Offering Expanded Holistic Pet Care Through Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Alternative Medical Treatments

bull-dog-shea-animal-hospitalSometimes, conventional veterinary practices don’t offer treatment options that can cure pets or relieve their symptoms. So at Shea Animal Hospital, we give pet owners the opportunity to explore alternative approaches in veterinary medicine.

In addition to her education and experience practicing traditional veterinary medicine, Dr. Desiree Garthe also practices alternative medical approaches. She studied Chinese herbal medicine at the Chi Institute in Gainesville, Fla., and is a certified acupuncturist. Depending upon your preferences and your pet’s medical needs, Dr. Garthe can employ an integrated approach in providing top quality medical care.

Shea Animal Hospital is dedicated to helping your pet live a healthy, happy life. Please contact us today with your questions or concerns, or to schedule an exam.
