Your Grateful Pet
Grateful Pet is a mobile veterinary practice in the Denver Foothills that provides acupuncture for dogs and cats in the comfort of their own home. We are here to work with you and your regular veterinarian to help your pet move better and feel better. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about acupuncture or our services. We look forward to talking to you and helping your pets live their best lives.
Acupuncture has been around for centuries and is a wonderful complementary therapy for managing your pet’s pain and other ailments. Dr Ungar has a strong belief that Veterinary Acupuncture and other forms of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) can have tremendous effects on an animal’s quality of life.
Allow your dog or cat to experience the many potential benefits of acupuncture and watch them become a truly Grateful Pet.

Bella is lucky to have Lauren help her with her aches and pains! Lauren’s expertise and her love of animals has given Bella a better quality of life. She is a pretty tense dog but Lauren’s sweet touch allows her to relax and get the most out of the acupuncture treatments! I highly recommend Lauren and her acupuncture treatments to ease your pets’ aches and pains!
Emma has some stress and anxiety whenever I’m away and I feel so lucky to have Lauren in our lives. I tend to travel a lot and we treat Emma after I get back and sometimes before I leave and it seems to really help with her anxiety. She mellows out and relaxes immediately after the appointment. It truly is amazing. She also has a bad back from an old injury and regular treatments have really turned her back into her puppy self, free of pain and super happy!
I have known Lauren for years and she has recently started coming to give my older dog Ruby acupuncture. Ruby has always had bad joints and has always been a wild child. Having Lauren come to our home has been so great. I can see results with the way she moves and her mood is playful again. (This is helpful since I also have a puppy who won’t leave her alone!) I trust Lauren and recommend her to all of the pet parents I know. I am so thankful to know about this service and to have someone who loves my fur babies as much as I do!
Dr. Ungar has been a great gift to us and our cat, Valeroso, as he was having breathing problems and her treatments have been truly beneficial! Her professionalism, acupuncture treatments, knowledge in the field, and ability to connect with Valeroso are all superb!! Her home visits mean everything . . . as we’re able to get quality care for our kitty without the stress of being in a cat-carrier, going for a car ride and visiting the vet office!!!
