Dr.Woods's Bio

It is my philosophy that an integration of allopathic and complementary therapies, allows for more options, and a path of wellness that ultimately promotes the quality of life for my patients and their owners.
   
In addition to practicing at 2 locations in Southern California, I am currently a member of: The American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, The International Veterinary Acupuncture Society, and The American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture.
   
I have had an interest in Alternative Veterinary Medicine 
dating back to my undergraduate studies. While working on my 
Bachelor of Science in honors Biology at the University of 
Cincinnati, I was employed part time with the Food and 
Drug Administration. Here I was introduced to a colleague who 
had been very pleased with the results her dogs had received 
using veterinary acupuncture.

During my education at the Ohio State University College of 
Veterinary Medicine, I continued my interest in veterinary 
acupuncture and became familiar with additional alternative, or so 
called "holistic" modalities. I helped develop the college branch 
or the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association and 
served as its president, providing the students with a showcase to 
learn about complimentary modalities in veterinary medicine.

Upon graduation, I completed a one year 
surgical/internal medicine internship at the Animal Specialty 
Group in Glendale, California.

Shortly after completing my internship, I became Certified in 
Veterinary Acupuncture. I have been in general practice since 
1998, and continue to provide clients and their animals with 
allopathic and complimentary therapies.

My area of special interest includes traditional Chinese Medicine, 
Homeopathy, Homotoxicology, Prolotherapy, and Neutraceutical Therapy.
