After discovering acupuncture as an effective healing modality for my animal patients, I explored herbal medicine to augment or replace the harsh pharmaceuticals my patients were getting from their referring Veterinarians. I found herbal medicine incredibly potent, but natural and gentle. I am Certified in Veterinary Chinese Herbal Medicine by the College of Integrative Veterinary Therapies and IVAS. I trained in Herbal Pharmacy at Greenfingers Herbal Medicine Clinic in Phoenix, AZ, at David Winston's Center for Herbal Studies in Clinical Herbalism, and at Purple Moon Veterinary Herbal Apprenticeship in Duck, NC. I am Vice President of The American College of Veterinary Botanical Medicine.
I maintain an extensive herbal apothecary and formulate tinctures in small batches by hand. My organic and premium grade herbs are sourced ethically and go through rigorous testing for more than 350 pesticide residues and aflatoxins. They go through extensive laboratory chemical analysis and organoleptic testing to reliably determine correct species identification. My raw herbs are carefully prepared and traditionally processed. I have years of experience treating my patients in my veterinary acupuncture and alternative medicine practice with my custom herbal tinctures. I am now offering some of my most popular herbal preparations here in my online store.
