We are often asked about where to seek vet care in the greater Los Angeles area, and beyond if our services are geographically out of reach, we’re full with bookings, or something is needed beyond the services we offer. We hope the links below are helpful to you and your pets!
Integrative or Holistic Mobile Practices
Dr. Tori Countner at The Balanced Pet Vet
Dr. Tori Countner is a wealth of knowledge in the world of integrative veterinary medicine, and her compassion and warmth shine through in her meticulous care of pets. Her Instagram account is full of practical insights and pearls about holistic pet care. She’s currently serving the Los Angeles and San Diego areas, working both as a mobile practitioner and a hospital clinician. She also writes, speaks, and helps educate on many platforms.
I am not sure how she does it all, but she does it all so well.
Dr. Eve Harrison at Marigold Veterinary
Dr. Eve Harrison comes from an extensive veterinary medicine background in general practice, surgical practice, emergency/specialty hospital, rehabilitation center, wildlife center, and shelters. She is now exclusively focusing on providing care at home using an integrative approach to treat the whole animal. Dr. Harrison evaluates all the animal’s needs, their family, and their caregivers to give the best possible outcome. What I love the most about Dr. Harrison is her innovative and personal approach to pet care and how she supports and empowers every family to care for their beloved pets.
As a bonus, she really does travel all over the greater Los Angeles area, and this can be invaluable for many who need a mobile integrative practitioner.
Dr. Lindsey Wendt at Crystal Lotus
Dr. Lindsey Wendt is the proud founder of Crystal Lotus Veterinary Care. She graduated with honors from UC Davis Veterinary School, specializing in zoological medicine, and has been a practicing veterinarian for 10 years. When her beloved pet (Nala) was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease yet failed to respond to conventional treatments, she searched for alternative modalities to provide more personalized options on Nala’s healing journey. It was during this time that Dr. Wendt realized how much she wanted to help others access the resources they need so their pets can receive optimal care tailored specifically to them. She has since then proceeded to refine her practice, taking advantage of her expertise and strategies to heal animals.
Mobile Animal Rehabilitation and Acupuncture
Dr. Deanna O’Neil at Paws Up Rehabilitation
Always interested in holistic medicine and canine rehabilitation, Dr. Deanna O’Neil achieved her Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist training from the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS).

Over the past seven years, Dr. O’Neil has specialized in animal rehabilitation and acupuncture. Dr. O’Neil has a proven record of positive outcomes through her many years of experience as a rehabilitation veterinarian.

Matt: Groom-r Housecall Pet Grooming
Of all the pet groomers I have worked with over the year, Matt is one of the most gentle groomers I have ever met. He is passionate about his craft and continues to educate himself with certifications, courses, and competitions. My 16-year-old Pomeranian normally stresses out with anyone who tries to handle her, but she was calm and happy with Matt. He is the one to call if you are looking for someone with that special touch.
Jess: Pupwash 911
Based in the Orange County area, Jess does an amazing job with all of her pet clients. She is passionate about pet care and takes meticulous care with all pups who come in for grooming. Jess continues to look for innovative ways to care for and pamper the pooches while striving to create a wonderful community with pet lovers. I wish she were closer to me! She is the one to call if you are looking for mobile grooming care in the Orange County area.
