Mandala Integrative Veterinary Care
Holistic Veterinary Care for Dogs, Cats and Horses in Boulder and Surrounding Boulder
Mandala Integrative Veterinary Care (MIVC) is an integrative and holistic veterinary practice for dogs, cats, and horses. Our healing clinic is located in the foothills west of downtown Boulder, Colorado near Nederland. Dr Kelly Keeney specializes in integrative and holistic veterinary medicine with a focus on balanced preventative and individualized veterinary care. Dr. Keeney offers a wide range of healing modalities including acupuncture, chiropractic, laser therapy, Chinese and Western herbal medicine (including customized herbal treatment plans) and food therapy/nutrition counseling. Home and Barn visits in Boulder and some surrounding areas are also available on a limited schedule.
Dr. Keeney provides an integrative and individualized approach to veterinary care. Visits are 45 min in length, and, unlike most conventional practice settings, the entire length of the visit is spent with Dr. Keeney. This extended consultation time allows Dr. Keeney to develop a deeper understanding of her patient’s (and their family’s) needs so that she can sculpt the most supportive and effective care plan. Visits include a physical examination, acupuncture, laser if indicated, chiropractic if appropriate, formulation of an herbal medicine plan, food therapy recommendations among other specialized diagnostics and treatments as needed.
Acupuncture is a healing modality that was first used by the ancient Chinese over 4000 years ago. It works by rebalancing the flow of blood and qi through the body via pathways called meridians. Dr. Keeney uses acupuncture both diagnostically and therapeutically. She tracks changes within the pulse in response to stimulating different acupuncture points and this guides her treatment plan. Acupuncture is nearly always a part of the comprehensive care plan at Mandala Integrative Veterinary Care.Learn More
Chiropractic care is a type of heath care which focuses on maintaining and restoring the health of the neuro- muscular-skeletal systems via aiding in the restoration of normal nerve communication in the body. When functional misalignments occur within the spinal column, the nerves that branch off the spinal cord can be impacted. This can cause an interruption in normal nerve signaling to all of the muscles and organs in the body and result in muscle tension, stiffness/decreased mobility, pain and even organ dysfunction.Learn More
creams/ointments and bulk herbs for infusions. The importance of sourcing high quality, tested herbs from trusted providers cannot be understated. Working with a veterinary herbalist trained extensively in this area is critical as there are very important differences and awareness herbalists need to have when prescribing
herbs to animals (ex. dosing strategies, toxicity levels, potential herb drug interactions just to name a few.) Learn More Read more about Dr. Keeney’s Philosophy…
“I focus on providing the body with the natural tools that it needs to heal itself from the inside out. Integrative medicine can really be the best of both worlds, drawing on the strengths of multiple medicines and techniques to find the gentlest and most effective combination for the individual. By supporting the body’s pathways to self-healing we can achieve true and lasting health.”
