Generous & Much Needed Care For Our Seniors From Renowned Holistic Vet, Dr. David Fong
When Dr. David B. Y. Fong, DVM, offered to help Muttville and donate his time to provide acupuncture and herbal treatments to our ailing senior dogs, we could barely express how thankful we were! Sherri along with many of Muttville’s fosters and volunteers believe in the benefits of holistic care. Dr. Fong is certainly one of the best in the Bay Area, and we are so fortunate for his support.
Dr. David B. Y. Fong is a holistic veterinarian who has been involved with complementary and alternative medicine since 1993. He is a Colorado State University graduate, a certified veterinary acupuncturist and herbalist from the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society, and a California board-certified licensed acupuncturist for humans. He offers complementary modalities including acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Chinese Herbal Medicine, chiropractic, nutrition and contact reflex analysis. He is dedicated to exploring new and different modalities that offer less invasive treatments than surgery, antibiotics or steroids. Dr. Fong’s goal is to discover a harmonious integration of techniques.

Summer is a sad time for dogs. They're pouring into shelters – surrendered, or worse, when families leave for summer vacation. So we're pulling out all the stops to get dogs into forever homes. That means FREE ADOPTIONS to all qualified adopters during the month of August.
We're aiming for a record-breaking 90 ADOPTIONS this month.
Let's turn a sad month into a month of love!
