Heal was founded by Dr. Carrie Turner in 2016 to provide innovative and compassionate holistic health and wellness options to dogs and cats.
After several years of conventional practice, Dr. Turner realized that Western medicine was lacking in options for animals with chronic illness, cancer, and mobility decline. She made it her goal to create a practice that embraced this population of underserved animals so they can live their best lives.
Dr. Turner’s integrative focus combines Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), canine rehabilitation therapy, nutrition, and conventional Western Medicine for a natural path to health.
Heal Gives Back
Giving Back - Tahoe Tails and Trails Rescue Sanctuary
As an advocate for senior animals, Heal partners with Tahoe Tails and Trails Rescue to provide integrative care for senior rescue dogs awaiting homes or living at the sanctuary.
Tango (pictured above) is a paralyzed senior dog who was removed from a shelter situation by TTTR. Heal donated rehabilitation, underwater treadmill therapy, acupuncture, laser and the other medical care he needed . Tango was exhausted and depressed when we met him. Today he is spunky and loves to play fetch in his wheels.
Heal has donated care to nine senior rescue dogs to date and looks forward to helping more. TTTR is a 501 (c) 3 charity and accepts donations here. Please consider donating to TTTR so they can continue to remove senior dogs with disabilities from shelter environments.
Giving Back -- Adopt -A-Senior Program
To promote the adoption of disabled, injured or ill senior pets from shelters, Heal started an Adopt-a-Senior program. This program provides need-based care to disabled or injured senior pets, 10 and older, who have been recently adopted into a local family from a shelter. Dogs or cats must have a diagnosed chronic illness, cancer, or mobility issues that would benefit from the integrative or rehabilitative care Heal provides. If you are interested in this program, please contact Dr. Turner for more information.
Giving Back -- First Responders, Military Families, and Working Dogs
Heal supports this community by providing discounted care and support for pets in need that are owned by people who are either military families, first responders, or working dogs in a first responder capacity. Please contact Dr. Turner for more information if you are interested in this program.
Dr. Turner invited the Kirkwood Rescue Avalanche Dog group to the clinic to practice some injury prevention techniques for these amazing canine athletes and their dedicated humans.
