The best approach for your pet
In deciding the best treatment approach for an animal, Rae may work with veterinarians as it is important to her to take the most comprehensive integrative approach and develop a therapeutic plan suitable for that particular animal. In many cases Rae will incorporate other Chinese therapies, along with acupuncture, into her treatment plan.
