WELCOME TO INNA VETERINARY ACUPUNCTURE
Inna Veterinary Acupuncture provides house call services for dogs and cats throughout San Mateo, Foster City, San Carlos and the surrounding areas. My mission is to help you and your companion pets enjoy a long, fulfilling relationship while offering the highest and most personal level of veterinary care available, all in the comfort of your home. I firmly believe in the power of the human-animal bond, and my hope is to nurture that connection between pets and their people.
I use an integrative approach to give my patients and their owners as many options as possible when treating illness and disease. As a mobile veterinarian, my goal is to ensure that pets have access to compassionate and fully supportive care. My practice focuses on geriatric care for older pets, but I’m happy to provide services to younger animals as well.
Through my practice, I bring veterinary care right to your home with comprehensive exams, pet vaccinations or vaccine titers, laser therapy, blood testing, medication administration and alongside a variety of veterinary treatments and diagnostics. For pets in their final stages of life, I offer animal hospice and palliative care to ensure that their golden years are calm and more comfortable. When it comes time to say goodbye, I can provide pet in-home euthanasia to make their passing as peaceful as possible. Working together with local partners, InnaVet offers a few pet cremation options to choose from to honor your pet’s memory.
ABOUT DR. INNA MAGNER
After earning my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in Europe in 2002, I moved to the US and obtained my US Veterinary license in 2005 from Purdue University. I did a small animal internship with Sacramento Animal Medical Group until 2006, at which point I started as a general practitioner with a focus on internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, dentistry, geriatric care, preventative care and pain management.
While searching for a non-invasive and alternative method for spinal pain, I became acquainted with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This opened me to the possibilities of using TCM and alternative modalities for my veterinary patients. I now use a holistic approach to animal healthcare by integrating Eastern and Western traditional methods. My methods include the use of acupressure, acupuncture, food therapy and herbs to support the health and vitality of my patients.
Subsequent to qualifying as a veterinary acupuncturist in 2015 via the Chi institute in Florida, I started Inna Veterinary Acupuncture, which provides house call and mobile veterinary services for dogs and cats in the Bay Area.
In 2018, I completed the food therapy course while continuing my pursuit of herbal medicine and other traditional approaches to animal health care. In March of 2019, I received my CVTP certification in Veterinary Tui Na from the Chi institute in Florida, which offers acupressure techniques that I can teach clients so they can apply the methods at home.
Aside from having a busy mobile practice, I periodically volunteer with Vet SOS Veterinary Street Outreach Services and Muttville Senior Dog Rescue. On the weekends, I enjoy doing beach clean-ups with my kids. In my free time, I like to explore the beautiful Bay Area outdoors with my family. My fur babies are two rescue cats named Shmill and Blueberry and a super energetic rescue dog named Amber.
Office Manager & Veterinary Assistant
I have had a passion for caring for animals since I was a little girl. I started out taking care of small animals and eventually worked my way up to cats, dogs, and even horses. Currently, I am studying to become a Registered Veterinary Technician, but I have been working with animals professionally since I was 17. Eventually, I plan to obtain certifications for rehabilitation and other specialty services.
In addition to working at Inna Veterinary Acupuncture and Mobile Medical Services, I am also a dog swim coach. I find both jobs incredibly rewarding, and I look forward to meeting you and caring for your precious pets!
I've been an animal lover ever since I can remember myself, and volunteered several years at Muttville, where I met Dr. Magner. Being a dog mom to two perfect fur babies, I find my role at Inna Veterinary Acupuncture truly fulfilling. In my past I used to be a project manager in the tech industry, leading various global projects.
In addition to working at Inna Veterinary Acupuncture, I'm also a fitness instructor, and I value the opportunity to be able to help both people and animals improve their health and well being,
This is a review for Dr. Inna Manger at Inna Veterinary Acupuncture and Mobile Medical Services.
Dr. Inna has a kind ear, she is generous with her care, she is insightful, she is interactive, and she maintains a healthy forward-looking approach with treatment of animals in her care.
My two dogs, Joshua (14.5 yrs) & TJ (4.5 yrs), both black Labrador retrievers, literally jump up at the opportunity to see Dr. Inna and literally can't wait to get out of the car and into her office. And, the best thing is that Joshua, who is receiving acupuncture from Dr. Inna for age-related mobility and general health, seems to have been given a second life.
In addition to Western veterinary methods, Dr. Inna has a wonderful toolbox of alternative approaches, including many Eastern medicine methodologies. So, if you're looking for a warm and inviting veterinarian who combines an effective blend of modalities, Dr. Inna rises to the top.
