Dr Judy, Holistic Veterinarian
This site is dedicated to the health of your pet. In my nearly 30 years of experience as a veterinarian, I have learned a great deal in both the traditional and holistic approaches to healing. Animals are amazing teachers and have a unique ability to heal.
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 as each animal is an individual that deserves attention to its own particular needs and constitution.
Proper nutrition is the foundation of good health. I am convinced that feeding fresh, whole foods rather than processed foods is essential to achieving optimal health. Holistic therapies such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, ozone therapy, flower essences, chiropractic care and laser therapy, used alone or in combination, can also be effective means of supporting the healing process.
I am not opposed to allopathic medicine. In fact, I believe that it can offer some true advantages in certain situations. I do not, however, believe that it is a proper foundation for optimal health and should be used in combination with a more holistic approach.
This site is written to communicate general concepts that will apply to many pets. For more specifics about your pet, I do offer individual consultations for specific medical conditions and nutritional advice.
