About Us


Dr. Judy Morgan has been operating Clayton Veterinary Associates, located in Clayton, New Jersey,since 1993. Her second practice, Churchtown Veterinary Associates, opened in the fall of 2010. Dr. Morgan is a 1984 graduate of the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine and more recently, the Chi Institute of Veterinary Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. She has been practicing Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM), a form of veterinary chiropractic, on dogs, cats, and horses for over two decades.

Our philosophy at CVA is to integrate traditional Western medicine with traditional Eastern medicine to achieve a more natural and holistic method of treating our patients. Our ability to utilize both kinds of therapies offers our clients many more options than using a single method of healing. In many cases, using this approach also allows earlier identification and treatment of impending problems.

Treatments such as chiropracticacupuncturefood therapy, homeopathy, and herbal therapy can be combined with conventional Western medical techniques to offer a full range of treatments.

Both offices offer state-of-the-art digital radiography. X-rays can be taken and processed by computer in only 8 seconds, allowing immediate answers for the client. These images can then be downloaded onto a CD which the client can take home for viewing by their referring veterinarian or specialist.

The doctors and staff at CVA also welcome referrals from other doctors, as well as clients who are seeking alternative care. Our goal is to offer a longer, more active, quality lifestyle for your pets. We will be happy to speak with your referring veterinarian if desired. We will also be happy to answer any questions by telephone or e-mail.

Our holistic philosophies include minimizing toxins in your pet’s food, environment, and body. We do not push vaccines and we strongly recommend home-cooking or using natural, holistic, and organic pet foods. We offer Merrick, Orijen, Honest Kitchen, and Stella & Chewy’s raw food for purchase at our clinic, as we feel these are superior lines of foods that are not readily available through other pet food providers. Pets brought to our clinic can have a personality evaluation performed to determine which ingredients are best for them energetically. By feeding for personality you can support your pet’s weaknesses and optimize his or her health. Many chronic illnesses can be cured or prevented by a diet change alone!

The clinics also offer a large variety of natural and holistic supplements which are available when you visit or you can order online. Our wide range of supplements offers a natural and holistic way to support your pet’s diet and improve overall quality of life.
