Dr. Evelyn is an integrative holistic veterinarian who uses food and nutritional support as medicine for her patients.
After healing herself from the damage caused by two autoimmune diseases using only diet and herbs, she realized the power of food to heal. Using the principals she learned from her own struggle, she then healed her older cat of pancreatitis and inflammatory bowel disease. By changing Phoebe’s diet and adding some nutritional supplements, she noticed in addition to healing her gut issues, that the excess weight and skin sensitivity that had been part of Phoebe’s life since she was just under a year old, disappeared. She knew then that she had to use this approach on her patients. They responded in the most amazing ways!
Her passion for nutrition has led her to create a nutritional consulting business for pets. Her website http://petnutritiondr.com provides information on choosing pet foods to optimize health through food choices. She includes topics ranging from the dangers of obesity to the concerns about genetically modified foods. Her goal is to prevent many of the chronic conditions that now appear in our pets, by providing information to help pet parents choose the proper food and supplements for optimal health.
She has been featured in Reader’s Digest and has been a guest on Your Vital Pet and Holistic Actions for Animals. Dr. Evelyn is an expert contributor on Dream Dog CBD and on the advisory boards of Animal Essentials and Ion*Biome.
She provides nutritional consulting directly with pet parents to help them understand their pet’s current condition and the ways they can improve it through diet, supplements and environmental adjustments. When needed she formulates individualized, balanced, whole food diets for those pets with serious illness or significant food intolerances; and sometimes for pet parents who want to do everything to avoid chronic disease In their furry family members.
By creating educational programs, she hopes to have a greater impact and reach more pet owners to give them back control of their pet’s health.
