary Medicine Pages following (see sidebar menu).
