Welcome to Healing Paws Center Holistic Vet Care in Fort Lauderdale!

Healing Paws offers unique care — we call it holistic vet care — for pet owners seeking veterinarians who specialize in pet acupuncture, rehabilitation/physical therapy, nutrition, herbal medicine, and holistic therapies.

Our goal at this pet therapy and rehabilitation center is to take a whole body approach to your pet’s health. We treat small animals with appropriate, effective, and state-of-the-art therapies to help your pet achieve optimum wellness. Dr. Jessie, our Fort Lauderdale holistic veterinarian specialist, treats pet pain, organ diseases, arthritis, post-surgical healing, and much more to help you achieve a great quality of life for your pet – our goal is to add more life to their years and more years to their life. 

Our Holistic Vet Care Staff

Our doctors have pursued extensive post-doctoral specialty training in pet acupuncture, rehabilitation/physical therapy, nutrition, herbal remedies, and holistic medicine. Unlike most veterinary offices, we do NOT offer the routine veterinary services or surgery. We work together with your current veterinarian to complement your pet’s current treatment plan with holistic alternative pet therapies.

We advocate that the BEST health care plan for your pet is balanced integrative treatment.   By utilizing multi-modal approaches to treating a disease, we are able to achieve more effective treatments and improved medical outcomes.
