About Our Services
We spend 90 minutes on your initial visit. This includes gathering a medical history (with any x-rays and laboratory test), and questions about your pet’s personality. We examine the animal’s tongue, gums, eyes, ears, nose, skin, and feel the acupoints, joints, abdomen, and limbs as required to check for pain and any abnormalities. We may listen to the heart and lungs, and take a temperature if needed. From this information we make a traditional Chinese veterinary medical pattern diagnosis. An animal’s pattern describes the imbalance to treat. Treatment may include acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, and/or cold laser therapy. We also discuss diet and make food recommendations to treat the pattern imbalance. The animal’s pulses tell us a great deal. We use the pulses to guide us in determining the best herbal formulas, foods, medications, and supplements, and we prescribe these accordingly. *
• Initial visit: $135 (herbal formulas and supplements cost extra).
• Repeat acupuncture: $105

*Please bring samples of anything your pet eats, or a list of ingredients. Also bring any supplements and medications used.
The Spiritual Nature of Animals: A Country Vet Explores the Wisdom, Compassion, and Souls of Animals
For more than 20 years, Dr Stange has studied what the world’s religious, scientific, and spiritual teachings say about animals in order to better understand their spiritual nature. In addition, she has gathered information from the animals themselves while working as an ambulatory veterinarian in southwestern Colorado. She consolidated the information from her fascinating journey into a memoir that has been published by New World Library.
The goal of this book is to better understand the non-physical makeup of animals for the highest good of animal care, the human-animal bond, and the well-being of all concerned.
