Meet the Doctor
Dr. Janet Gordon has been in private practice with a special interest in small animal and avian medicine and surgery since 1981. More recently performing Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation and Low Level Laser Therapy on horses as well.
I am Dr Janet Gordon Palm (Dr. J) and am a licensed veterinarian, performing integrative options for enhancing quality of life for your pet. I have recently moved to Fruita Colorado, just outside Grand Junction, following my husband and my passion for outdoor activities including mountain biking and horseback riding.
My practice is based on visiting your home or barn where your pet is most comfortable. I can also meet you at your own veterinary clinic by referral from your veterinarian.
To express my passion for clinical medicine and surgery, I have worked at a wonderfully progressive AAHA clinic: New Hope Animal Hospital in my previous location of Minneapolis Minnesota. I had been associated with NHAH for over 25 years. My passion has led me to incorporating complimentary modalities, and I feel a need exists for offering these treatments outside of a clinic setting. This provides a more interactive relationship where the pet is more comfortable in their own surroundings.
Understanding the valuable family member who shares your life, and taking the time it takes to provide the best diagnostic and treatment course is what differentiates my one on one house call from the average clinic experience.
I will work in conjunction with your veterinarian, farrier, or caregiver to provide all the modalities appropriate to optimal healing.
Your pet's health and well being is very important to me and I will take every step to give your pet the best possible care.
Services include a comprehensive physical exam including animal personality assessment, gait analysis, application of integrative techniques including neuronal adjustment, myofascial release and low level laser therapy to encourage self healing. The rehabilitation at the spinal level, followed by muscle and connective tissue level, and finally cellular level allows for a more holistic approach to healing.
Also available are educational seminars, consulting and relief veterinary services to area clinics.
