We, at The Center for Animal Healing, strive to provide an ambience that is as relaxing and healing as possible for our four legged friends.

We take a comprehensive, holistic approach to animal diagnostics and treatment. During an initial visit, we will touch on diet, exercise, medications, vaccinations and behavioral issues. We will evaluate your companion’s body-bone structure, conformation, gait, tenderness, and level of pain so we have a starting point from which to progress.  We will take into consideration the patients level of comfort and quality of life first before recommending any treatment or combination of treatments.  We invite your questions and observations because you will be a vital partner in your companion’s treatment, and you will help us determine whether our course of treatment is proceeding successfully.

Dr. Rowan has a wealth of knowledge gained over a 47-year career of veterinary practice, study, and inquisition. He also has good relationships and collaborates with specialists in this area and throughout the country, and he will readily refer any patient to another specialist if that becomes necessary.

I hope you enjoy and learn from your first visit to The Center For Animal Healing and that you look forward to visiting us again.

Therapeutic Laser

Therapeutic lasers (as apposed to surgical lasers) are used to relieve pain and inflammation and to speed healing.  Therapeutic laser use has become more popular in the veterinary field over the last few years.  The Erchonia laser we use emits coherent light at 635 angstroms, the wavelength at which normal, healthy cells resonate. This allows the cells to uptake the photons or electrons instantly… Read More

Micro Current

Microcurrent therapy utilizes electrical current in millionths of an ampere to stimulate healing and to reduce pain in affected tissues. We utilize this type of therapy at the present time to treat primarily spinal cord and orthopedic injuries but we are finding that it has much broader application for treating a multitude of other conditions.  At the present time, Dr. Rowan is one of only three veterinarians in the world trained in this field… Read More
