Holistic Veterinary Care


**** Free Phone Consultation with Dr. Richter ****

Holistic health care for pets can take many forms. Deciding what treatment modalities will best serve the individual animal can be a difficult decision for pet owners. Many people who are interested in holistic care for their pets contact us without knowing exactly what their pet needs.

Dr Richter is happy to provide an initial telephone consultation at no charge to people who are investigating holistic care for their pets.

We want everyone’s experience at Holistic Veterinary Care to be both positive and productive. The best way to ensure this is to discuss the specifics of an individual pet’s needs prior to their first visit. By doing this, we are able to connect you and your pet with the health care provider(s) that are best able to address your pet’s needs.

If you would like to speak with Dr. Richter prior to bringing your pet in, please contact our office at 510/339/2600. Our reception staff will schedule a time for Dr. Richter to get in touch with you and discuss your pet’s needs.

Bay Area residents enjoy the best of the best in many aspects of our lifestyle. Great outdoor activities, fantastic food, creative culture and high caliber health care are all benefits of living here. One of the secrets to getting the most out of the Bay Area is knowing where to find and how to access the best of everything. This is certainly true for health and wellness care for every member of the family.

Many of us have more than one health care provider for ourselves and for our family members. We go to our physician for regular checkups and when the need arises, but our physicians are not always who we turn to for our “wellness” care. Holistic Veterinary Care was created so pet owners would have another resource to turn to for help keeping our furry friends happy and healthy.

Our staff is made up of professionals in the fields of veterinary medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic, homeopathy and physical rehabilitation. We are here to guide you through any questions you may have regarding how to best care for your pets during both good times and challenging times. Our goal is to provide your pets with comprehensive wellness care through all stages of their lives.

Achieve Balance - In Your Pet's Body & Its Care
Holistic Veterinary Care brings balance to the whole body with techniques such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, chiropractic, Pulsed Signal Therapy and nutritional counseling. Animals can experience meaningful improvement and deep healing that reaches the root of the problem - all through natural means with no side effects. And even when disease is not completely eliminated, oftentimes pets can enjoy vastly more comfortable and carefree lives through holistic treatment.

Holistic medicine can often help when conventional treatment is unwanted or unsuccessful.

Neither Western medicine nor holistic care is the answer to every health problem. Where one is unsuccessful, the other often excels. They key is striking a balance and successfully integrating the two.
