The Difference Between Holistic Vets and Allopathic Vets
One point I’d like to mention about allopathic vets versus holistic vets – homeopathy veterinarians go to the same schools as allopathic vets. After graduating from one of several veterinarian schools, a vet with a will to learn a better way to help our animals, will often sign up to a holistic veterinarians school to receive additional years of schooling and become a skillful homeopath, herbalist, acupuncturist, chiropractor and animal nutritionist. holistic vets are more educated then allopathic vets.
Homeopathy briefly explained
Samuel Hahnemann in the late eighteenth century gave us formalized homeopathy. The principle of treatment is that medicines which create similar symptoms, which are also produced by the disease, are treated by that medicine. This principle has been recorded since classical Greek times. This principle is called “like cures like”. Hahnemann carried on his work and investigations tirelessly, but could not accumulate enough evidence of medical cure using this system. It was in 1812 when he could show the results of homeopathy by treating 180 cases of Typhus. Since then the effectiveness of homeopathy has been proved in a very very large number of patients. The same principle has been extended to all kinds of life including animal life.

Russell Swift, DVM
I received my Bachelor’s of Science in 1981 in Microbiology from the University of Florida and I am a 1985 graduate of the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. After four years of practicing conventional medicine, I realized that there was little that could be done to truly help those suffering from chronic diseases. I began to look beyond the “box” of my training and learned that through improved nutrition many of my patients were “cured” of chronic skin and digestive disorders. Unfortunately most of my clients were more interested in “quick fixes”. With growing frustration and dissatisfaction, I left my clinical practice in 1991 to commit myself entirely to holistic healing. Over the ensuing years, I have studied most of the alternative modalities to some extent. I utilize Classical Homeopathy, Homotoxicology and Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation as my primary modalities. In pursuing my education, I have studied with Lou Klein, Jeremy Sherr, Dr. Rajesh Shah, the Predictive School of Homeopathy, Dr. William Ingram and a variety of other teachers1995. I have been a member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association and National Center for Homeopathy for many years. Currently I treat animals with homeopathy, homotoxicology, Schuessler cell salts, herbs and of course nutrition
On the personal side, I have a house call holistic veterinary practice in south Florida where I have lived since 1965. I also offer phone consultations to people and pets not in the local area. I am married and have four children. My wife, Lisa, and I are home schooling our three youngest children. Our eldest daughter is in college. I have written many articles and spoken countless times to a variety of groups on the topics of holistic health care and nutrition. I am continuously striving to improve my understanding of disease and health and how one becomes the other.
Jeffrey Levy DVM PCH
I have been practicing veterinary homeopathy exclusively since 1985, and have provided phone consultations since near the beginning. Back then, there were so few veterinary homeopaths that, for most of the country, phone consultation was the only way to access veterinary homeopathic treatment.
