We found Dr. Gabriel a few months after our 16 year old Westie got diagnosed with bladder cancer. Given Murphy was taking a particularly harsh NSAID as his main treatment for the tumor and at 16 yrs old, he had super senior status, we knew we had to take steps outside of the traditional treatment methods to protect his organs from damage from the meds. We also wanted to do whatever we could to boost his immunity, keep him comfy and hopefully try to find some additional ways to help him fight this cancer and avoid some of the other issues the cancer could cause. Our first visit with Dr. Gabriel was our very first visit ever with a holistic vet. And we are thankful still for taking that step of adding a holistic to Murphy’s vet team and especially thankful that Dr. Gabriel was the vet we found. Her involvement was instrumental for us to put all the pieces together for a comprehensive integrative treatment plan for Murphy. From the very first meeting, we were impressed with Dr. Gabriel’s knowledge, particularly on how to integrate the holistic supports within the traditional medicine treatments. She impressed us even more when after the visit, we received emails and texts updating us regarding additional research she did to further tailor the supports to Murphy’s particular needs; we felt Murphy was on her mind a lot throughout his treatment and that Dr. Gabriel was always brainstorming how else to help him. She encouraged us to reach out to her whenever needed (and we absolutely took advantage of that!) which eased a lot of our constant worry. And we very much appreciated how she reached out to other leading vets in bladder cancer treatment to ensure we had all the current knowledge we needed to make decisions for Murphy’s care. She also seamlessly coordinated with Murphy’s regular vet so we didn’t have that additional burden of keeping everyone informed what everyone else was doing, a stress caregivers frequently have to shoulder. Dr. Gabriel continued to deliver this level of support throughout her treatment of Murphy, and as guardians of this sick little dog, we can’t express how reassuring that support was, not to mention how it lessened our overall stress. In the end, Dr. Gabriel’s knowledge helped us keep Murphy going strong for 21 months post diagnosis, far, far exceeding his original prognosis, and he was just a couple months shy of his 18th birthday when he finally passed. But it was never about the length of time that we could keep Murphy going, it was about the quality of that time…and Dr. Gabriel understood that focus completely. She was instrumental in giving Murphy many, many happy and comfortable days while he fought this horrible disease and we were blessed to have her as such a tremendous resource and support. The next dog to find their way into our hearts will have holistic medicine as part of his life from day one with us…our eyes were opened with this experience as to the huge impact an integrative approach to overall health can have. And I would drive many miles to make sure we have Dr. Gabriel on the team again!

I have been using Dr. Gabriel for over 4 years now on my dachshunds. She was coming to my home, yes she actually makes house calls!, to treat one of my dogs who had two ruptured discs in his back. After surgery he still wasn't walking but we tried to see if the treatment would help. Well one day as she arrived to treat Wicket, Milo (in the picture) didn't come out to greet her as he always does. So I went to find him and he was just laying down so I picked him up and brought him to her. She examined him and he snapped at her when she checked his neck. She noticed him holding up his front paws and said he had a neck injury. So we treated him with some acupuncture as we also treated Wicket. Milo sat in my lap, shaking from pain until the treatment was over, about 45 minutes. As we took out the needles, he started to jump around in complete joy and was his old self and wanted a treat. I could not believe the way he reacted after just the one treatment. So we gave him some medication to avoid the inflammation and we was as good as new. Well, a few years later he really twisted his back. I took him to the vet hospital and they kept him for 8 days and treated him with steroids and anti inflammatory drugs. After bringing him home I noticed that he still wasn't walking around and I would have to carry him outside to go to the bathroom and he would just stand there and wait to get picked up. So after the medication was done and I saw no improvement I called on the healer and she came over that weekend. Milo got 2 consecutive treatments and I saw a great improvement as he would actually walk when he was outside and after the third treatment he was almost like new. He was actually running around and sniffing and scratching as usual. He is now on a maintenance treatment to keep him active. I think that from now on, I will just go straight to Dr. Gabriel and just avoid the lag time to get my dogs healthy. By the way, Wicket is actually moving his legs again even though it has been over 4 years since his surgery so who knows there might be hope yet. Well as long as Dr. Gabriel is around, I am sure it is possible!

I have a cat called Max who was diagnosed a few months ago with severe Kidney (Renal) disease. He is over 20 years old and wasn't given a long time to live. He was drinking excessively, going to the bathroom every few minutes, lethargic, not sleeping, etc. The Vet said the most that can be done is put him on a low protein renal diet or I can try having him come in to give him fluids. He would not eat this food. I then did some research and found Dr. Diane Gabriel. During my first visit, she did a few things, such as acupuncture, put him on a certain herbal supplement, and give him foods that are healthy, but that he will eat. After about 2 weeks, I started seeing results. He started getting back to his old self and was very active around the house. Over a few weeks he stopped drinking as much water, eats good, and back to his normal sleeping pattern. Although, he is older, Dr. Gabriel definitely turned him around and got him back to his normal self. I would recommend anyone who has this issue or other issues to see Dr. Gabriel. I rarely give reviews, but thought it was important for others.

Toby, age 12, enjoying an August early morning on the beach at Cape Cod. Toby has been an acupuncture patient of Dr. Gabriel to treat a leg / patella problem since spring 2015. The difference has been amazing and he looks forward to his 2x month sessions!

Our aging boxer, Angelina, was diagnosed with Cushing's disease and a thyroid problem. After trying unsuccessfully to medicate her we went to Dr Gabriel for acupuncture (on the advice from our regular vet). She responded well to the treatments and actually looked forward to going in to see the doc when we brought her to the facility for the appointments. She was eating well and gained some sorely needed weight back. We were given an additional six months with our girl which we will always treasure. It is great to know there are alternatives methods for treating our pets and in Dr Gabriel you have an incredibly warm and loving doctor to guide you along the way. Thank you doctor for your care and support.
