Our Veterinarian Dr. Michael Dym

I only recommend Dr. Michael Dym who IS accepting new clients http://doctordym.com/

Dr. Dym has been our vet for the last 7 years and has seen us through bone cancer that did NOT spread which is totally unheard of. In fact, our Fu-Man lived another 6 years and passed away at 15 years old in Feb. 2020. Fu and all of our dogs in Michael’s care had wonderfully full and vibrant, long lives. Dr. Dym has also cured seizures, tremors from vaccines and multiple aged lick granulomas in our dogs and much more, all holistically. We work via phone consult.  http://doctordym.com/

I also must mention Dr. Stephen Blake http://www.thepetwhisperer.com/ though he is not accepting new patients he may be able to refer you to a colleague.  These men are truly outstanding and brilliant vets!

Another wonderful and amazing vet is Dr. Annette Richmond in Carmel, Ca. She gave Fu back his mobility with her very special gift of acupuncture. Our dogs love Dr. Annette and so enjoy their appointments with her. She also offers water therapy, laser and is the honey hole for supplements and raw foods. Have you ever seen a dog pull their guardians into see a vet?Just sit in the parking lot outside her office and watch =). Dr. Deb Sell is there on Fridays for chiropractic clients. She is another amazing force.

Beware of Fauxlistic vets, they will get you in the door to take your $ and turn out not to be holistic. Please be your animal’s advocate and speak up. Any vet pushing vaccines, steroids or flea, tick or heartworm poisons is NOT holistic. It seems everyone is trying to step on the holistic band wagon and just because they hang a holistic sign out their door does not mean they are true holistic vets.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a list I copied from the San Francisco Raw Feeders group

Below is a list of SFRAW recommended vets, and other pet health care providers (listed by modality in alphabetical order), that are supportive or tolerant of feeding a raw diet. Please be aware that these vets and only these vets – not the entire clinic or hospital – are ones we recommend. Other vets in the same office can be down-right anti-raw or even (gasp) pro-Science Diet!

Those marked with an (*) are highly recommended by Kasie.
