Veterinary Acupuncturist Dr. Erika Halle
Veterinary Acupuncturist Dr. Erika Halle joins Angela today on It's A Dogs Life! After a youth spent being driven to achieve a veterinary degree, Dr. Erika found herself floundering in her first year of veterinary school. She had worked so hard to get there, and once there she discovered that she was utterly bored with the conventional solutions to pet health issues that she had come to be familiar with. For a few months, Erika considered dropping out and changing careers altogether until a classmate reintroduced her to her curiosity about complementary and alternative treatments. Suddenly a holistic veterinarian was born! Dr. Erika believes that conventional medicine has its place and is extremely important but, for many conditions, offers limited options. Because of this, her career has been dedicated to holistic medicine since before its official start. Dr. Erika graduated from Oregon State University in 2010 with her veterinary degree. Shortly afterward (2 months later) she completed the final session of the Chi Institute’s mixed animal acupuncture certification course where she learned the basics of acupuncture and traditional Chinese veterinary medicine (TCVM) for cats, dogs, horses, and other animals. Afterward, she continued her training by moving to Canada to work with the founder of the first established holistic veterinary clinic in British Columbia. Dr. Marlene was one of the groups of veterinarians who were the first generation of North American veterinarians trained in acupuncture, and she passed the wisdom of her many years of TCVM experience on to Dr. Erika.

The Original CrockPET Diet with Dr. Ruth Roberts
The Original CrockPET Diet with Dr. Ruth Roberts, Veterinarian, Pet health transformer. Her life’s work as an integrative veterinarian and holistic health coach for pets has been one wrought with tales of triumph, tragedy, and tail wagging. But, like most good veterinarians, it began with my deep love for my childhood pets. It almost seemed as though a life spent helping animals was my destined path. While in veterinary school, it became apparent to her that her role as a veterinarian went well beyond checkups and surgeries. Dr. Ruth realized that she was not only a doctor to these pets but their friend and advocate. Our pets cannot speak up for themselves, they can’t tell you what hurts, or what they think is best. And many times, the owner can’t either. Her job has always been to communicate what others have failed and to provide healing with compassion. But her textbook knowledge and many years spent practicing traditional Western veterinary medicine only took me so far until she was hurled into a whirlwind of sickness, learning, healing, and ultimate change.

No More Vet Bills with Nora Lenz
No More Vet Bills with Nora Lenz. The unfortunate truth is that a very powerful and wealthy industry has been built on our failure to keep our animals well. Health doesn’t make anybody any money, and that’s why we don’t get reliable information on how to keep our animals healthy. Instead, our continued failure is encouraged surreptitiously via advice from vets that raw diets are “dangerous” and commercial pet food is “scientific”. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is no “controversy” surrounding how dogs should be fed. There is only profit-motivated, deliberate obfuscation and ignorance on the part of those who make money from the status quo. Since the diet is the centerpiece of a healthy lifestyle, the first thing you should be thinking about if your dog has symptoms is transitioning him/her/them to a proper home-prepared diet.

The Holistic Vet Dr. Doug Knueven
The Holistic Vet, Dr. Doug Knueven today on It's a Dog's Life! Dr. Doug started with veterinary acupuncture as he had an interest in this therapy that was sparked by an after-hours lecture in vet school. After seeing the benefits of this strange healing modality, he completed courses in homeopathy, Chinese herbal medicine, and chiropractic. He also joined the American Holistic Medical Association and through their conferences, continue to learn more about holistic pet health. Today, for him the word health is more about lifestyle and less about what you go to the doctor to get. As excited as Dr. Doug is about alternative medicine, he has not thrown the baby out with the bathwater. He does see the value of Western medicine for certain situations. He practices integrative veterinary medicine which involves the use of the most appropriate treatment for the individual animal. As an integrative medicine practitioner, he has more tools in his kit to treat the many patients he sees. Along the way, Dr. Doug also realized that any given patient was not going to heal if they were not being fed properly. This led him into his own research into animal nutrition. He soon abandoned much of what he had been taught about nutrition in veterinary school, as that information is highly influenced by the major pet food companies. From his research and decades of experience, it is obvious that pets benefit from an evolution-based diet rather than the starch-rich, highly processed convenience pet foods most pet caregivers currently feed. Animals simply cannot be healthy if their bodies are not provided the raw materials and nutritional signals that are needed.
