“Last August (2012) Jeff and I excitedly moved to the Bay Area, for his dream job and my happy retirement. We did not ship, nor fly, our beloved elderly dogs to California. Instead, we left them in good care and waited until we could drive them across country during the Christmas holiday. Gizmo, a pekingese, is now 15. Simon, a Shi-Tzu, is 13. They have the normal aging concerns and I researched the Bay area to find (what I KNEW was here somewhere) a Vet that was forward thinking and used integrative means to treat. HolyCowHolyMoses!!!!! When I found Holistic Vet Care and Dr. Richter, it was so much more than I’d hoped for….”
“Boomer, my 9 year old Standard Poodle had been diagnosed with Chronic Hepatitis about four years ago. His liver was enlarged, making him uncomfortable and listless. He was no longer his usual, playful self, and his liver enzymes were extremely elevated. I realized at this point, that traditional “Western” medicine modalities were not helping my poor baby.
I really had no idea what to expect when I took Boomer to see Dr. Richter. I just figured, it couldn’t hurt, and hopefully, it would help. Dr. Richter and his staff made us feel…”
“Iris was a rescue who spent her whole life in a cage. Her right hip was very weak with a funny gait. After her first adjustment I was very excited on how her gait changed and how much further she could walk and get around without as much pain. I feel like every animal should get chiropractic care because it works so well.”

“Our 11 year old lab (Chief) was completely crippled and unable to walk at all when we returned from a trip last summer. We truly believed he would not make it through the week when we came to Holistic for a last ditch effort. Beth and her crew were so great! We took their advice and between the acupuncture, the meds, the therapeutic swims and the expert TLC, Chief is like a new dog! I heartily recommend to anyone that, if their animal is hurting, give them a try and you will add years of healthful enjoyment to their life!”
- Michael and Cynthia Karasik
“Dr. Richter: Thank you for the care Dr. Lisa Koenig and you have provided for my Labs. Dr. Lisa’s chiropractic treatments and advice on supplements have kept my 14 1/2 year old yellow Lab happy, mobile, and comfortable, for which I am extremely grateful.”

Odie was losing his vision due to a genetic eye disorder known at PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy). It was happening gradually over a 2 year period, probably longer. We didn’t notice until he couldn’t find the toys we tossed for him, and occasionally would bump into something. This started happening more often. Then he started having trouble navigating the stairs…”
Kettle is a 15-year-old feline that loves to careen down hallways and snuggle on his owner’s lap.
After a routine checkup at the beginning of the year, Kettle was diagnosed with renal failure. The owner had heard only distressing news about CRF, so by the time she came to see Dr. Richter she was understandably upset…
Poppy is a very inquisitive young adult female kitty that likes to get into everything.
Poppy’s owner brought her into Montclair Veterinary Hospital after witnessing the cat “twitching” with middle-back discomfort. Poppy had been playing near a tall bookcase and knocked over a large vase, which may have fallen on top of her. The pain began after that incident…
