How to set up a consultation
The best way to reach me is through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (709)7641416.
Please send me a brief message explaining the nature of your animal's problem and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I respond to your inquires and appointment bookings in order of emergency and ongoing treatments.
Please be aware that the email address is to set up appointments and that I won't answer to consultations through this route.
What to expect from a consultation
First consultations take 45 minutes to one hour depending on the case. Follow up and re-check visits usually take 20 to 30 minutes, although they might be longer in complicated cases. Acupuncture and rehabilitation treatments take 30 to 45 min depending on the case.
During our first meeting I will assess the possible need for any conventional veterinary medicine testing, diagnostics and treatments if necessary and will refer you to your conventional veterinarian for these services.
Many current conventional veterinarians see the value of alternative healing practices and are open to working with an integrative approach to provide the best care for your animal companion.
Home consultations allow me to assess your pet's environment, your lifestyle and family dynamics, which play a very important role in his/her health. Some patients especially benefit from this service, i.e. if they are large animals with mobility issues, or cats that get easily stressed out while being transported.
Long distance consultations
If you are far away from St. John's and you don't have any holistic animal health provider nearby, you might still benefit from my advise through a phone or online consultation. Contact me and we will set it up if I think it can help you.
