Meet Carrie Turner, DVM, CVA, CCRT……

 

That I would become a veterinarian was something I knew from a young age. My connection to and compassion for animals made me who I was, even as a child. Though I tried to write it off as a childhood whim, it was no surprise to my family that my windy career road ended in veterinary school.

Even in veterinary school, I was intrigued by holistic modalities like acupuncture. But it was not until after several years of conventional practice that I realized that while amazing in certain situations, Western medicine was lacking in options for animals with chronic illness and mobility decline. I made it my goal to find a practice that embraced this population of elderly and often quietly suffering animals to give pet parents a way to help their beloved pets.

That I would become a veterinarian was something I knew from a young age. My connection to and compassion for animals made me who I was, even as a child. Though I tried to write it off as a childhood whim, it was no surprise to my family that my windy career road ended in veterinary school.

Even in veterinary school, I was intrigued by holistic modalities like acupuncture. But it was not until after several years of conventional practice that I realized how lacking Western medicine was for animals with chronic illness and mobility decline. I made it my goal to find a practice that embraced this population of elderly and often quietly suffering animals to give pet parents more options to help their beloved pets.

In 2012, I studied acupuncture with the leading teacher of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), Dr. Shen Xie, at the Chi Institute of TCVM in Reddick, FL. I went on to study veterinary food therapy and herbal medicine, also branches of TCVM.

Next, I went back to Western conventional medicine and added canine rehabilitation training to my practice. I sought more knowledge about soft tissue injury, neurology, and orthopedic injury since I saw many cases in these categories. I trained with the surgeons and physical therapists of the Canine Rehabilitation Institute to become a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT) in 2017.

I continue to learn every day from each patient and through formal trainings to provide the best care I possibly can to my animal patients. Dr. Xie says we should never stop learning from our clients and patients, they all have something to teach us. I believe that too, and that’s why I spend a lot time with each patient to learn their full story and really get to know the animals and their families. Our typical appointments are 30 minutes to an hour. I have lots of holistic options to offer, but not every modality is right for every pet. It’s important to tailor our therapies to each patient and client for healing to occur.

At Heal, we strive to listen to your story, to embrace the human-animal bond, and to provide compassionate care that empowers animals to live their best and longest life possible. We hope this website helps you understand the holistic options available to help your pets.

I have had a deep bond and love for animals my entire life, growing up with cats and adding dogs to the mix in my adult life. I always felt I could connect with animals on a deeper level and enjoy getting to know those who take a bit longer to warm up – this was true in my career as a pediatric physical therapist as well.

I went to Boston University for physical therapy and entered the field as a pediatric therapist in 2003, a dream job that took me all over the San Francisco Bay Area. After 6-7 years, I stumbled upon a job posting for a physical therapist at a veterinary specialty practice. Following my intuition, I found myself in another dream job, pairing the art of physical therapy with my love for animals. Beginning in 2009, I helped to expand physical rehabilitation at Sage Veterinary Centers (San Mateo – now Redwood City, and Campbell, CA) into two full-time very busy departments. I thoroughly enjoyed working alongside some of the top specialists in their fields, learning about all aspects of veterinary medicine and how physical rehabilitation can compliment each service. It has been absolutely wonderful to help this rapidly growing field flourish in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I am excited to bring my knowledge and expertise to the Tahoe region. I embrace an integrative approach to medicine for both my animals and myself, and I feel this pairing with Dr. Turner is a wonderful fit.

Some of my particular skills lie in manual therapy, including myofascial release and craniosacral therapy, which are gentle techniques to help balance and align the body for optimal function and pain relief. I bring a creative, gentle, and fun approach to working with animals, much like working with kids. Therapy should be fun for everyone, especially the pets! I love bracing and prosthetics, complicated neurological cases, anything in the water, and especially senior pets.

My animals are such an important part of my family, and I want to help your furry family members enjoy their life with you. From working with senior pets to keep them limber and mobile, to those recovering from injury or more complicated neurological conditions, it is my honor to be part of that journey along with your family. I invite you to be part of your pet’s rehab sessions and will work with you to make the “homework” fun and manageable. We will take the goals that are important to you and your pets and work together to maximize quality of life, relieve pain, and have some fun!

When I’m not working with animals or people, you can find me with my dogs at the beach in San Francisco – I’ll have to find some good secluded beaches, feel free to make suggestions! I’m usually training for some triathlon, with Ironman Ireland and Wales coming up in 2019, so out and about in nature on bike and foot! I look forward to exploring everything Tahoe has to offer in its magic and beauty. I am owned by two dogs, an Australian Cattle Dog and cattle dog/hound mix, and three cats.
