Wholistic/Nutritional Consultations – Telehealth or In Office

Telehealth consultations are an excellent way to get wholistic help for your pet, no matter where you live or how busy you are. Limited in-office consultations are also available. Consultations include a review of history, a Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine assessment, and an in-depth 30–45-minute conversation about your goals for your pet. Recommendations will be made that are detailed and pet-specific, including food therapy and supplements or herbs as appropriate. Follow up consults are recommended for best results and are billed according to time. Telehealth consultations are not intended to take the place of regular veterinary care and will not diagnose or treat your pet.

Please specify if you prefer phone or Zoom for your consult.

  • Telehealth Initial Nutritional Consult (45 minutes) – $195. Mandatory appointment for all new pets.
  • Telehealth Follow Up Nutritional Consult (30 minutes) – $100

Nutrition Response Testing

Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) appointments involve diet evaluation and a hands-on indirect testing of muscle reflexes on your pet. This method allows your pet’s body to communicate specific areas of stress or imbalance. If your pet is determined to be a good candidate for an NRT Designed Clinical Nutrition program, I can be very specific about natural support products that resonate with your pet in real-time. Pets that qualify for this program are seen every 2-4 weeks for as long as it takes for them to attain better health and balance. NRT is not designed to take the place of regular veterinary care and will not diagnose or treat your pet.

Plan a full hour for the initial in office consultation and 20-30 minutes for follow-up appointments either by telehealth or in office.

Nutrition Response Testing (60 minutes)
– New patient: $195
– Existing patient: $100

Acupuncture with Thrive is based on both a conventional and a Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine evaluation of your pet and often includes other recommendations such as foods or supplements that will help your pet heal.
