Dr. Toolan will customize an individual plan for your pet depending on their specific issues or diseases.
Dr. Toolan’s philosophy is to provide care for your loved ones as if they were her own. Her goal is to keep your friend with your family for as long as possible with the best quality of life possible.
In our goal to achieve renewed balance to your pet, we provide all four branches of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.
Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice that is now commonly used in the veterinary treatment of animals. It can be successfully combined with conventional veterinary medicine to enlist the patient’s natural healing mechanisms.
Herbal medicine has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of medical conditions including gastrointestinal, respiratory, musculoskeletal, endocrine, cardiovascular, dermatological and cancers.
Chinese Therapeutic Massage is used in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) to enhance the effects of the other branches of acupuncture and herbal medicine to treat and prevent disease by tonifying areas that are deficient and sedating areas that are in excess.
Food Therapy is the use of foods to help potentiate or enhance the effects of acupuncture and herbal medicine to treat and prevent disease.
In TCVM, Food Therapy is used to help balance the body’s energy.
