Our Approach

Our Canine Emotional Trauma Clinic approaches your dog’s emotional trauma from 4 perspectives: 

Physical – Dr. Danielle, owner of Prairie View Veterinary Services, offers an osteopathic approach to healing using a sympathetic overdrive protocol. This protocol uses hands-on energetic clearing to remove barriers in the adrenal and sympathetic nervous system. 

Mental/Emotional – Dr. Mike, who specializes in energy work, uses a hands-off system of identifying and clearing mental and emotional barriers to healing in the body.  

Cognitive – Cassie, owner of Off Leash K9 Training Central MN and Copper Pines, specializes in dog training and rehabilitation. She’ll provide personalized training exercise recommendations to build trust and confidence in the rehabilitation process, helping your dog change how they think about/react to triggers. 

Supplemental – We’ll provide personalized recommendations and samples (if available) of supplemental aids to healing.
