Her continual efforts to offer compassionate care, health, hope and happiness to owners and their pets have brought culminated in the services we offer.
She has spent 33 years learning and developing treatment integration plans which rely heavily on creating wellness and health through the use of therapeutic nutrition, animal chiropractic, TCVM, herbology, acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, therapeutic massage, IASTM, essential oils, alternative cancer therapies, SANAWAVE, NanoVitalight, Laser therapy, NAET, Ozone Therapy, Prolotherapy, Stem Cell/PRP, and more.

Dr. Maro’s greatest enjoyment in practice is seeing owners’ hope and happiness restored when pets with “untreatable illnesses” respond to integrative care. Observing those extra days, years and months of quality time is truly a rewarding experience.
In her free time, she enjoys reading, volunteering, listening to TED talks, watching comedies and historical films, exercising, Zumba, Pilates, biking, hiking, gardening, spending time with her huge family, especially her kids, cats and dog.
