A growing number people and pets are turning to homeopathic medicine as a safe and effective alternative to conventional medicines. Homeopathic remedies work in the exact same way as they do for people. In general, animals are healthier than people and heal quickly when given the correct homeopathic remedy. The aim is to make your pets as healthy as they can be, by bringing balance back to the systems. Kimberly works with animals in her office, as house calls or over the phone.

“The two biggest factors in the fitness decline of our pets over these generations has been the severe overuse of multiple vaccines and nutrient poor, toxin filled commercial pet foods. We have also failed to address the underlying cause of illness by only suppressing symptoms with antibiotics, cortisone and related drugs, so the disorder progresses and goes deeper. Homeopathy offers a viable alternative in truly curing pets and making their bodies healthier.”
