My senior horses and dogs with chronic health problems from lameness to breathing issues/ allergies have greatly benefited from Dr. Linnea's acupuncture and chiro treatments. As a naturopathic therapist for animals, I am always looking for the most natural, least invasive, and most effective treatments for my animals. I am thrilled to have a DVM in our area offering these services full time. She is dedicated, compassionate, and effective and my animals are always happy to see her.

I met Dr. Theisen 5 years ago and immediately was impressed with her interaction with my horses. A couple of years ago, my Arab was diagnosed with Cushings. I went the way of traditional veterinary treatment and started him on Prascend. He quit eating when we tried to increase the dose, and last fall he developed COPD. He seemed miserable no matter what I did for him. Dr. Theisen suggested trying acupunture and herbal therapy. The change in him has been amazing! He feels good, loves getting acupuncture, and has no more episodes of COPD. He nuzzles her after every session. I know he is saying, "thank you, my friend."

From the mom of the dog that runs when he sees cotton balls, nail clippers, or a dog brush- My big timid, overly sensitive dog let Dr. Theisen stick him all over with needles and was happy, relaxed, and loving life! My dog hates having his paws and limbs handled and is a really bad for nail trims and blood draws, anything where you have to touch his limbs. Dr. Theisen was patient, reassuring and my dog was happy to let her put needles into and around his limbs and paws!!!!!! A really good experience for owner and pet!

Dr. Theisen has worked on three of my fur babies and has done a wonderful job. I'm new to the natural side of medicine but the more I learn and see the affects on my pets the more amazed I am. Great treatment by an awesome lady.

I wasn't sure how my grumpy old dog would handle acupuncture but Dr. Theisen made him relax right away and he has significantly benefited from the treatments. He nearly falls asleep even while she is placing the acupuncture needles. We will definitely keep up with the treatments. The natural treatments she has introduced me to have worked very well for my animals, without all the dangers and side effects of prescriptions. I feel better knowing that I am not doing more harm than good to my dog.

My 4 year old Daschund has had a terrible time recovering from a back injury she sustained in July. She could barely walk and was in pain all the time. After months of seeing several vets, countless drugs and crate restrictions, she wasn't getting any better. Facing an expensive surgery, I was told about Dr. Theisen and Integrative Healing Veterinary Clinic & Mobile Services. I made the first appointment for acupuncture in October. We have now been seeing her several times a month and my dog is no longer on those bad drugs which made her lethargic, sickly, and made her hair fall out. Today she went on a walk, albeit a short walk down the block and back, but she did it! No stopping and she had a pep in her step. We now have to work on building those muscles in her back legs that are atrophied because of the lack of exercise. She is doing so much better thanks to Dr. Theisen!

Dr. Theisen came out for our first visit today. 4 dogs! All got examined, adjusted, acupuncture, and remedies. We just moved from NJ and have 3 Daschunds and a large mix breed who had a broken back in the past. Chiropractic care is vital for their "extra long" spines to stay healthy. Our oldest Doxie REALLY doesn't like people...by mid visit, she was laying on her back wagging her tail and paws at Dr. Theisen. So thankful to have found this type of care. A big plus to find a like minded person on National Friends day! Looking forward to many years of healthy pets and a friendly face!

Our 3 year old Frenchie, Adalyn Fayth, sustained a back injury and was not able to use her back legs. We heard about Dr. Theisen and really liked the fact that she believed in a holistic approach. After a couple of treatments, Adalyn started improving and is getting back to her old self. Dr. Theisen has a great bedside manner and is extremely knowledgeable in her field. She is very thorough and has true passion when working with our four legged baby. She was excellent with answering all of our questions and addressing any concerns we had. I highly recommend her.

Thanks to Integrative Healing Veterinary Clinic, Amber can celebrate St. Patty's Day! We were not sure she would still be us, but thanks to our wonderful vet, Amber is almost feeling like a puppy again! I can't thank you enough for giving us back our baby girl!

My dog Kuma was suffering from a dog park injury that just wouldn't heal. He became so sad and lethargic because of the pain in his hind legs. We came here hoping for anything that could work, and after one treatment Kuma was already improving! Now after his 3rd treatment, Kuma is like a brand new dog! It's amazing! He's the happiest Shiba in the world now thanks to this place and the wonderful lady who runs it. No more pain, no more hindquarter weakness, and no more limping!

Dr. Theisen has been amazing with my dog Ruby. Over a year ago she had surgery on both her knees and has some continuing stiffness and arthritis. The laser and acupuncture have been great for Ruby, and she has also educated me on different diets for the dogs which I have since incorporated. I truly appreciate her and all the work work she does! Also my shy dog Rylee absolutely adores her and loves coming along to the appointments.
