Healthy Pets Veterinary Hospital was founded in August 2010 by Dr. Adam Piaseczny. Dr. Adam had been practicing Western medicine for a couple of years when he started to recognize its shortfalls in dealing with chronic and inflammatory diseases of companion animals. He quickly decided to pursue training in acupuncture, nutrition, and other modalities that aim to correct the imbalance between pets’ internal and external environment as it manifests during the disease process.
After years of providing care to numerous companion pets and consulting pet owners, he began to form a vision for his dream pet clinic. His vision entailed building an integrative pet facility to blend holistic and alternative treatment modalities including acupuncture, diet and nutrition, and herbals—while maintaining access to technology and equipment used in Western medicine.
Dr. Adam wanted to open a veterinary hospital in the West Portal neighborhood of San Francisco because he felt passionately about contributing to the community in which he lives. He also recognized that West Portal had been without a veterinary practice for far too long, despite the large number of cats, dogs, and other pets living in the area. Today, Dr. Adam aims to fill that need for West Portal residents, as well as Bay Area pet owners who are seeking a unique blend of holistic and traditional treatments for their loved ones.
