Dear Pet Parent,

Thank you for your interest in Heal! Our practice focus is to promote optimal quality of life for all pets and especially senior dogs and cats. We offer integrative medicine modalities including, physical rehabilitation, underwater treadmill, cold laser, aqua therapy, nutrition, acupuncture, and pain management. In addition, we provide post-operative and post-injury physical rehabilitation for all ages.

Routine Pet Healthcare and Your Regular Family Vet:

We work in partnership with your family veterinarian. All patients should maintain a relationship with their local family veterinarian for routine and urgent care, including regular checkups and dental care. We keep in close touch with your family veterinarian and will email a summary of your visits.

We do not provide routine or urgent veterinary care at Heal. We refer you to your family vet if  your pet needs x rays, lab work, dental cleaning, or surgery. We do not provide vaccination or nail trims.

However, if there are new issues or any setbacks, a new-issue assessment ($85) will be required in addition to the therapy visit.

Day of your appointment: Car-to-clinic pick up availableHuman caregivers may accompany a patient for any visit or they can drop-off.

Please arrive early enough so you have time to take a short walk so your pet can relax and use the bathroom before coming in the office.

You may text 530-539-4516 when you arrive. Please wait outside or in your car.

As soon as we are finished we will come out to meet you!

We usually run on time, so if you arrive early, please take a short walk until your scheduled appointment time. We do not have a waiting room in our office.

Dogs who will be using the underwater treadmill MUST eliminate before being allowed in the treadmill. Dogs with cough or diarrhea cannot use the treadmill.

Poop accidents in the treadmill shut it down for the remainder of the day and next day, so we have a “one strike you’re out” policy. A cleaning fee of $200 is charged.

Please be on time for your appointment as we do not have flexibility in our schedule to run overtime into the next appointment.

Please allow enough time to arrive and walk your dog before your appointment time.
