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

Chinese Acupuncture, Herbology and Therapeutic Laser

Chinese Acupuncture and Herbology have been used for thousands of years in the Eastern countries.  When combined with diet, life style and breathing exercises it forms a complete medical system that has been amazingly effective even from our western point of view.  When one combines the ancient art of Chinese medicine with the western world of high tech diagnostics and medicines, one is presented with a very large "tool box" with which to diagnose and treat.  The diagnostics used in Chinese medicine sound very strange to the Western mind.  Without all the scientific knowledge we have now, they designed a very thorough system of observation of a patient, and then compared what they saw to things in nature that they understood.  For a very simple example, if someone has a fever, the diagnosis would be "Heat", which clearly leads one to a treatment recommendation of "Cool".  That might be

Gateway Animal Hospital
Jessica and Russ from Redding

People often ask where I take my pets and I always tell them about VCA Gateway Animal Hospital. "Oh my, why go all the way to Anderson for a vet?" is what they say. "Because they're worth every penny in gas!" Dr. Sue was the first vet that saw my dogs over 10 years ago. Dr. Joy put my pet rat to sleep and cried with me. Dr. Tom did surgery on a friend's dog that broke her hip. Dr. Jean just spent over an hour talking to my boyfriend about his German Shepherd and how she is with other vets. Why do we drive out of our way to go to Gateway? Because not only are the veterinarians amazing, so are the vet techs. Kameron worked with our dog today and it was a great experience for all. The receptionists as soon as you walk in the door are always kind and friendly. A familiar face at the front desk is always comforting and Rachael has been there a long time. I have a friend that brings her dog 2.5 hours from Sacramento to keep going to Dr. Jean, Dr. Joy and Dr. Sue. My parents take all there dogs there. We work with rescue dogs and these veterinarians know that we cannot always predict how a rescue dog will react. Thank you to our veterinarians for taking such good care of our beloved pets. From our guinea pigs and rats, to dog and cats! We love you guys!
