The Animal Wellness Center focuses on the overall wellness of the companion animal, unlike the typical reactionary approach of veterinary medicine to merely treat symptoms in a vacuum. Dr. Haivilicz and her team combine cutting edge modern technology with traditional Chinese veterinary medicine to create a new comprehensive approach to animal medicine.
