opening Sept. 2015: Veterinary Holistic Center

Veterinary medicine is advancing at an amazing pace. And many exciting new therapies are available. These include acupuncture, alpha stim (similar to tens), injection of vitamin B12, chiropractic, energy healing, homeopathy, laser therapy, neoplasane therapy (for mast cell tumors), and more. Here's a great rundown from a center in Germantown.
