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.

Alternative medicine is currently offered in our Concord hospital with Dr. Micki McCabe, in Dublin with Dr. Abbie Whitehead, and in Redwood City with Dr. Jennifer Martin.
