Animal House Pets 2726 University Ave – North Park (619) 295-8834 ANIMAL HOUSE PET STORE- WHERE DID IT ALL START? One question that we are frequently being asked is what made you open up a pet store? For “Ray” Raymond Busby it started as a vol- unteer at the San Diego Humane Society on Sherman Street when he was fourteen years old; where he had the opportunity to take care of many types of animals, includ- ing an African Lion, Seagulls, and many other exotic animals. If you ever get a chance to speak with Ray, ask him about his story about “saving a Spider Monkey”- it is quite amusing! However, from his experience at the Humane Society, a passion and a love for animals was born!

During his time at the Hu- mane Society, Ray brought home many different animals home as pets- Smuggling them home on the bus. Some of those of those animals that Ray smuggled home on the bus/ hiding them from the bus driver, include: a Goat, a Goose, a Miniature Don- key, an Iguana, multiple Guinea Pigs, and Rabbits. In Ray’s

words “you try hiding a Goat or Goose under your coat, hiding it from a nosy bus driver!” Drawing from his experience, passion, and love for Animals- Ray decided to open up Animal House Pet Store, so that he could work with Animals for a living, and enjoy his passion and love for animals. For Ray Busby, it was never a pipe dream of becoming rich or making millions, it was a simple desire to do what he loves!

Bodhi Veterinary Clinic 2200 University Ave – North Park (619) 225-5838 Acupuncture is an ancient healing modality that originated in China several thousand years ago which has modern applica- tions for people and non-human animals. Dogs and cats have 14 paired Meridians, or (Qi, pro- nounced “Chi”) energy pathways, which traverse the body. Each Meridian has specific functions and associated organ systems. By stimulating specific points along Meridians, energy blockages can

be cleared, allowing for increased range of motion and reduction in pain. Acupuncture treatments provide a safe alternative which can be used in addition to or in place of Western medications when pets experience adverse effects from certain drugs. In my practice as a small animal veteri- narian, I have used acupuncture to relieve pain and improve mobility in dogs suffering from chronic degenerative joint disease and disc problems. Acupuncture can also be used to help resolve or manage numerous other disor- ders, such as anxiety, seizures, asthma, allergies, and some condi- tions involving a compromised immune system including some types of cancer. In patients who are sensitive to needles, pressure can be applied to specific trig- ger points which also achieves a therapeutic effect. To maximize the therapeutic effect of acupunc- ture for a patient, appropriate herbs can be prescribed.
