Mobile veterinary services offer convenience as well as reduced stress for both dog and human! If your dog is very large or his mobility makes it difficult to get him into the car, you will appreciate this service even more. As an added benefit, I'll be able to see exactly what limitations or issues your dog is having in his own home environment.
After performing a thorough orthopedic exam, I will present an individualized treatment plan and perform needed treatments. I will then show you "homework" exercises to do with your dog which will help to increase his strength and coordination. Expect the first visit to last about an hour and a half. Follow-up visits are often necessary to achieve the full benefit of therapy.

|Service & support|
Dr. Jan is just tops in my book. I breed Beagles and my dogs range from conformation or performance dogs to retired house pets. Dr. Jan first helped one of my dogs who managed to strain his neck and shoulder while playing with others. She was responsive, rapidly identified the issues and set out a course of treatment that was both reasonable and relieved the dog's discomfort immediately and with little need for long term treatment such as anti-inflamatories that other vets had suggested.
Another dog had severe impairment in his hind limbs and was unable to walk normally. After diagnosis it was determined that he probably had a disc issue in his spine. The options were an expensive surgery that would take a long time to recover from, or alternative treatment with accupuncture, laser therapy and physical therapy. We opted for the alternative treatment and Cobb improved with every treatment. I am so grateful that we have an option other than invasive spinal surgery for this little, stoic man.
I cannot recommend Dr. Jan enough. Her approach gives you options other than invasive surgery that is hard on everyone involved, plus she's a great diagnostician who truly cares about her patients. She goes above and beyond to call of duty to ensure she's giving the best diagnosis and treatment possible. If you hear the word "surgery", call Dr. Jan for a second opinion - she's not kidding, she really CAN help!
Dr. Jan is absolutely an amazing vet! My dog has had a history of back pain, and while a lot of vets would have tried to solve the problem all thru medication or costly and painful surgery, Dr. Jan took a truly integrative approach, combining VOM spinal adjustment, acupuncture and some short-term medication to get my dog back to her normal self. After each VOM treatment, my dog would always feel much better after seeing Dr. Jan! I have always been super impressed by Dr. Jan's focus on finding the right, personalized care, educating me on how achieve optimal health for my dog, and treating not just the symptoms of my dog's ailments but the underlying cause. I have known Dr. Jan for 8 years and would highly recommend her to anyone!
I met Jan about a year through a friend of mine and found out about her special way of treating and healing of pets. When our boxer/pit mixed decided to jump on the trampoline with the kids it didn't turn out very well. He injured himself trying to jump off and was in severe pain. Didn't want to be touch or moved and would cry out when you would try. I called Jan who had been out all day traveling and competing and felt very bad about having to bother her but I knew something had to be done. She came by with her magic and equipment and almost right away he began to improve. A day or so later he was back in action. My family and kids appreciate her very much.
Dr Jan has worked on my agility dog a couple of times now and I am impressed with her thoroughness and patience. She has many tools in addition to her gentle hands and I am well pleased with the results I am seeing!
Dr. Jan took the time for a follow up call to give me tips for my aging, arthritic farm dog. Her approach is practical, compassionate, and flexible.
