Acupuncture, Herbs and Nutrition for Dogs: Traditional Chinese Medicine


the first time mister rufus met dr. adam (2010) he was so miserably itchy that he had to wear a cone 24/7  to keep from shredding his own skin… want to see how he is today? come to the lecture to meet rufus yourself, and learn how he transformed with good food and TCM!















Does your dog itch and scratch constantly? Or have recurring tummy concerns?

small club is honored to be able to bring this educational and valuable event to Muttville, thanks to our favorite vet, dr. adam piaseczny, owner of healthy pets veterinary hospital. as you know, we are big nerds about pet nutrition and alternative health care. this stuff really works! we love learning about nutrition, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture, laser therapy and food tips from dr. adam and all the great vets at healthy pets. thanks to adam, we have our signature “small club stew”, a homemade organic, torture-free (i.e. certified humane meats) recipe that is served to the residents and clients at small club.

what do you want to learn? please send in your questions! you all have a question you have been dying to ask a vet who is an expert at both Eastern and Western medicine, informed on alternative treatments and simply knows the answers to questions like, “how do I figure out how to make my dog stop itching?” “why are my dog’s ears so stinky?” “what are the best fruits and vegetables for dogs?” “are supplements really that important – why can’t they just get it all in the food I buy?” your input and  interests guide the focus of our lecture series, and dr. adam will answer your specific question at the next lecture!
