NO ONE wants to see their pet suffer!
Veterinarians WANT their patients to be healthy and thrive, but the fact remains, that our fur baby population is the sickest of any generation in the history of domestic pets. Dogs today are living 7 years shorter than they did 20 years ago, despite the fact that we have a pill for every ill and a diet for every disease!
1:1.65 dogs are suffering with cancer
1:3 cats are suffering with cancer
If we include other chronic degenerative diseases like arthritis, allergies, autoimmune disease and obesity, nearly 100% of dogs and cats have 1 or more of these conditions.
I have been practicing veterinary medicine for nearly 40 years. 20 years ago I was forced to
seek alternative therapies to help my own show horse who had saved my daughters life. I was determined to heal Lilly, but western medicine had no solutions to offer. I could not and would not accept this as truth!
My sheer determination to heal Lilly made me realize that just because "western medicine" had no solutions, there had to be something I could do for her. Seek and you shall find. As I
looked past the limitations of allopathic medicine, I found a vast world of safe and effective
therapies, all in the holistic medical world. I expanded my tool kit and began to integrate
alternative therapies with western medicine when appropriate. I like to say I was taking the best of both worlds and making something magnificent. For the first time in my career, I was
experiencing true healing for my patients.
I continued to learn, grow and seek for more answers. Everything I learned I incorporated into my small animal practice.
I went from diagnosing symptoms (I call it the name it, blame it, treat it with a pharmaceutical, medical practice) to understanding the bodies biology and where in those biochemical pathways were we causing damage, and where could we impact the system for improvement.
I believe knowledge is power! The only way to achieve the health outcomes we desire for ourselves and our fur babies is to regain our power, understand how the body works so we can make informed decisions.
I saw that people made poor or no changes for 2 basic reasons:
1. Lack of knowledge
2. Inability to design a sustainable action plan.
We learn soooo much that it is overwhelming, we don’t know where to begin, so we donothing to change. Or we make a change, things don’t go as planed and we give up, returning to the lifestyle that we are comfortable with, even though we know it is bad.
During the recent lockdowns from Covid, I was seeking a way to help more pet parents regain their “power” and be better advocates for their fur children.
This lead to the creation of an on line pet parent health consultation.
