“We live far away but a friend recommended this clinic to us. It was worth the trip and my dog is much better now. The staff and doctors here are so amazing. We’ve been to many vets and I’ve never felt this taken care of.
Dr. Chan followed up with us the day of and after. I’m so happy we finally found a trustworthy, clean and professional veterinary hospital!”

We have moved around a bit since then and are now driving for an hour each way to Dr. Clark! I would not trust anyone other than Dr. Clark and his team to take care of my beautiful little girl!"

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), although relatively new to the Western world, is a medical system that has been used in China to treat animals for thousands of years. It is an adaptation and extension of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) used to treat humans. Speaking broadly, Chinese Medicine is a complete body of thought and practice grounded in Chinese Daoist philosophy. Though it can be traced back over two millennia in recorded history, it continues to evolve today like any medical system. Current research on acupuncture and herbal medicine is beginning to shed light on its mechanism of action.
