Welcome to Sierra Animal Wellness Center

Your Holistic Veterinarian in Colfax, CA
Call us at (530) 346-6611

We’re so happy you found us!  Established in 1997 in Gold Run, CA, we were one of the first truly holistic veterinary clinics to serve the Sierra Foothills and beyond.  Now located in Colfax, California, we practice integrative medicine and specialize in treating small animals with Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM).  We use acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas as well as western herbs and medicine to treat the whole animal.  We also have a strong interest in animal behavior and use flower essences and herbs to treat animals whose behavior issues originate from an imbalance.  Our mission is to provide a balanced and gentle approach to your pet’s healthcare.


Why Integrative Medicine for Animals?

Integrative veterinary medicine is a comprehensive medical approach to pet care that combines the best of conventional medicine and complementary and alternative therapies.  This provides us with an increased capacity to prevent and treat disease that would not be possible using one system of medicine alone. We firmly believe the future of veterinary medicine lies in integration, ONE medicine, the one that works.

Why Holistic Medicine for Animals?

Basically, for the same reasons many people choose alternative medicine for themselves: to use more natural therapies that support healing rather than treat symptoms; to honor our patients as individuals with unique strengths and weaknesses rather than simply as patients with a certain disease condition; to strive to understand the connection between the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of all living beings, and how they profoundly affect health and vitality.

At Sierra Animal Wellness Center, our focus is on treating the whole animal using all appropriate therapeutic options, while partnering with you, our client to achieve optimal wellness for your pet.
