Dr. Steve Raabe - Holistic Veterinary Pet Care & Veterinary Acupuncture

Waukesha dog veterinarian

There was a time when Dr. Raabe thought holistic veterinary practices and natural pet care techniques weren’t for him. Inspired by a few positive holistic pet care cases, Dr. Raabe enrolled in a veterinary acupuncture course. Veterinary acupuncture opened up new worlds and new roads, leading him to a very gratifying career. Dr. Raabe expanded his holistic veterinary services to include herbal pet remedies in the late 1990s. Possessing these skills makes challenging medical cases particularly enjoyable for him.
