Twin Oaks Veterinary Hospital was established in 1976 as a full service medical surgical facility for horses, dogs and cats. It was designed and built by Dr. Howard and continues under his direction and Veterinary services. Our statement of purpose is to provide high quality pet healthcare at an affordable price, to educate our clients to the importance of good nutrition and healthcare for their pets. Our product is a client who has received the best health care for their pet, and is satisfied with their service from us, and as a result actively refers others to our hospital.
In the mid 1980’s other modalities of (Eastern) Veterinary Medicine such as Acupuncture, Chiropractic and Herbal were becoming available for the pet. After seeing the results of some cases it was apparent to Dr. Howard that Twin Oaks Veterinary Hospital needed to provide Eastern Veterinary Medicine as well as standard Western Veterinary Medicine. In 1997 Dr. Howard was certified in Acupuncture through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS) and in 1999 he was certified in Animal Chiropractic through the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA). In 2005, 2006 he took advanced courses in Veterinary Herbal Medicine. Since 1997, literally thousands of animals have benefited from treatments received from both Western and Eastern applications. Dr. Howard prefers to use Eastern Medicine as a compliment to Western Medicine since the two often work together better than either one alone.
