ABOUT US

Healing Spirit Animal Wellness Center provides integrative medical care to cats, dogs, and rabbits. We offer a broad range of medical, dental and surgical services, complementary and alternative therapies, including acupuncture, chiropractic, herbal medicine, and homeopathy. We have an expanded in-house laboratory, digital x-ray and ultrasound imaging to guide diagnosis and help us provide the most appropriate treatment. We are dedicated to delivering individualized care to best meet the needs of each patient in a calm, tranquil environment.

Healing Spirit has evolved from a single doctor mobile practice (formerly Veterinary Housecalls), founded by Dr. Sarah Green in 1997. After nearly a decade of traveling throughout Humboldt County, we gradually made the transition to a stationary practice to better accommodate the needs of our patients.

In 2008 we were joined by Dr. Desen Ertunc (pronounced R-toonch), a graduate of Humboldt State University and the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. We are very fortunate to be assisted by a dedicated and compassionate support staff. They are Bill, Miranda, Maeci, Ali, Elle, Lori, Brittany, and Yuliana.

Our goal is to provide high quality, compassionate care for our animal patients in a tranquil environment that promotes wellness and facilitates healing. As an integrative practice we are dedicated to treating the whole patient and offering a variety of treatment options. We aim to communicate these options to you, the caregiver, as clearly as possible so that we may work together to formulate solutions that meet each animal’s individual needs.
