Dr. Jacqueline Heller is certified in this aspect of veterinary care and teams up with our other doctors to help prevent illness and if need be, hasten your pets road to recovery.



Holistic Care: Holistic nursing care is defined as a practice that focuses on healing the whole animal through the unity of body, mind, and environment.

We Believe.

At San Clemente Veterinary Hospital, that pets benefit most from a personalized approach to their veterinary care. With this in mind, we provide integrative holistic care in wellness visits, disease prevention, and treatment by offering a blend of conventional approaches and holistic therapies.

Holistic Focus.

Holistic Medicine focuses on incorporating natural healing methods and engaging the animal’s own healing abilities to work toward health. The animals’ environment, behavior, nutrition, stress factors, disease pattern, and relationship to other pets and humans in the household are evaluated. Animals are individually assessed for any health, nutrition, mobility, or behavioral issues.

Integrative holistic treatment plans may include:

  • - food therapies
  • - acupuncture
  • - class IV cold laser
  • - natural herbal remedies
  • - nutritional supplements

In addition to other more traditional medical or surgical procedures.


  • - Healing and preventing illness
  • - Enhancing your pets’ overall health and healing abilities
  • - Improving his or her quality of life.
