ON RECOMMENDED VETS & CARE:
All Paws Veterinary Clinic, with the beloved Dr. Anne Reed, in Richmond, CA. An holistic vet who has worked wonders with my cats! Services include homeopathy, Chinese & Western herbs, acupuncture, etc. She has a waiting list, so call now :-) Dr. Holiday also offers her services here.
Margaret Holiday, DC. She is absolutely fantastic, a chiropractor and so much more!! Cats have those Looong spines, and often an adjustment can work wonders! She visits many vet clinics; I see her at East San Rafael Veterinary Clinic, 415-456-4465.
El Cerrito Veterinary Care, El Cerrito. Dr. Buttar opened his practice in the former Eye Care for Animals location. (Across from Down Home Music on San Pablo) He has over twenty years' experience, and I can't say enough good things about him! Great staff, compassionate, creative, and accessible. See his reviews on Yelp. A real find!
Abbey Pet Hospital, El Cerrito Two vets in this practice. I have worked with the owner, Dr. Judd. He's wonderful, as is his staff.
Richmond Veterinary Clinic
4704 Macdonald Ave. Richmond, CA 94805
Drs Kwon and Cho took over from my beloved Dr. Han. Western only but good. I had been working with Dr. Han for over forty years. I loved that he was interested in finding out about complementary treatments, not dismissive or resistant.
Gary Richter, DVM, Holistic Veterinary Care, 4382 Piedmont Ave., Oakland, CA 94611
He's a certified acupuncturist and chiropractor, among other things! My Archie visits his Hyperbaric Oxygen chamber!! For a slow-healing wound. He's amazing! His new book is too: The Ultimate Pet Health guide! Get it!
Creature Comfort Holistic Veterinary Center, in Oakland CA

Yay!! Still one more reason to foster!
