Services Offered by Coastal Holistic
Acupuncture and chiropractic services
Acupuncture is an ancient technique traced back to Chinese medicine that serves as a painless solution to many conditions like arthritis, hip dysplasia and some forms of paralysis in dogs and cats.
Another non-invasive method used is chiropractic care which primarily focuses on preserving the health of your pet’s spinal column. It can be highly beneficial for pets with mobility issues or those seeking relief from muscle tension or spasms.
The vets providing these treatments are adept at performing safely and efficiently, ensuring top-quality veterinary services adjusted to each pet’s individual needs.
Physical exams and general practice
Staying on top of your pet’s health demands regular physical examinations. Our team is skilled and committed to conducting these assessments, aiming to spot any signs of sickness at the earliest stage.
We monitor for shifts in weight, issues with skin, dental distresses, cardiac complications or other unusual conditions requiring special care. In handling typical healthcare needs such as immunizations, flea deterrence and worming procedures, we excel.
Herbal medicine and nutrition consultations
Diving deeply into herbal medicine’s world, there is a fusion with essential nutrition consultations designed for pets. Recognizing that every pet has its uniqueness and varying dietary needs influences this process.
Leveraging detailed understanding of various herbs that influence animal health positively ensures your furry friends benefit fully from Nature herself! Herbal solutions effectively combat common threats and strengthen immune responses as a valuable alternative alongside traditional veterinary clinic options.
Lab and diagnostics
At our veterinary clinic, we understand the importance of accurate diagnostics in providing excellent quality care for your pets. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of lab and diagnostic services.
Our modern facilities are equipped with the latest technology to ensure fast and precise results. Our skilled team can perform blood tests, urinalysis, X-rays, and ultrasounds with precision.
Dentistry and surgery
Our veterinary clinic offers a wide range of dental and surgical services for dogs and cats. Our experienced team of veterinarians and technicians specialize in performing dental cleanings, extractions, and oral surgeries to keep your pets’ mouths healthy.
We also offer routine spaying/neutering as well as more complex surgeries. With advanced facilities and equipment, we prioritize the safety and comfort of your furry friends during these procedures.
Shock wave and cold laser therapy
Shock wave therapy uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate healing in damaged tissues, reducing pain and inflammation. This non-invasive treatment can be particularly effective for conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, and muscle strains.
Our cold laser therapy utilizes low-level lasers to target injured areas, promoting cellular regeneration and reducing pain. This gentle yet powerful treatment can benefit pets with a wide range of medical conditions, including joint issues, wounds, and post-surgical recovery.
We strive to combine the best of Modern Western Veterinary medicine and technology with Holistic veterinary medicine to help your pet thrive and heal. We tailor our approach and recommendations to each pet and family’s specific needs as we understand everyone is unique. We value the quality of life of our patients, clients and team and make that a priority in everything we do.

About Our Clinic
At Coastal Holistic we strive to provide a comfortable, calm and quiet environment for healing your pet. It is for this reason that we do not offer emergency services. Our goal is for our clinic to feel more like a home than a hospital.
Our doctors are licensed veterinarians, which allows us to provide the most modern, non-invasive Western veterinary care with a holistic point-of-view. We like to think this means we have “more tools in our toolbox” when it comes to treating your pet. If needed, we can perform diagnostic testing including, bloodwork, urine/ fecal analysis, and cytology, and we can also prescribe necessary Western medications. We have a wide network of referral hospitals that we work with if your pet requires additional services.

“Dr. Molly has been our primary vet but Dr. Kari and Dr. Sara have also assisted us and they couldn’t be any nicer or more thorough with their support and treatment. Truly the best vet team in the Bay Area.”L J
“Kari took the best care of our skittish and defensive rescue terrier, and of us! We had been to two others vets over the course of her earlier years, both of whom felt the need to muzzle her. Kari never needed that. She was so skillful, our dog felt at ease with her. After we found Coastal Holistic, we looked no further. I recommend them without reservation.”Margaret L.
“I began seeing Kari & Molly due to my dog's skin condition. They were very caring & nurturing, my dog was seen on a weekly basis and she loved both vets. She knew they were helping her to heal and get strong. She eventually did heal although she still has a hereditary condition, I can't thank them enough!”Daphne H.
“Amazing level of personal care and attention. Holistic approach to pet’s health and well-being without the omnipresent marketing push of unnecessary medications and procedures. Authentic healers.”Aleksey B.
“Kari and Molly have seen all our pets. They are amazing with animals! Their care and knowledge are a priceless treasure, and we are grateful to have them as our friends and vets.”Jennifer G.
