About this Episode

This is the first episode of the Wholistic Approach to Pet Care: Part II. Dr. Sue Howell joins us to talk about whole foods in a veterinary practice based on her professional experience integrating whole food therapies with conventional medicine. Dr. Howell compares whole foods versus processed foods in pet feeding, explains why pet diets are not “one size fits all,” and describes what makes a quality supplement for pets.

Additionally, Dr. Howell proposes how a veterinarian can start a nutritional discussion with pet parents, as well as how to feel confident in the beginning stages of adding whole food-based supplements to a treatment plan. Lastly, Dr. Howell shares her personal experiences of the rewards of utilizing whole food nutrition in practice.

About Our Guest

Sue Howell, DVM, CVFT, CVA, began integrating whole food therapies with conventional medicine over 15 years ago, a transition that revitalized her passion for veterinary medicine. This experience led her to the opportunity to educate other veterinarians about the power of whole foods. Her interest in wholistic medicine has expanded to include certification in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine acupuncture and food therapy from the Chi Institute, and professional level and advanced clinical training in Nutrition Response Testing from Ulan Nutritional Systems. In December of 2017, she opened Thrive Wholistic Veterinary Care, a practice dedicated to changing lives, one pet at a time, through nutrition, whole food therapy and acupuncture.

Scientifically driven. Education focused. Healing Inspired.
