Holistic Options

Although we still do offer modern veterinary services. We also provide holistic and alternative modalities for your pet. From supplements for supportive and for certain pets, physical therapy as an alternate route for some surgeries.

Rehabilitation

Just as with people, pets need physical therapy as well! As a possible option to delay or avoid surgery or even for after surgery support, we can provide for your pet. Our location has an onsite underwater treadmill as well as other modalities to contribute to physical therapy.

 Jayne started on her path towards veterinary care at the age of 18 working as a kennel technician, which ignited her love for animals. She graduated from Median School of Allied Health Careers in 1993. Her externship was done at the University of Pittsburgh, which led to work in research for 6 years with a multitude of different species including: pigs, sheep, primates, rabbits, & rodents. At that point she took some time off to spend with her two sons. Jayne then turned her career to focus on companion animals. She believes every pet should be treated as a member of the family. Her passion for helping parents keep their multi-legged children healthy is flamed by engaging with clients and educating them.
