The Holistic Veterinarian
Holistic veterinarians aim not just for health,
but also for resistance to disease. This can take time and some animals will
never be totally free of adverse characteristics, but should live
longer and healthier lives, with greater ability to fight off disease instead
of being victim to whatever comes around.
In practice this means an animal can have a so called fatal illness but have an
immune system that with the right
natural treatment can overcome the illness.
Homeopathy in Animal Care
Veterinary Homeopathic remedies work with the animal's
body and not against it and when used correctly should leave the body healthier
than it was before it was sick. Suppressive drugs
such as antibiotics and cortisone steroid leave
it weaker than before, although may have to be used in certain life threatening
In practice a homeopathic remedy will be prescribed for your
individual pet for acute or chronic conditions, and over a period of time, which depends upon how serious
the chronic condition is, there should be a gradual return to health and well-being.
There should be more energy, less disease symptoms, and ultimately none.
Other benefits include a shiny coat, more balanced emotions and better
teeth, and freedom from afflictions such as chronic allergies and inflammation.
Obviously this is not an overnight process,
and takes some time and commitment for both the veterinarian and the animal
caretaker. But the results should be a much healthier animal who lives
a long and healthy life as is possible.
The immune system which is encompassed in the term vital force
depends on a variety of factors. These include age of the animal, type
of disease, duration of illness as well as the innate vital force or qi
that the animal was born with. Drugs, poor nutrition,
constant vaccinations, chemical treatments for fleas and
ticks all undermine the immune system and should be avoided as much as possible.
Note from Shirley: "I own a
homeopathic kit with 100 remedies.
When my animals get sick or injured I always resort to the appropriate
homeopathic remedies to treat the acute condition with rapid results. My homeopathic kit has saved me
from countless trips to the vet. I use the same remedies for myself and my family.
A 50-remedy kit is also available. In
addition to homeopathy, I also use an immune modulating product which I use along with homeopathy
and which has saved my animals's lives when they were sick or injured as well as my own life when
I had a bout with encephalitis."Shirley

Dr. Will Falconer, D.V.M
. Certified Veterinary
Homeopath, Alternatives for Animal Health, Austin, Texas
. Dr. Falconer accepts
a limited number of new patients most of the year.
Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, University of Missouri 1980. Practice followed,
with the first seven years providing conventional medical and surgical care
to creatures large and small. Retraining in methods natural included certification
in acupuncture by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society, followed
by certification as a Veterinary Homeopath by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy.
Dr. Falconer has since 1992 dedicated his practice to classical homeopathy,
with animal patients around the globe. Dr Falconer also uses an immune balancing formula in his practice.
The philosophy of Alternatives for Animal Health is that we work with your
animal’s innate healing abilities to achieve an optimal state of health. This
is best accomplished by the smooth working together of doctor, care giver, and
animal. The doctor depends on you the care giver to carefully watch and report
on symptoms. He will use the information you provide to carefully guide the
course of homeopathic care for your individual animal. As no two animals are
exactly alike, even if they have the same diagnosis, we will focus on how your
individual animal manifests illness and health. This uniqueness will guide the
treatment according to the clear principals of classical homeopathy.
Vaccination issue - Vaccinations: See Dr. Falconer's
3 part analysis on vaccination issues
Question to Dr. Falconer: does vaccination (or over-vaccination) causes
overactive immune reaction (autoimmune disorder) or does it cause suppression
of the immune system?
Dr. Falconer: "The answer is YES. Probably both. Vaccination *confuses*
the immune system, as I point out in my
heartworm eBook. So,
it could go either way, or alternate over time between the two.
The immune balancing formula is a natural nutritional
product that help support the animal's immune system. A healthy immune system
is capable of helping the body heal itself. This supplement should be given
before and immediately after vaccination for at least a few weeks to help ameliorate
the confusion (when someone is faced with a mandatory vaccination, or has decided
they want to give one)."

