About Dr. Angela Bross, DVM
We specialize in traditional integrative therapies that address the whole animal. Western medicine tends to view heath and disease as separate states and seeks to restore wellness by destroying disease. Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) views disease as arising from an unbalanced state and seeks to bring the individual back into balance.
The two approaches may appear at odds with each other. However, as a DVM trained in western veterinary medicine, and a trained TCVM practitioner, Dr. Bross is able to integrate the two approaches to achieve maximum benefits while minimizing the limitations of both approaches. Through extensive training and experience, Dr. Bross has developed a holistic approach of addressing her patient's concerns.
