Holistic medicine is different from conventional medicine in that it is more time intensive. 


A “typical” initial consult is usually about 30 minutes, although occasionally it may be as long as 60 minutes or as short as 15 minutes, depending
upon your knowledge of holistic care and the complexity of the case. The
charge is based upon time actually spent. (Please see price sheet for details
of initial consults.)

During the initial consult, you will learn a great deal about how to keep your animal healthy. We will discuss the five main causes of disease (vaccines, pharmaceuticals, flea and tick products, emotions and nutrition). If your animal is sick, we will uncover the factors that have contributed to the presenting problem. This is necessary to truly heal the disease and to avoid future relapses.

This knowledge will last you a lifetime and will undoubtedly save you thousands of dollars over the life of your pet and all future pets. Well pet and puppy/kitten visits are covered within this initial consult.


Holistic medicine does not suppress symptoms like conventional medicine, but rather works to strengthen the immune system to bring your pet
back to health. It is important that you understand this is a process and can take time, sometimes months, especially if your pet has been on several conventional drugs. Unless there is a very simple situation that can be cured by diet, supplements, acupuncture, cranial sacral or cold laser, most chronic diseases are addressed with homeopathy.

A homeopathic workup takes about 60 minutes during which time we review the entire life history of your pet in all his/her aspects: physically, emotionally, and mentally. This approach is detailed in “Demystifying Homeopathy.” It is very important that before you schedule an appointment you read this so you understand how homeopathy  works. This workup is done once in the lifetime of the animal. (Please see price sheet for details). 

An in-person follow up visit to the clinic is highly recommended one month after the initial workup. The first time we meet, much information is both given and received and can seem overwhelming. The follow up visit enables both you and I to delve deeper into the animal’s condition and will allow for better results. For your animal’s continued health, it is important to have bi-annual or annual in-person visits, although of course I am available as need dictates.

Between physical in-house visits, it is also important that we maintain phone contact. Initially phone consults are needed approximately every 2 to 6 weeks, although as we progress in treatment, they can often be as
infrequent as every 3 to 6 months. Phone consults usually last between 10 and 20 minutes although they can be longer as needed. (Please see price sheet for details).

The time and money invested in the initial visit with myself or another homeopathic/holistic veterinarian is an important investment in the
wellbeing of your animal. A typical initial investment for a sick animal is
usually between $700 and $1,000 exclusive of supplements.
