  • Dr. Dodd is a compassionate, extremely knowledgeable, and thorough veterinarian that has guided me through my dog Jacob's arthritic elderly years. Since Jacob started acupuncture treatments, he gets up and hikes without a sign of pain.

  • With acupuncture Itty Bitty Kitty became the cat we knew and loved. He was able to run, jump, climb and play along with our other cats. It has been a year since we finished acupuncture treatments for Itty Bitty and I am happy to report he is still just as active and lively!
