The Integrative Veterinary Center (IVC) was established in 2000 by Dr. Signe Beebe. IVC is dedicated to providing the highest quality veterinary care through the integration of alternative and complementary medicine with conventional medicine.
At IVC, we believe that using a combination of all reasonable therapies or systems of medicine together provides the veterinarian with an increased ability to prevent and treat disease that would not be possible using one system of medicine by itself. This type of veterinary care focuses on evaluation of the whole animal and on the prevention of disease and maintenance of health, not just on the treatment of disease, and the suppression of symptoms.
An integrative approach to veterinary medicine is designed to improve the likelihood of resolving an animal’s underlying disease condition, prevent or minimize adverse drug effects, maximize successful treatment outcomes and improve the quality of life. As our client, you are given all of the available options for the treatment of your pet.
The veterinarians of IVC are extensively trained in both conventional and complementary and alternative medicine and can effectively treat any of the medical conditions normally seen in regular veterinary practice. By using a combination of Western medicine diagnostics and drugs with acupuncture, chiropractic and herbal medicine we have a wide array of tools we can use to help resolve your pets medical problems and promote an excellent quality of life.
WHAT WE CAN DO
We can help formulate individual pet nutrition and wellness plans to promote optimal health and prevent disease from developing. We have used feng shui principles to enhance our center, which has three spacious exam rooms with a calm and quiet atmosphere. The water fountains, cushioned exam tables, chimes, plants and classical music help your pet to relax and promote maximal healing.
Please feel free to stop by and make an appointment for a tour of our center by one of our friendly staff members. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. Our compassionate, dedicated team of professionals is ready to assist you and your pet.
