Dr Judy, Holistic Veterinarian
I am committed to providing the best care possible for each of my patients. Though trained in traditional medicine, I now believe strongly in a holistic approach to veterinary care. Nutrition, homeopathy, Western and Chinese herbal medicine, flower essence therapy, chiropractic and acupuncture have become the mainstays of my practice.
I believe that disease is a result of an imbalance in the body and that the most effective means of treating disease is to support the body’s natural healing process. This process will vary with each pet, even if the presenting symptoms are similar. Each animal is an individual and requires attention to its own particular needs and constitution.
Allopathic medicine typically treats only the symptoms of disease and does not address the individual needs of a pet. Alternative therapies such as nutrition, homeopathy, herbal medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic care, laser therapy and emotional support, used alone or in combination are an effective means of supporting the healing process.