Dr. Michael Dym, DMV, Classical Veterinary
Homeopathy -offers phone consultation - Experienced with the immune system
Dr. Dym is one of 250 veterinarians in the US trained in classical veterinary
homeopathy by Richard Pitcairn, DVM, PhD. Dr. Dym is a presidential scholar
graduate from Cornell University with his VMD from Penn. He is an active member
of the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy and the American Holistic Veterinary
"Over the past 40 years and 17 generations of dogs and, cats we are seeing
tremendous increases in chronic ill health in our pets that was rare back in
the early 1960's. Most of these illnesses revolve around breakdown in our
pets immune systems, and include chronic skin/ear allergies,
digestive upset, thyroid/adrenal/pancreatic disorders, seizures, gum/ teeth problems, degenerative arthritis, kidney/liver
failure, and cancer across all ages and breeds. We are also seeing a record
number of behavioral and emotional disorders including alarming and unexplained
fears/aggression., as well as difficulty focusing/training and paying attention.
The analogy of these compared with escalating immune/behavioral diseases in
children is quite disturbing. The two biggest factors in our pets' population
health decline over these generations has been the severe overuse of multiple vaccines and
nutrient poor and toxin filled commercial
pet foods. We have also failed to address the underlying cause of disease
by only suppressing symptoms with antibiotics,
cortisone and related drugs, so the disease progresses and goes deeper. Homeopathy offers a viable alternative in
truly curing pets and making their bodies healthier."

