Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbal medicine is a wonderful complement to acupuncture and an integral part of Chinese veterinary medicine. It has been described as, "Acupuncture from the inside." The herbs used are extensively tested for accurate identification and avoidance of contamination, and are easily administered to animals as pills or, for horses, powder put on top of food.

"Dr. Lindsey has a wonderful, loving and calming effect on our Dara. Dara trusts and relaxes with her and lies still while Dr. Lindsey places the needles in her. Her symptoms have improved and we are so happy to have an alternative way to treat her for Cushing's disease."

The owners of Dara, a Doberman with Cushing's disease

"Ben does not seem to register any pain and therefore has no fear of the [acupuncture] process; in fact, he seems to welcome it. He is always very pleased to see Dr. Lindsey and lies peacefully while she administers the needles... his arthritis and incontinence have definitely improved through the acupuncture treatment."

The owner of Ben, an elderly German Shepherd with arthritis and urinary incontinence

"After researching online, I came across Dr. Lindsey's website. I am so glad that I did! She began treating Piper two weeks ago with both acupuncture and Chinese herbs... I have only positive things to say about Dr. Lindsey. She clearly knows her stuff, so I have the utmost confidence in her skills. Plus, she has a kind, patient, and calm demeanor that works well with my skittish Piper. And long before we had our first in-person session, Dr. Lindsey took the time to speak with me by phone, responded to many of my emails, and reviewed Piper's medical records... I don't trust just anybody to treat my baby, but I do trust Dr. Lindsey completely."
