Dr. Laura Dominguez
DVM, MSc, CVA
Dr. Laura is a holistic veterinarian who has been working in the animal field for 27 years. Trained in Barcelona (Spain) as a conventional vet, she initially focussed her profession on Wildlife Medicine and Rehabilitation in Europe and North America. When she moved to Newfoundland in 1994, she completed her Masters in Biopsychology at MUN and continued her work on wildlife conservation, while pursuing her North American veterinary license. She then redirected her career to the small animal practice, and after a few years of working with the limitations of Western allopathic medicine, she expanded her training to holistic medicine. She also trained and certified as a veterinary acupuncturist at the Chi Institute in Florida, US. Dr. Laura bases her integrative practice on the body, mind and soul healing paradigm, encompassing the physical, emotional and mental health. Her medical work focuses on lifestyle, nutrition, the physical/mental/emotional environment, and preventative medicine. She also practices Traditional Chinese Medicine/Acupuncture to help the healing of her patients.
