altmedicine-sageSAGE offers acupuncture and herbal support in an integrative blending of Eastern and Western veterinary medicine. Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) offers the benefit of gentle “balancing” techniques that have been used for thousands of years. By integrating TCVM with a Western basis, our patients benefit from modern diagnostics and therapy, along with ancient, time-tested techniques. Acupuncture and herbal therapy have been shown to be beneficial in many situations, including pain management, asthma treatment, chemotherapy side effects (nausea, anorexia), endocrine disease, and other systemic disorders.

Chiropractic evaluations and adjustments for dogs and cats are also available in our Dublin facility. Possible indications for chiro­practic evaluation include reluctance or difficulty when climbing stairs or jumping, sitting on one hip or “puppy sitting,” and changes in gait.

Acupuncture and additional alternative medicine services are currently offered in Concord with Dr. Micki McCabe, in Dublin with Dr. Abbie Whitehead and in Redwood City with Dr. Jennifer Martin.  Chiropractic care is also offered by Dr. Abbie Whitehead at our Dublin location.
