Hello 2024! πŸŽ‰

There’s something about the start of a new year that always seems to bring with it a sense of renewal and fresh beginnings. Here at our clinic, we’re embracing the new year with a mix of emotions as we bid a bittersweet farewell to one of our cherished unicorns,Β Amanda. As a registered veterinary technician, Amanda’s passion and dedication to our furry patients have been nothing short of inspiring. Her gentle touch and warm heart will surely be missed by not only our team but also by the many pets and families she has touched. As she embarks on her new journey in canine rehabilitation with the team atΒ Canine Rehabilitation of Orange County, we send her off with love and the best of wishes for this exciting new chapter. 🐾❀️

Looking ahead, there’s much to be excited about this year! I’ve recently earned my certification as anΒ Animal Aromatherapy SpecialistΒ and am on the cusp of completing my certification in Integrative Oncology. Alongside Dr. Trina Hazzah, we’re gearing up to bring unparalleled, innovative integrative oncology care to our center. This collaboration marks the dawn of a new era in our practice. πŸŒΏβš“οΈ

Our focus this year is on expanding our services to cater more holistically to the emotional health of our pets. The growing body of research highlights how emotional imbalances can lead to physical ailments, and we’re keen on addressing this often-overlooked aspect of pet care. 🩷 Lifestyle, and nutrition are the keystones to emotional health, and therapies such as aromatherapy, cannabis, massages, reiki, and microbiome health can all aid in balancing out the mind and the body.Β 

2024 is set to be a year of groundbreaking developments in specialized areas of integrative therapies. It’s thrilling to be carving a path in uncharted territories, but it’s a journey that aligns seamlessly with our values, our hearts, and our calling. Each day, I wake up grateful and energized to do this work, and I want to thank you for being an integral part of this journey. 🌟

Here’s to a year filled with health, happiness, and innovative care for our furry friends. Best wishes for a fantastic 2024!

Warm regards,
Dr. Lily Chen

Starlight Stories

Dear Unicorns, πŸ¦„

Does your pet enjoy it when you brush their teeth? Well, I can’t say I’m a fan of our dental lady, Dianne, brushing my pearly whites. Dianne keeps reminding me that I have some seriously gnarly unicorn breath! So, she did a bit of investigating and research, and she suggested I try out this Oral Microbiome TestΒ to figure out if there are any oral issues lurking and what’s behind my unicorn breath dilemma. I thought, “Okay, that sounds intriguing, but do they have to yank out my teeth for that?” Dianne assured me that’s not the case; all she needs is a simple swab of my gums. I thought, “That’s it? Count me in! Let’s do it, because I’m all in for discovering my oral microbiome and bringing rainbows into my every breath!”

Love,
Starlight ⭐
