Make an appointment
If you are a new client who is interested in homeopathy or acupuncture for your pet, please fill out the online pet history form which includes the homeopathic treatment acceptance letter. We will call you back ASAP to set up an appointment.
Please email or fax back the:
- Conventional medical records with test results must be received BEFORE an appointment is scheduled so Dr. Hershman can review them ahead of time for a more informed consultation.
- Please print, fill out, and return the Pet History and Acceptance Letter, and records to the office by email or fax. It will take you approximately 5-15 minutes to complete depending on the health of your pet.
Consultation for Your Dog and Cat
Please call the office for price quotes for homeopathic treatment, pet acupuncture & conventional exams.
The homeopathic initial consultation is most time-consuming and depending on the complexity of the case, it can take 1-2 hours. This includes gathering historical and current information, including physical and mental symptoms; phone and email consultations with you and your veterinarian and analysis time to decide a treatment approach.
After your pet is examined, a homeopathic medicine will be prescribed or acupuncture performed, along with a recommended natural diet and appropriate nutritional supplements.
Dr. Hershman will do house calls for special cases only. Please call Natural Vet for Pets, P.C. if you have any questions (ie: housebound geriatric clients or patients, euthanasia).
House calls are available in Rockland County, Westchester County, Bergen County and the Upper West and East sides of New York City.
To be able to do this successfully, I must talk to you at some length to determine the pattern of illness that your animal is suffering.
It is important to have pet insurance BEFORE your pet has a problem since they do not cover pre-existing conditions and emergency hospitals can be expensive. You pay your vet for their services then send in the claim form and invoice to the insurance company. Most pet insurances will reimburse you for 30%-50% of your bill and some 80%-90%.
Recommended providers: Nationwide Veterinary Pet Insurance, ASPCA, Embrace, Figo cover a percentage of wellness and illness whereas Healthy Paws covers only accidents or illnesses.
