New Clients

Welcome to All God’s Creatures Holistic Healthcare! We like to take a different approach to veterinary medicine that you may not find in your common veterinarian.

We do practice and utilize western medicine and we augment this with effective eastern techniques, therapies and medicines to help your furry family member in every way possible.

If you are a new client or a returning client, please read below so you can see what to expect at your appointment. Of course, if you have any questions at all, you can give us a call!

Holistic Appointments

At your pet’s first holistic appointment we will sit down with you and discuss your concerns with your pet’s health status. We will assess your pet through a full and thorough Chinese Holistic exam. With the findings we’ll make a recommendation “Plan” for your pet that will list out all the possible treatments and what we feel needs to be first, second, third and even later down the road. The plan may include holistic treatment and/ or modern medicine.

We will do our best to make sure your concerns are heard and addressed at the deepest possible level. As pet owners ourselves, we understand the emotion and stress involved when a pet is sick or in pain.

General Holistic Consultations usually take about an hour.

Holistic Consultations with Acupuncture can take up to an hour and a half.

Chiropractic Appointments

At your pet’s first visit with the chiropractor, the doctor will discuss your pet’s history, and the issues that brought you and your pet to the clinic. If you are unfamiliar with chiropractic technique, feel free to ask the doctor to explain exactly what chiropractic can do and how it will help your pet prior to the adjustments.

Chiropractic adjustments can take from 15- 20 minutes.

Due to Indiana State Law – all animals must have a veterinary referral from a licensed veterinarian before being seen by a chiropractor. You may have your primary veterinarian fill out the referral form (below) and fax or email the form to us. If you do not have a veterinary referral prior to your pet appointment with the chiropractor, the veterinarian here at the clinic can examine you pet to give the referral.

What to bring with you

Please bring your pets records from your primary veterinarian, any supplements and medications that your pet is taking, as well as a list of foods and treats they are eating.

If your pet has radiographs that are related to the current issues, please have your current veterinarian email them prior to your visit or if they are on a CD bring that along at the time of your visit.

To minimize you and your pet’s wait time here in the office, please complete the New Client, New Patient and the Pet Personality Chart and bring them with you to the appointment. If you can not complete these prior to coming to your appointment please arrive 10- 15 minutes before your appointment time to fill the forms out.

What to do after your appointment

Holistic care can be time consuming and is most effective when you the owner is active in the healing process. Please keep a close eye on your pets physical and emotional status in the period of time following your appointment. Some owners find it helpful to keep a schedule or journal so they can write down observations, improvements and check off that medications were given. Holistic treatments gradually bring the animal’s body back into balance, so even subtle signs of changes – good or bad – can be meaningful to your holistic doctor.
