Caring for pets... and their people, too.

The Veterinarians and staff of the VCA Animal Healing Center are here to restore and maintain your pet's health through a combination of the highest-quality holistic medicine, conventional medicine and surgery. We will always treat your pet as if they were our own with compassion and dignity. We are committed to respecting every person and animal who comes through our door, and providing kind and individualized care, along with open and honest communication.

We are excited to offer you a new procedure called stem cell therapy for arthritis and ligament injuries!

This concept fits right in with holistic medicine as it involves using your pet's own fat cells to heal cartilage, tendons, and arthritic joints. Stem cells are a cell that can become any cell type depending on where they are placed in the body. Surprisingly, fat has the greatest number of "precursor" cells than any other tissue in the body.

Here's how it works:

Can't Find Better Than Dr. Marx and Staff
LaKeshia Snyder from Bangor

We want to say a HUGE “thank you” to Dr. Marx and her fantastic staff. Our 7 year old Doberman, Dusty, suffered from a torn ACL and despite numerous types of treatments, 2 surgeries on his knee and being on all sorts of supplements, pain medications and NSAIDs, he still refused to use his leg. Our hearts were broken as we watched him hop along in pain for an entire year and saw how broken his spirit was. We had been to Dr. Marx previously, so when we heard about goldwire implants, we trusted her opinion that we should give it a shot. Literally, Dusty hopped into the Animal Healing Center on 3 legs and walked out using all 4 of his legs (already starting to bear weight on his bad leg). He continued to improve and is bearing full weight on his leg now, in just a few short months AND he has not had a single dose of anti-inflammatory meds since the implants! In addition to the obvious physical improvement, he is also in much better spirits now. He’s back to the happy boy we knew before his knee problems. We cannot begin to express our gratitude to Dr. Marx. She is a brilliant doctor and so very compassionate. Truly the only veterinarian that we don’t have to drag the dogs into! Dusty loves Dr. Marx and her assistant, Tina, and they are excellent at handling the dogs. We are also very thankful for Tobi, the friendly face behind the desk and on the other end of the telephone. The Animal Healing Center is nearly 2 hours from our house but we gladly make the trip because they are the only place that we can say we truly trust with our furry family!
