Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine

At Hopewell Animal Hospital, we strongly believe there are more ways than one to address health issues. While we are well trained in conventional medicine, we understand that some disease processes lend themselves to treatment with other methods. Because of this need, we have expanded our training into other areas of medicine.

Does your pet suffer from:

  • Anxiety?
  • Depression?
  • Coughing and Respiratory Issues?
  • Vomiting, Diarrhea and Digestive Issues?
  • Itching?
  • Seizures?
  • Chronic Pain and Stiffness?

We at Hopewell Animal Hospital have undergone extensive training to interpret external signals and translate that information into a treatment plan. The treatments used in TCVM consist of multiple modalities such as acupuncture, herbology, tui-na (bodywork or massage), food therapy, and even lifestyle modification. All these components are used in combination as we attempt to restore balance. We strongly believe that TCVM is not only for sickness but can enhance wellness at any stage of life.

If anyone is in need of finding a veterinarian for your pet I highly highly recommend Hopewell Animal Hospital on Route 52. They are the most nicest, compassionate, understanding people and they make sure your pet comes first... I can't say enough good things about this place. I'm so thankful that Dana was able to get me in yesterday or I don't think my baby would have made it another day ❤️

The care and support they've provided my son and his beautiful Xina has been phenomenal. I strongly recommend them. If you want true, honest, exceedingly wonderful care for your pet, come to them. My son now takes all of Xina's pups there as well.
