Dr. Brad Roach

Dr. Brad Roach, Owner/Veterinarian treats your pet’s whole body with both conventional medicines and natural therapies including homeopathy, essential oils, traditional western and Chinese acupuncture, and Standard Process nutritional supplements.

In practice since 1990, Dr. Roach received his DVM from Oklahoma State University and is licensed to practice in both Oklahoma and California. He is a member of the AVMA, OVMA, and AHVMA.

Dr. Roach has been using biopuncture and homotoxicology for 10 years and is accredited for Vet-Stem therapies. Dr. Roach says, “In pets, we have had conventional medicines that suppress symptoms of the disease. With homeopathy, the immune system is activated by a similar substance signaling the immune components, like T-cells, to initiate the healing process.

Dr. Roach integrates Alpha-Stim pain management, Ozone and Stem-Cell therapy, gold bead implantation, detoxification, and homeopathy, with traditional veterinary medicine.
