About Dr. Jeannie
Are you confused by the ever-growing maze of natural health modalities? Are you giving your dog one thing after another and still not seeing good results? Have you consulted with numerous conventional veterinary practitioners and your pet is still not well?
With a better knowledge of nutrition fundamentals and natural remedies used when indicated, the animals in our lives can live longer, happier, healthier lives.
Dr. Jeannie Thomason is a certified, animal naturopath who has been educating dog owners and providing naturopathic ( holistic, natural) animal care since 2003 via her consultations, articles, webinars and this website . She also offers tested and proven, natural products when necessary.
Dr. Jeannie believes that we need to ask ourselves "What is in it for our pets?" Let's take ourselves out of the equation and honestly ask - what is truly the best lifestyle, diet, relationship for our companion animal? What is best for the pet, as meets their species specific needs?
As an animal naturopathic practitioner, Dr. Jeannie’s goal is to help you detect the root cause of your pet’s physical, emotional and/or behavior problem and then use nature's laws of health and remedies to assist your pet's own immune system to re-balance, harmonize and then maintain health.
Her focus is on putting the animal's needs first by taking a "wholistic" or naturopathic approach and honoring him as the species he is. Honoring the pet as such is by far the best gift you can give him.
Having worked with several species of animals for decades, Dr. Jeannie specializes in species specific nutrition and has a passion for dogs. She has noted an important fundamental–that left to their own resources or in the wild, animals tend to thrive. Sadly, it is in the care of people that things most often go wrong. Well-intentioned but misinformed animal owners are the cause of most nutritionally based, degenerative health problems due to lack of knowledge of true, species appropriate nutrition and the over-use of vaccines and chemicals.
Based on years of education, experience and scientific study, Dr. Thomason provides consultations and information on proper diet and care of your animal companion. She knows that communication requires clear understanding, so he provides the animal owner with the background information they require to properly provide for the needs of their pets. Dr. Jeannie Thomason brings a unique insight to evaluating animal feed and food products. Nutrition fundamentals are unchanging, and a clear understanding of the animals species is the key to vibrant health.
The aim of her consultations is to empower you, the owner/care giver with the knowledge and resources to manage the health and wellbeing of you pets via her consultations
Naturopathic/Holistic Dog Care
. While veterinary medicine is by nature crisis oriented, naturopathy is not.
For those who have only ever known conventional pet care methods, the natural approach may at first seem to go against almost everything you know. This is because conventional methods tend to have been developed from the human perspective and based on treating symptoms.
The truly holistic or naturopathic approach looks at and works with "the whole animal", in a natural way that ignites the body's internal healing force and stimulates its natural abilities to heal itself. To just eliminate the symptom is NOT the same as elimination of the cause or dis-ease that produced that symptom or symptoms in the first place.
While Dr. Jeannie's passion is to assist you in preventing health problems in your pets. Most of her clients have been owners of dogs, cats and parrots who have not improved with conventional veterinary treatments at their regular veterinarian.
