New Concept in Veterinary Hospitals Comes to Raymore


Whole Health Pet Center is opening June 2 on Highway 58 east of the Raymore-Peculiar East Middle School, following a Grand Opening Open House on May 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. At the Open House, clinic tours and displays by many area pet or health-related businesses will be available. This small-animal veterinary facility offers a unique concept in veterinary medicine. Dr Sandi Leonard, owner, is certified in Animal Chiropractic, Veterinary Acupuncture, and Chinese Veterinary Food Therapy. After 10 years as a house-call holistic practitioner, she is expanding her services. The primary focus at Whole Health Pet Center is holistic preventive medicine, with a goal of achieving optimal health and quality of life in the patients seen there.

Complementary medicine is a growing field in both human and veterinary medicine. It is estimated that nearly 70% of people use natural therapies such as chiropractic or massage, dietary supplements, or energetic treatments such as homeopathy or Reiki. A growing number of pet owners have in interest in raw or home-made foods for their pets, avoiding excessive chemical use on or around their animals, and avoiding excessive vaccination.

Whole Health Pet Center is supportive of the efforts of owners like these to keep their pets healthy naturally. Dr Leonard says, “We try to stress the importance of health maintenance instead of waiting until a pet gets sick to do something about the illness. With good nutrition, regular chiropractic care, and at least twice yearly examinations, we can help a pet have a better quality of life”. The approach to health care at Whole Health Pet Center is very individualized, with each patient’s lifestyle, breed, family dynamics, and health history being taken into consideration. The dual emphasis at this clinic of optimizing pet health and client service leads to a unique experience with each appointment.
