A lifelong dream for Dr. Ashley McCaughan has finally become a reality - Marina Village Veterinary opens its doors February 2018 as Alameda's FIRST HOLISTIC veterinary hospital!
A graduate from Cornell University School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Ashley McCaughan enjoys working with all types of animals - dogs, cats, pocket pets, rabbits, and even horses. She practices veterinary acupuncture (trained at the Chi Institute) and is also certified in Veterinary Chiropractic. She is passionate about multi-modal therapy for pain management, using laser, acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and/or chiropractic treatments, in addition to conventional medicines.
Dr. McCaughan gains great personal satisfaction from helping our companions live longer and often happier lives. Most recently, she completed a course in advanced dental procedures, so feel free to ask her about how to improve upon your pet's dental hygiene for fresh, happy mouths!
When not in the office, Dr. McCaughan enjoys hiking, mountain biking in Redwood Regional Park, swimming and competing in a horseback riding discipline called Three Day Eventing.
