Alternative Care

Reduced playful activity, loss of appetite, and touch sensitivity can be signs your family dog or cat is experiencing pain. Fraserview Veterinary Hospital recommends a multimodal approach to pain management, including non-invasive therapies, require no pharmaceuticals, and have no side effects.

"My 9 year old cocker spaniel was one of their first clients on the opening day. They’ve now treated her for two issues that we put off over covid, including a surgery. Dr June, Tina and the rest of the team clearly adore animals. They are patient, have a strong attention to detail and my dog adores them. Highly recommend."

“Compassionate, understanding and knowledgeable.
In a world where we all care dearly for our little furry friends and would do anything for them, it is extremely refreshing to have an experience where your vet listens and makes a decision with you (not for you) and in your best interests (not their bottom line).

Dr Chan took the time to listen to our concerns, offer insights and present our solutions with logical risk assessment for both the condition in question and the impact on our pet (who does not do well in social environments).”

"Our first visit to Fraserview Vet was great! Dr. June Siu and the staff treated our dog Momo with care, and were happy to answer all the questions that we had about Momo. I would highly recommend future and existing pet owners to come here or their sister hospital, Point Grey Vet, if you want your pets to be professionally cared for."

Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), although relatively new to the Western world, is a medical system that has been used in China to treat animals for thousands of years. It is an adaptation and extension of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) used to treat humans. Speaking broadly, Chinese Medicine is a complete body of thought and practice grounded in Chinese Daoist philosophy. Though it can be traced back over two millennia in recorded history, it continues to evolve today like any medical system. Current research on acupuncture and herbal medicine is beginning to shed light on its mechanism of action.
