Dr. B lives in the country south of Fort Worth where she
moved to avoid city restrictions on the number of pets.She
shares 5 wooded acres with her
4 dogs, 3 cats, a feral cat colony, a fox den, several raccoons, opossums, and a multitude of wild birds.Needless to say, she
is an animal lover and has rescued, treated, spayed & neutered countless animals over the years.Dr. B is also a real people lover and enjoys getting to know clients as well as their pets.
Although Dr. B has a strong foundation in traditional veterinary medicine, she

believes there is a strong connection between the body, mind and spirit and that it is important to consider all aspects when formulating treatment.She
is also a firm believer in the importance of good nutrition, including appropriate supplementation, to achieve maximum health and vitality.
