Tanner - Testimonial for Dr. Jill Todd.

“Thank you for your ongoing care and support for Tanner.  Dr. Todd and team navigated him through life-concerning health problems. They were always compassionate, very professional and very knowledgeable. Tanner was fortunate to have such a caring and talented team helping ensure his golden years were truly, golden!”

Vanessa R., Dog Mom

Dr. Jill made the last months of life for our two senior cats, Tripod and Peanut, more comfortable and happy.

We first started working with her when Tripod (four legs, three feet) was having trouble ambulating due to arthritis and increasing spine contortion. The combination of chiropractic, acupuncture, and cold laser helped reduce his pain and increase his mobility. Soon, his brother wanted to get in on the healing (literally, he would walk into the cold laser beams), and we started making dual appointments for them. Dr. Jill helped with a variety of issues including digestion, constipation, and anxiety as well as their mobility issues. Her calming presence made it easy for them to hang out while being treated, and they often took naps during or right after treatments. She gave them yummies (with our permission), suggested alternative therapies to medications, and gave us advice when their health was waning. I’d said we enjoyed Dr. Jill as much as our kitties did!

I highly recommend Dr. Jill as an adjunct to veterinary care for any kitty with acute or chronic health issues that could benefit from chiropractic, acupuncture, and cold laser. Thank you for all you did for our 19-year old gentle cats, Dr. Jill!

Frequently Asked Questions

Jill Todd, DVM has practiced veterinarian medicine since 1996. She is committed to consistent quality veterinary care and educating clients on how to keep their pets healthy year round using complimentary holistic medicine and herbal therapy.

Holistic medicine looks at a pet’s overall health, and use traditional and alternative therapies. Dr. Todd routinely works with her patient’s Vets to reference lab tests and prescription drugs to determine the best treatment options for acupuncture, chiropractics and herbal remedies to help pets heal and remain healthy.

Dr. Todd’s philosophy as a holistic veterinarian emphasizes empathy and minimal invasiveness. Holistic veterinary medicine is a type of veterinary medicine that uses complimentary and integrative medicine in the treatment of animals.

Yes.  Jill takes in the whole picture of the patient—the environment, the disease pattern, the relationship of pet with owner—and developing a treatment protocol using a wide range of therapies for healing the patient. As a holistic practitioner, I am interested not only in a medical history, but also genetics, nutrition, environment, family relationships, stress levels, and other factors.

No. The combined holistic care regime for your pet is minimally to noninvasive and will not cause direct pain or harm.   Depending on the patient, they can either lie or stand when they receive treatment.  Most find it relaxing and should be allowed to rest after a treatment to minimize strain and or re-injury.

Most animals will find acupuncture, VOM and cold laser therapy relaxing and tend to enjoy the treatment.  Dr. Todd provides treatments to an range of pets including dogs, cats and horses but not limited too.

Acupuncture can be used on all species of animals, and has documented efficacy on a wide range of species from elephants to mice. However, it tends to be more frequently used on companion animal species such as the horses, dogs and cats.

Chiropractic treatment of animals is different than that of treating humans.  Dr. Todd practices Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM), which is less invasive than spinal manipulation as it uses an Activator instrument to stimulate the vertebra and decrease subluxations to  facilitate release of muscular pain and inflammation.

Cold laser therapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation.  The treatment is a relatively new concept that is being used more recently to treat dogs, cats and horses with arthritis, tendon or soft tissue injuries and to promote wound healing.
