Good Afternoon Bear Creek Clients and Family,
It is with deep regret and sorrow to inform you all, effective immediately our hospital doors will be permanently closing. We truly have loved growing and caring for both you and your pets over the years. We know this will cause stress and will be a big transition for us all. With that said all client records will be available soon and another post will be made to this site. Once again we have loved the opportunity to serve this community, clients and patients. You will be deeply missed and have touched our hearts in ways unimaginable,
Thank you

Bear Creek Veterinary Alternatives

Welcome to Bear Creek. Our philosophy is rooted in the ancient belief that all things are interconnected including our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health and that of our animal companions.

Our holistic approach to veterinary care combines 22 years of conventional medicine practice along with emergency care experience, and holistic medicine including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture, homeopathic, nutrition, and other treatment modalities.

As a family-owned, holistic practice we strive to keep our prices reasonable. Clients tell us other states are much more expensive. We consistently maintain our excellent standard of compassionate care for your animals at a price that hasn’t changed much in the last 10 years.

Please have respect for our time and give 24-hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. Many of the animals we treat are critically ill and we typically schedule 1 to 1½ hours of the doctor’s time for initial appointments. We appreciate your consideration.

Our deep love of nature is reflected in the web site and we hope you will enjoy the photos from our travels and the news, articles, and classes we provide for your education.

Voted Favorite Holistic Veterinarian by Sarasota Pet and Natural Awakenings readers.