State of Veterinary "Vaccinosis" - Animal Diseases Caused by Vaccines
Dr.Charles E Loops
takes phone consultation for animals, large and small.
"After 10 years of traditional veterinary practice I became tired of having
no treatment for chronic disease, incurable conditions, and a plethora of allergic
maladies which seem to plague all veterinary practices. I was frustrated with
giving animals steroids such as cortisone
because I had no other solutions, or using antibiotics for infections
which I knew were of viral origin. At this time I had some chronic health problems,
which had been unresolvable allopathically, but they responded to
treatment by veterinary homeopathy. It took some time
but it worked.!
This is when my philosophy about disease changed and my interest in classical
homeopathy began. I studied with Richard Pitcairn, DVM, going to workshops that
he offered for several years. I completed a year of study with Linda Johnston,
M.D., author of Everyday Miracles who had a very successful homeopathic practice
in Ca.. I have studied extensively and continue to do so. I progressively added
homeopathy to my practice over a 4 year period and in February of 1992, I sold
this practice so that I could devote myself to veterinary homeopathy exclusively.
My practice is mainly by referral and 95% by telephone consultation. I have
treated thousands of cases using the principles of classical homeopathy and
I continue to find this system of gentle healing to be the most effective therapy
that has ever existed.
Dr Loops also offers alternative to routine vaccination with a
SCHEDULE FOR IMMUNIZATION
WITH HOMEOPATHIC NOSODES
Homeopathic vaccine antidote - By law, an animal must be vaccinated
against rabies every three years. To protect your pet, you can request from
Dr. Loops a homeopathic antidote to minimize or reduce
vaccine damage. The cost is $6.00 for single doses and $15 for 1/4 ounce
bottles for repeated dosing. I believe that sick animals or animals with a compromised
immune system can get an examption to rabie vaccines. Check with your local
animal control authorities.
Correctly prescribed homeopathic remedies can often undue the damage caused
by vaccines Homeopathy is noted
for its success to antidote or remove the toxic effects of vaccines and to re-establish
balance in the organism and restore health. Certain homeopathic remedies taken
after vaccination can minimize vaccine damage. A professional homeopathic vet
should be consulted for more information.
By law, an animal must be vaccinated against rabies every three years. To protect
your pet, you can request a homeopathic antidote to minimize the side effects
of vaccine damage from Dr. Charlie Loops. For rabie vaccine, the remedy is "lyssin".
The cost $6.00 for single doses and $15. for 1/4 ounce bottles for repeated
dosing. Some nosodes seem to work more effectively than others. None produce
titers against disease like a vaccination, so they are not vaccine replacements.
They do seem to moderate a disease condition if the animal is exposed, even
if they don't prevent it. Homeopathic nosodes are another option for guardians
who wish to avoid vaccinations. Nosodes cost $15. each and provide many doses.
They are dosed "as needed" and instructions are provided
from Dr. Loop's office. Telephone Consultations by Appointment
Dr. Patricia Jordan D.V.M is available to consult with you on a variety of
topics concerning the health of your pet. A list of topics along with their
description can be found in her website. .
Dr. Jordan has been a member of the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association)
for the past 25 years and a practicing veterinarian for the past 23 years. Dr.
Jordan has been on the front line of examining the effects of the veterinary
vaccine protocols in the United States; she has been licensed in over a dozen
states and has visited practices in over 13 states to observe first hand the effects of the
current vaccine protocols. She graduated from North Carolina State University
in l982. Large Animal Medicine and Surgery Externship at the New Bolton Center
University of Pennsylvania. Equine Medicine and Surgery Research Scientist for
the NIEHS (National Institute of Environmental and health Sciences) under Dr.
John McGlaughlin in Toxicology. She was nominated for the 1986 Pubic Health
Epidemiology Award for the NC College of Veterinary Medicine Certified in Veterinary
Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine & Herbology, Tui Na
and a student of the Chi Institute in Reddick, Florida under Dr. Huisheng Xie
and South China University of Agriculture, currently finishing the Master's
Program in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. Establishing four different
veterinary facilities, originating six new veterinary facilities, certified
by the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board.
Dr. Jordan is the author of
of the Beast: Hidden in Plain Sight. She cites research studies showing
that annual vaccinations are totally unnecessary and especially in respect of
rabies where over vaccination is causing genetic changes and violent behaviour
in animals including horses. This annual regime financially benefits veterinary
business practices and pharmaceutical companies at the expense of pet owners
and their suffering, short lived companions. Dr Jordan also shows the connection
between mass vaccinations and subsequent outbreaks of the same disease in the
treated population which was vaccinated proving that vaccinations do not stop
disease but actually cause it to spread.
Dr. Jordan's blog contains informative
articles such as Evidence of Damage from Pharmaceuticals, Replace Dangerous
Drugs with Botanicals, Critical Nutrients Depleted By Prescriptions.
Dr. Dee Blanco DVM
Dr. Blanco was trained at Colorado State University at a time when alternative
medicine for animals did not exist. It was only after her own illness did she
find homeopathy, which dramatically shifted her understandings about health
and healing. She has practiced Holistic Medicine for most of her 28 years as
a veterinarian with a focus in Classical Homeopathy and Nutritional Therapeutics.
She consults via telephone from Santa Fe, New Mexico and has certifications
in both Homeopathy and Acupuncture
"I am currently available for telephone consultations and use Classical Homeopathy
and Nutritional Therapeutics for all types of animal dis-ease; physical and
emotional. Although I am trained in allopathic medicine my first choice is to
use natural methods that will assist the body’s already hardwired ability to
heal. The Homeopathy stimulates the body's healing response, the nutrition and
supplements feed the body, together they potentiate a more vital healing response.
I am certified in Veterinary Homeopathy, trained by Dr. Richard Pitcairn, as
well as other human homeopaths. I am also certified in Veterinary Acupuncture,
trained through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS). Currently
I train with many of the country's foremost researchers and teachers in Functional/Nutritional
medicine. Although I consult clients about Homeopathy, Nutrition and Nutracueticals
my primary focus is education. It is through understanding the fundamentals
of how to truly prevent illness we achieve the most resiliant and resistant
body. It is also through these concepts as to how the the body maintains and
sustains health, we can raise our expectations of wellness and vitality in our
animals and ourselves.
Dr. Dee Blanco, D.V.M - "You take healthy animals and often very quickly
after you vaccinate, you can see simple things like itching of the
skin or excessive licking of the paws, sometimes even with no eruptions
and licking of the air. We see a lot of epilepsy/seizure, often
after a rabies vaccination. Or dogs or cats can become
aggressive for several days. Frequently, you'll see
urinary tract infections in cats, often within three months after their
[annual] vaccination. If you step back, open your mind and heart, you'll start
to see patterns of illness post-vaccination."
Jeffrey Levy, DVM
"My clinical practice is devoted exclusively to homeopathic treatment for
dogs, cats, and horses. I also teach advanced veterinary homeopathy in seminars
around the U.S. Homeopathy is a powerful and sophisticated system of medicine.
With homeopathic remedies, I have been successful in treating a wide variety
of health problems, including many that are very serious or for which there
is no conventional treatment.
Treatment with allopathic drugs (antibiotics, steroids, hormones, etc.) should
be avoided unless absolutely necessary. Corticosteroids (cortisone-type anti-inflammatory
drugs) are the most abused and dangerous class of drugs. Not only do they not
cure the underlying cause of the problem, they usually make the underlying problem,
that is, the real problem, worse.
The greatest harm of drug treatment is usually not so much the toxicity or
side effects as it is the effects of suppression. Allopathic (conventional Western)
medical thinking generally seeks immediate gratification: just make the symptom
go away. So the patient may be better in the short term, but is usually worse
in the longer term. Homeopathy is just the opposite: sometimes the symptoms
are worse in the short term (such as with aggravation or the reversal of a previous
suppression), but the real benefit is in the longer term.
A symptom, say itchy skin, is the body's response to a deeper problem. When a symptom is suppressed,
it is only the outwardmanifestation of the problem that goes away. Since the deeper problem is still there,
the body may, in time, produce the same symptom again. Another possibility is that, as a result
of the suppression, the deeper problem progresses to the point that a deeper, more serious symptom
is produced. So the itchy skin may go away, but then chronic diarrhea develops. If the diarrhea is
then suppressed as well, it may lead to, say, liver disease. But hey, at least the skin is cleared up!

