Our goal is true integrative medicine. We will use drugs as a last resort, not as the first option. We prefer to utilize modalities that assist the body's innate immunological systems to heal itself. Herbal and other supplements are used to enhance health or restore wellness. Additional modalities used that our patients have demonstrated incredible benefits from include cold laser, infrared, and ozone therapy. We have a history of helping virtually every pet we see. If we cannot restore full function, in most cases, we can bring more comfort and buy more quality time.
I received my Veterinary degree from Cornell University in 1985. Following years of operating my own hospital in upstate New York, I fell in love with Southwest Florida and moved here in 1998, after turning my practice over to two other holistic vets. I am licensed in Florida, and a member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, the Academy for Veterinary Homeopathy, and the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association.
My purpose is to help clients keep their animal friends well and happy. Key to that is the annual wellness exam. Also, animals are more likely to stay well if their bodies and minds are given the best loving care by their people.
A complete examination of the patient and consultation with the client can discover or prevent many serious problems as well as extend life. A year of our time is at least 7 years in pet time. If your pet has not seen a vet in a year, that is equivalent to not being examined for at least 7 years. Because, for older animals our calendar month can be equivalent to a year of time in their shorter lifespan, some patients are better served by being seen more often.
