A Holistic Approach to Veterinary Medicine.

Owner and practitioner Dr. Janet Varhus has been working in the Arkansas River Valley since 1998. Since 2001 Animal Care Clinic has been located in Poncha Springs under the name of Animal Care Center.

The clinic AAHA accredited since 2003, provides many traditional, regenerative and integrative services such as wellness exams, dentistry, surgery, acupuncture, Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM), stem cell therapy, platelet rich plasma injections, ozone therapy, and laser treatments for small animals and equine.

The combination of traditional Veterinary Medicine with the alternative techniques helps ensure your pet’s health is viewed in a holistic manner. We focus on treating the whole animal, not only the ailments. At ACC we take quality of life seriously, our doctors  strive to educate owners about health issues, stages of life and provide the foundation of knowledge for you to care for your pet.

Our office hours are 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday with an on-call veterinarian for emergencies outside of office hours.


Relaxed care



At ACC there is a noticeable difference. Our lobby and exam rooms are set up to make your pet feel at ease.

We have three treatment rooms. Two rooms are set up to accommodate standard procedures- equipped with examination tables and comfy seats for owners. The third room is reserved for alternative therapies. It is set up to allow pets and owners a comfortable sofa to lie on during treatment. Here your pets get to be on the couch for their acupuncture, laser treatment or veterinary orthopedic manipulation (VOM).

We believe that a calm pet will respond better to treatment, build a better relationship with our doctors and learn that a trip to vet doesn’t have to be stressful.
