Dr. Chalmers provides homeopathic treatment for dogs, cats and horses. In addition, she offers consultations about other health care issues such as nutrition, vaccinations, non-insecticidal flea control and new puppy/kitten care. All consults are by appointment.
Homeopathic consultations can be done in person or by telephone. If done by phone, we require a recent physical exam from your general practitioner, as well as a copy of the complete medical record. Consultations about other health care issues can also be scheduled (by phone or in person), and medical records are not necessarily required. These consultations take 15 to 60 minutes depending on what is needed.
The initial homeopathic consultation can take 45 minutes (for acute situations) to 120 minutes (for chronic cases). During this time, a treatment program is formulated, which includes dietary recommendations and instructions for supportive care. After the initial consult (and whenever a new remedy is needed), the doctor does a homeopathic analysis to find the indicated remedy. Although liquid remedies (LM potencies) are usually preferred, the whole range of potencies is available. We will usually mail you the remedy along with instructions. Follow-up consultations take 15 to 45 minutes and are scheduled according to the needs of the patient: in a few days or a few weeks.
All consultations and cases analyses are charged according to the amount of time spent by the doctor – the fee is $130/hour. Mention this webpage and you’ll receive a 10% discount off the initial homeopathic consult.
The philosophy at Holistic Animal Care is that homeopathic therapy offers the possibility of a deeper level of healing than is possible with conventional medicine. In addition, we are devoted to educating people about how to raise healthy animals. Many of the health care practices we have adopted over the past 50 years (commercial foods, vaccination, use of insecticides, etc.), actually contribute to the diseases that are so common today.
Dr. Chalmers received her DVM degree in 1984. After 3 years in private practice in Sonoma County, she entered a residency program in dermatology at the University of Georgia. She completed her training there and in 1991 became board certified as a veterinary dermatologist (Diplomate, ACVD).
Dr. Chalmers began her study of homeopathy in 1991, and in 1993 completed the first veterinary homeopathy course in this country (taught by Dr. Richard Pitcairn). She completed the training requirements established by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy and was certified in 1995 (CVH). Her practice is now entirely holistic. She has served on the AVH Certification Committee since 1997.
