Holistic House Call Services for Dogs & Cats

With over 18 years experience, Dr Truli can diagnose and manage most conditions completely in the house call setting. Some conditions need hospitalization in order to stabilize a pet in the early stages of the illness. Some pets may need periodic hospitalization to optimize their over-all recovery and help them rebalance from temporary setbacks. Dr Truli works closely with the animal hospital doctors and staff to facilitate your pet’s recovery in any way possible. Below is a partial list of conditions you may be wondering about how to treat holistically or how to treat in a house call.
