We were devastated when our kitten, Cressie, had an accident causing nerve damage to her front paw. She was unable to use it and all. We consulted with several vets in the area, but amputation was most likely the best option. Dr. Henderson with Caring Hands Animal Hospital gave us one last option, she called Dr. Tran and set up an appointment. We were skeptical, it had been 3 or 4 weeks since the injury and she was unable to move her paw. After Cressie’s first acupuncture appointment, we saw a slight movement of her paw and we were amazed. After 3 visits to Dr. Tran, we knew she would make a full recovery. Cressie is now a happy, healthy cat, no one would ever know she had an injury. We love Dr. Tran, she spends time getting to know you and your pet in order to give them the best care available. We have referred many friends to Dr. Tran, she is the best!

“Our cat and three dogs have been patients of Dr. Rieko Tran for the last three years, and the improvement in their health has been significant. Her extensive knowledge of holistic nutrition, traditional acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, and traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, paired with her years of experience as a conventional veterinarian, has helped mitigate the effects of epilepsy, anxiety, arthritis, and the various other ailments of our geriatric pets. We sincerely feel that Dr. Tran has not only helped improve the quality of their lives, but that her treatments have also infused them with a vitality and vigor they had not shown for several years. Dr. Tran's personality, knowledge and willingness to help in nearly any veterinary situation are the valuable qualities every veterinarian should have."

Dr. Rieko Tran has cared for my dogs under both urgent circumstances at the emergency clinic and more typical circumstances for regular acupuncture and holistic medical treatments. Each of my dogs has special needs and a variety of issues including gastrointestinal and skin issues, hip dysplasia, and neurological disorders which greatly impacts their ability to walk. Unfortunately, I only discovered Dr. Tran when two of my dogs were very old and their symptoms were advanced, however Dr. Tran determined the best course of action and combination of treatments to maintain their ability to walk and remain happy and pain free. Dr. Tran has a very gentle and serene demeanor to which animals respond, and she goes above and beyond to accommodate the needs of the animals for which she cares. Dr. Tran undoubtedly cares for her patients and continuously seeks innovative treatments and techniques to provide the best care possible. I especially appreciate that she takes the time to discuss the medical needs of my dogs in detail, and helps me understand their issues which assists me in making the best decisions for their well being. Dr. Tran is truly a dedicated, compassionate, exceptional veterinarian who brings a unique combination of traditional and holistic medicine to her practice. I highly recommend Dr. Tran to anyone seeking a veterinarian for their beloved pet as she will surely care for them as if they were her own.
