When holistic care is combined with the latest information available in the traditional veterinary realm, it truly does offer the best preventative and curative solutions.

Food Therapy For Animals

Food therapy is the art of customized diet plans to treat individual pets and prevent imbalance within the body.

Many factors go into determining the right food therapy meal plan for your cat or dog including unique inborn tendencies, age, species, geographical location, personality, and any current disharmony or disease process.

When food therapy is done right, there are no side effects and can be used for the entirety of your pet’s life.

Food therapy recipes can fall into 1 of the following 3 categories:

Health Promotion and Prevention—to improve health on a regular basis and to prevent seasonal and climate-related problems.

Disease Treatment—to directly treat clinical conditions, including skin problems, autoimmune diseases, and immunodeficiency.

Adjunct Therapy—to complement primary treatments (herbs or Western Medicine) of diseases such as otitis, urinary crystals and stones, UTI, IBD, CHF, cancer, renal failure, and liver failure​.

  • ​Health Promotion/Illness Prevention—The general overall health of your pet.
  • Active Treatment—As treatment for skin, autoimmune disease, and immunodeficiency.​
  • Complimentary Therapy—For pets with an illness such as cancer needing all treatment available.

Tui-na (Acupressure) For Pets

Tui-na is a form of Chinese medical-massage. In which different manipulations are applied to acupoints and Meridians to promote the circulation of Qi and correct imbalances within the organ systems. It is safe and effective.

*Please note: Dr. Steffen is certified in acupressure.

Ozone Therapy


Ozone is a naturally occurring atmospheric gas, but you may not have known that it has been studied and used in medicine for over 100 years.

We added ozone to our practice because, like many of our treatments, it is a natural treatment that goes after root causes instead of suppressing symptoms. It benefits a large number of conditions including allergies, joint disorders, wounds, ear infections and more. It may reduce or eliminate the need for medications and in some cases eliminate the need for surgery.

Medical Ozone increases oxygen utilization, reduces inflammation and improves immune system function allowing your pet to heal naturally.

Ayurvedic Medicine

Ayurvedic medicine, or ayurveda, is a healthy-lifestyle system that people in India have used for more than 5,000 years. Dr. Steffen is working with an Indian master of ayurvedic medicine to learn how to bring these same practices to dogs and cats.

Ayurvedic medicine emphasizes good health and prevention and treatment of illness through lifestyle practices (such as massage, meditation, yoga, and dietary changes) and the use of herbal remedies. All of these components of ayurvedic medicine align perfectly with Dr. Steffen’s holistic approach to pet health care.

Ayurvedic medicine incorporates doshas known as Vata, Pitta, and Kapha into holistic treatments. Doshas are believed to play a key part in defining your pet’s Ayurvedic constitution.
