Client Testimonials:

"My husband and I have 3 Japanese Chins. Captain, Morgan and Bono are our boys. Captain is the oldest at 12.5 years. All 3 of the boys have benefitted from holistic care, animal chiropractic, NAET and acupuncture for a variety of health problems including disc disease, heart disease, and most recently, Captain was diagnosed with Cushing's Disease and seizures. As a heart disease patient, he is not a good candidate for anesthesia and an MRI. He is also very drug sensitive..I appreciate that Dr. Maro treated him alternatives to drugs (which would sedate and reduce his quality of life). He is responding well to craniosacral therapy and Vita Herb Light treatments. He has been seizure free since September 2014."

- Sharon Gregory, Wexford, Pa ... January 28, 2015

My dog was getting weekly allergy shots when we started seeing Dr. Maro. Within a year of starting NAET and animal Chiropractic care, she was not having any signs of allergies and was able to stop her allergy shots. All of our pets have benefitted from Holistic care at the Ellwood and Chippewa Animal Hospitals.

-Diane Manning, Beaver Falls, Pa.....February 17, 2015

"These clinics are wonderful. I had been taking my dog to another facility and she had a severe drug reaction, after being treated for pain. after several attempts to get her well, I saw Dr. Maro for a second opinion. Within a short time, my dog Feona was back to herself. I really thought we were going to lose her. I am so grateful for the patience, professionalism and how well I am treated by the entire staff. Now that I've found these great people who really listen to my concerns, I will never go anywhere else with my dog."

- Pam S., Enon Valley, PA....March 10, 2015

I've been so pleased with my dog's progress. I started visiting the Ellwood and Chippewa Animal Hospitals for acupuncture with the the goal of having Gold Bead Implants for my Great Dane named Zoey. She had been diagnosed with Wobblers Syndrome at 1 year of age, and we were told by neurologists at Ohio State that she could become paralyzed. It was recommended that she have spinal surgery. Zoey is now 3 1/2 years old and she is playing and active. Her gait has improved and she has not needed surgery. 

-Linda B., Triadelphia, West Virginia...April, 7, 2015

I own and breed Golden Retrievers. Before coming to this facility, I tried other veterinarians. They would check my puppies and give them vaccines, but I had never received the thorough examinations and level of care and information that these vets offer. They provide nutritional information, reduced vaccine schedules and documentation which will help the new owners receive the best level of care in their new homes. I am so impressed by the knowledge and experience of the vets and staff.

-Brandi H., Beaver Falls, Pa....April 6, 2015
