Dr. Will Falconer, D.V.M
. Certified Veterinary
Homeopath, Alternatives for Animal Health, Austin, Texas
by Appointment 512-288-5400
Dr. Falconer accepts a limited number of new patients most of the
year. His Contact Page
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
Transfer Factor 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
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.
Transfer Factor 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. Transfer Factor 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). By giving the immune system with Transfer Factor, the
immune intelligence should be able to better sort through the confusion, though
I'm not sure that's measurable."
Dr. Michael Dym, DMV, Classical Veterinary
Homeopathy -offers phone consultation - Experienced with
Factor email: firstname.lastname@example.org
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
Medical Association. www.doctordym.com/
"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 sup pressing 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."

takes phone consultation for animals, large and small. 38 Waddell Hollow
Rd., Pittsboro, NC

"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 cortisone (danger of steroids)
because I had no other solutions, or using antibiotics
(danger of 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 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.

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
505-986-3434 Santa Fe, NM
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."

"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 outward manifestation 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!"

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
tetanos and flu each year as recommanded, but every three years, that is all.
We vaccinate too much in France. I advice raw food diet when it is possible

“After 15 years in conventional practice, I began to notice the ill effects
caused by yearly vaccinations and
the routine use of steroids and
antibiotics. I also realized that
an inferior diet was contributing to
the ill health of many of my patients. I was frustrated with the increasing
number of chronically ill patients which I was seeing and their poor response
to conventional treatment. This caused me to sell my conventional practice and
study Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, including Acupuncture, Chinese
herbal therapy, and nutritional therapy. While I found this to help many patients,
I was still seeking a more effective therapy for these chronically ill patients.
I studied homeopathy with Dr. Richard Pitcairn and completed his Homeopathy
Course for veterinarians. I found homeopathy to be a superior form of medicine
which effectively treats most chronic conditions. Combined with a customized
nutritional plan, I have found that homeopathy can dramatically improve the
quality of life for our animal companions.”

Betsy Harrison made the switch from conventional to alternative ways of thinking
about health and disease after having witnessed the remarkable results that
can yield without side-effects,
without invasive techniques. Dr. Harrison promotes a healthy diet which most
mimics the natural diet for dogs and cats, one of raw meat and raw meaty bones,
with some green vegetables. She's also aware that vaccinations by-pass all the
body's natural defenses and can cause chronic disease.
Veterinary Success Using Transfer Factors
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 Transfer
Factor Plus documented an increase in Natural Killer cell activity in humans
by 248% and 269% respectively, over baseline immune response. 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. Transfer factor
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. Richard Bennett, Ph.D.,
an Infectious Disease Microbiologist and Immunologist from the University of
California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, believes this could be the
most significant development in animal health care in decades. We have a great
number of veterinarians and clients who are experiencing very positive results
in a broad area of disorders, including periodontal. "

My 11 year old dog, Shasta, suffered a series of illnesses last year and a stroke
this year. The stroke left her paralyzed in the hind legs. I treated her with
homeopathy and herbal extracts and she recovered within a few hours. However,
her vitality was very low. I din't think she was going to make it through the
Spring. After a couple of weeks on the
Factor Plus (human formula) her energy level and vitaliy improved remarkably.
She appears to be back the way she was 2 years ago: frisky and playful. Shirley

Just like humans, domesticated animals like dogs and cats are affected by
the health hazards of modern living. Pollution, poor nutrition, stress and unhealthy
lifestyles can lead to a variety of illnesses and conditions that are very similar
to those experienced by humans. These days, emotional and psychological problems
like depression, anxiety, ADHD and behavioral problems are just as prevalent
in pets as they are in their owners. Similarly, physical ailments such as
diabetes, arthritis, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, cystitis, kidney
and liver disease, skin disorders, obesity, thyroid dysfunction and other
problems are becoming more and more common in domesticated animals. Many, if
not most of these conditions can be prevented by helping your pets to live a
healthier lifestyle. For pets already suffering from existing conditions, a
combination of lifestyle changes and natural medicine can work wonders!
Dr. Jerry Tennant, M.D. says that marine phytoplankton contains almost
everything one needs to sustain life and to restore health by providing the
raw materials to make new cells that function normally.

F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. - "Every function inside the body is regulated
by and depends on water. Water must be available to carry vital elements, oxygen,
hormones, and chemical messengers to all parts of the body. Without sufficient
water to wet all parts equally, some more remote parts of the body will not
receive the vital elements that water supplies. Water is also needed to carry
toxic waste away from the cells. In fact, there are at least 50 reasons why
the body needs sufficient water on a regular, everyday basis. Without sufficient
water to constantly wet all parts, your body's drought-management system kicks
into action. The histamine-directed chemical messenger systems are activated
to arrange a new, lower quota of water for the drought-stricken areas. When
histamine and its subordinate "drought managers" come across pain-sensing nerves,
they cause pain. This is what I discovered in my research that I mentioned earlier."

internal healing force and stimulates the body's natural abilities to heal itself

Holistic Animal Health and Optimum Pet Nutrition
A growing number of veterinarians state that processed pet food is the main
cause of illness and premature death in the modern dog and cat. In December
1995, the British Journal of Small Animal Practice published a paper contending
that processed pet food supresses the immune system and leads to liver, kidney,
heart and other diseases. Dr. Kollath, of the Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm,
headed a study done on animals. When young animals were fed cooked and processed
foods they initially appeared to be healthy. However, as the animals reached
adulthood, they began to age more quickly than normal and also developed chronic
degenerative disease symptoms. A control group of animals raised on raw foods
aged less quickly and were free of degenerative disease. For a return to health,
pets require a diet which strengthens the immune system and most closely resembles
that which they would get in the wild. It's really easy to do.
The Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy
The Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy was founded as a means to train other
veterinarians in the practice of homeopathy for animals. Since its creation,
the Academy has been instrumental in providing basic and advanced training to
veterinarians all over the world. As the numbers of trained practitioners grow,
this free organization provides an indispensable link between veterinarians
and persons seeking homeopathic treatment for their animal companions.

"Of the tens of thousands of veterinarians practicing in the United
States, many are incompetent, careless or both. Others fail to deliver
adequate care because their singular focus on profits makes them unwilling
to pay for qualified employees, equipment, supplies, etc. I have even
known of one vet who diluted her euthanasia drugs and another who re-used
single-use surgery supplies. Unnecessary deaths and suffering have become
commonplace." Diane Parrish - Law Offices of Diane Parrish - Veterinary
malpractice; injuries to animals.
Veterinary Malpractice - Protecting
Your Pet from Veterinarian Negligence
The difficulty in coping when a companion animal suffers from an injury—or
death—is compounded when you suspect that negligence or abuse by your
veterinarian may be to blame.
"Most of what I've learned about the holistic care and treatment
of my dog I've learned from Shirley's Wellness Cafe. This vast and detailed
resource is the result of a journey of natural healing that webmaster
Shirley used on herself and her family to completely turn their lives
around. Those lessons are applied here with full force for the benefit
of our canine companions. Raw food diets, detailed feature articles
on a wide variety of wellness topics, health reports, and studies are
all represented here in a slightly cluttered, yet home-style approach
that blends a first-person knowledge and passion for the subject with
a caring and nurturing writing style. Thank you, Shirley. The 'net's
a better place because of sites like yours."Gene Sower, Editor and
