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. *

FEES:

• Initial visit: $135 (herbal formulas and supplements cost extra).

• Repeat acupuncture: $105

• Cancer treatment: (1-3 acupoints) $65, with treatments recommended monthly.

• Repeat Laser: $65-$105 depending upon complexity of treatment.

*Please bring samples of anything your pet eats, or a list of ingredients. Also bring any supplements and medications used.

Holistic & Therapeutic Care

HOLISTIC & THERAPEUTIC
CARE

As veterinarians trained in both western and eastern medicine, we offer a holistic approach. We treat the physical body and the nonphysical emotions as well.

COLD LASER THERAPY

COLD LASER
THERAPY

Low level laser, or cold laser, is used in two ways: 1) to treat acupoints in animals that do not like needles, and 2) to treat joint pain. Cold laser therapy increases circulation, stimulates wound healing, reduces inflammation, and relieves pain.

ACUPUNCTURE

ACUPUNCTURE

Stimulation of acupoints with needles cause the release of chemicals from the body’s pharmacy. It brings about an increase in the circulation of blood, relieves pain, improves organ function, and calms the mind.

HERBAL MEDICINE

HERBAL MEDICINE

Chinese herbal formulas have been used for thousands of years. We have over 20 years of experience using these medications in daily practice.

WHOLE FOOD THERAPY

WHOLE FOOD THERAPY

Food is medicine. Each nutrient has energetic properties that may warm, cool, drain damp, moisten, move blood, or increase energy. We are certified veterinary food therapists with the Chi Institute of Chinese Medicine.

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.
