from client Virginia Ward and others:
Dr Diana Bochenski, Buellton vet clinic. Holistic veterinarian who uses
minute concentrations of substances including powders and some pills. "She
believes in a raw meat diet to help animals heal themselves. My friend Betty had
a small poodle that developed liver failure. The allopathic vet gave him only a
couple of weeks to live. This dog died of old age many years later,"
Virginia reported. Note: grains are not a natural food for many animals
and much of the stuff we get in a can is filled with it.
Ella Bittel, works in Buellton, but comes to Nipomo once a week to do
acupuncture. She also gives Chinese herb preparations if needed and offers some
chiropractic. Check prices if you are on a budget. "She uses the back
office at Mesa Vet clinic in Nipomo and has been treating my friendís Bouvier
for multiple allergies. The itching and scratching went away, but lately came
back when her owner had a medical relapse. The dog senses all that trauma and
reacts with the itching," says Virginia. Suzan notes: In talking with
animals, I find many conditions that are exaggerated or inflamed when there are
emotional upsets in the household."
Jennifer Burke, Certified Veterinarian Acupuncturist, 9575 El Camino Real,
Atascadero, CA 93422 (805) 466-3880. Great recommendation from clients who have
used Dr. Burke, who is open to alternative healing methods and an excellent
Tanya Winkler does acupuncture along with her other vet care, working with
Dr. Alwen at the Equine center and at the Broad Street Vet Clinic. "The
visit before last she put a mild electric stimulus on the needles when treating
Casey's three ruptured spinal disks. He tolerated it fairly well. She
also administered two of his accupoints with B 12 injection to continue
the stimulation until the next visit," reported Virginia.

Stephanie Szabo is a veterinary chiropractor. "I met her years ago when
she adjusted my Doberman Gus. My dog Sam fell asleep on the front seat of my old
VW and had a grand mal seizure. I took him immediately to (a vet clinic) where
they suggested giving him Phenobarbital. I refused to start him on that, but Sam
continued to have seizures every 2 or 3 weeks. Dr Szabo came to my house and
adjusted all 4 dogs three years ago. Sam did not have another
seizure for two years!" Dr. Szabo's office is now in Templeton where she
also offers swim therapy.
Jeff Alwen is a veterinary surgeon. He operated on Casey's three ruptured
disks and Virginia wondered at that time if she had made the right decision.
"He was incontinent and could not support his weight on the back and could
not wag his tail, but each day he showed a little improvement. He seemed to stop
getting better after 4 weeks, but seems to enjoy life anyway, and hopefully will
continue to improve," she said. Dr. Alwen has expanded and enhanced the
clinicís services to include Edna Valley Veterinary Clinic and CVO, the mobile

Making the decision to euthanize your geriatric or chronically ill pet is one of
the most difficult decisions animal caretakers make. When your pet has
reached a point where it is no longer able to enjoy any quality of life, humane
euthanasia can be an act of kindness done out of love. Peaceful Passings
for Pets offers in home euthanasia services for companion animals.