of therapeutic tools and a holistic vision of medicine, in which the immune system has an important place,
to propose to my customers. Since 1998, I have created my own lab to imagine,
create and sell my self made food suppliants with medical claims to other vets,
in France of course and in Europe and Quebec as soon as possible. My lab's name
is Aqua Bio Vet. It is possible for me to offer distant consultation, I already
have done it, it is not a problem with good interacting.
My opinion is to vaccinate as less as possible, only when the epidemic risk
is real and if nothing makes me think that the immune system is able to answer
correctly to the injection. Especially, on horses, I don't vaccinate against
tetanus and flu each year as recommended, but every three years, that is all.
We vaccinate too much in France. I advice raw food diet when it is possible

The patient is seen as a member of a larger living environment in which the many varied dynamic forces of life take place. Attention is placed on encouraging rebalance at a higher level of Wellness rather than manipulating the symptoms of disease. Episodes of disease are periods in which rebalancing is attempting to take place. Nurturing the system through making more energy, life force and intelligence readily available (through nutrition and natural remedies) help shift the scale of life's dynamics to one of enhanced healing enabling the removal of the symptoms of disease.

even though he may not be able to see your animal in person. To be able to do
this successfully, he usually will need to talk to you atsome

animal is suffering. Once he understand the situation, a homeopathic medicine
is prescribed along with a recommended diet and appropriate nutritional supplements
Veterinary Success Using Focusing on the Immune System
We all know the importance of an optimal immune system, not only after surgical
procedures or fighting disease and serious illness, but also in your patient's
or pet's everyday wellness. Recent in vitro and in vivo studies on a
natural immune booster documented an increase in Natural Killer cell activity in humans. The NK cell is
the animal's first line of defense against many pathogens... bacteria, viruses,
parasites, and of course malignant tumor cells.
Charles W. Brown, DVM writes: "My colleagues and I have found this
product to be very effective in modulating the immune system. It
is a "soup" of immune-modulating factors, which contains a leukocyte-type molecule
that can passively transfer immunity from one mammal to another by stimulating
cell-mediated immunity and is antigen specific."
