Bear Creek Veterinary Alternatives

Welcome to Bear Creek. Our philosophy is rooted in the ancient belief that all things are interconnected including our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health and that of our animal companions.

Our holistic approach to veterinary care combines 22 years of conventional medicine practice along with emergency care experience, and holistic medicine including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture, homeopathic, nutrition, and other treatment modalities.

As a family-owned, holistic practice we strive to keep our prices reasonable. Clients tell us other states are much more expensive. We consistently maintain our excellent standard of compassionate care for your animals at a price that hasn’t changed much in the last 10 years.

Please have respect for our time and give 24-hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. Many of the animals we treat are critically ill and we typically schedule 1 to 1½ hours of the doctor’s time for initial appointments. We appreciate your consideration.

Our deep love of nature is reflected in the web site and we hope you will enjoy the photos from our travels and the news, articles, and classes we provide for your education.

Anesthesia-free Dental Cleanings

Bear Creek is now offering dental cleanings without anesthesia for animals that are pre-screened, suitable candidates. Older or chronically ill animals are particularly suited for this procedure as they are always at risk when undergoing anesthesia. Please call to schedule an exam.
