Dr. Kimberly Curtis: Bonding with Your Healthy Pet
A small woman with a large shoulder bag and a plastic tackle box rang our bell.It was home visit veterinarian, Dr. Kimberly Curtis, to give Diamond, our Anti-Cruelty Society puppy, her check-up.She graciously accepted the doggie kisses and got to work on the ever-squirming bundle of spaniel.
A licensed veterinarian, Curtis has made a life-long commitment to animals.She is founder of Handle with Care Home Veterinary Services and has taken additional education and certification to offer holistic medical services to dogs and cats.Early in her career, she happened on an alternative healthcare session at a national vet education convention."I listened in, and I was hooked!"
Combining nutrition, homeopathy, Chinese herbs, and animal chiropractic with traditional veterinary medicine, Curtis aims to treat the whole animal.By serving her patients and their "companion humans" at home, she is able to view the whole context of the human-animal interaction, a broader picture than is available when animals are brought into a vet's office.
She acknowledges, "As I got into the idea of home veterinary services, I found initially that this service worked as a great option for clients who were elderly or disabled.It's also good for puppies or kittens, so you don't expose them to problems before their immune systems are ready.Eventually I found that I developed a different relationship with clients, got a better view of the human-animal bond, and was able to look at the whole animal and much of its lifestyle to figure out why an illness is happening."
However, the vet faces her challenges.As a medical professional, Curtis bemoans the disposable medical culture, where needles for one time use come wrapped in numerous layers of plastic.She currently sees no alternative for maintaining the standards of care."I'm not comfortable with other ways of doing things, especially related to the sanitation issues, although I'm always looking for alternatives," she says.
"One of the things I struggle with, and I know other holistic practitioners do as well, is putting a dollar value on these holistic services.Our goal is to help the pet (or person) cure themselves.I know some of these therapeutic measures can help pets," she says."At the same time, it's a challenge to create a reasonable fee structure to make a living."
In addition, Curtis is a vegetarian and has been for more than a decade.She isn't vegan, but is moving in the direction of not consuming any animal products.However, her canine and feline companions are not vegetarian."I made a decision to feed my little carnivores the diet closest to what they would receive if they were able to hunt and forage naturally.So I go to the store to provide them a raw meat based diet from organic, humanely raised animals.Raw meat is more suited to dogs' and cats' digestive systems," she says."This is a decision I struggle with, and this is the compromise I have come to."
