Your profession is not what brings home your paycheck. Your profession is what you were put on Earth to do with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling.”

—Vincent Van Gogh

Welcome! My name is Kathleen Blackshear and I have a calling: to heal and help restore true health and vitality to your beloved pet. To accomplish this, I bring a mix of tools and skills—nutrition, supplements, herbs, acupuncture and medications—as makes sense to meet your pet’s needs.

My approach is to meet and treat your pet at your home or office. This benefits your pet by avoiding the stress of travel and unfamiliar circumstances. Seeing your pet in its everyday environment and interactions results in quicker and more accurate diagnosis, and I believe yields better outcomes.

Plan on 45 minutes for the initial consultation, which includes taking time to understand the scope of the problem, and conducting a through physical exam. With your input, we create a treatment plan.
