Holistic veterinary services
Recognized authority on homeopathic veterinary medicine and holistic treatment of animals
Certified veterinary homeopath
Dr. Stacey Joy Hershman is a recognized expert in the field of homeopathic veterinary medicine. Having studied with Dr. Richard Pitcairn, she continues to practice homeopathy in her veterinary practice and uses homeopathic remedies and nutritional therapy to treat animals holistically rather than use conventional treatments that mask symptoms.
Certified veterinary acupuncturist
Acupuncture for dogs and cats helps stimulate the immune system of weakened animals. Acupuncture works well to alleviate pain in dogs with slip discs, paralysis, pre- and post-op hip and knee surgery and arthritis. Electro acupuncture is also available.
Both acupuncture and homeopathy are natural alternatives which have no negative side effects like cortisone and other conventional drugs.
