Vaccinations Are Making Pets Sick

February 16, 2019

Vaccine reactions come in many forms. Often the veterinary industry does not recognize a clinical sign that happens after a vaccine as a reaction. Sorting out the clinical signs and treating them has become a focus of our work at Animals First Veterinary Service. Dr. Blankenship has approached many of these cases with homeopathy successfully. Together with Jana Wagner, she will discuss vaccines, reactions, and their treatment with homeopathy at this seminar.

Essential Oils for Your Dog or Cat

March 2019

The use of essential oils in pet care has become more popular in the past few years. Essential oils are one more tool in the toolbox for treating many conditions from simple skin irritations, to musculoskeletal problems, and even cancer. In this seminar we will discuss the safe use of essential oils in our patients. We will also discuss the use of the natural CBD or Hemp oil in veterinary medicine. What do we know and is it safe?

Diet & Wellness - Cooking For Your Pet

April 2019

In today’s world of pet food recalls, and a new awareness of food as medicine, we are presenting a talk to help you learn how to safely and easily cook for your canine companion. This talk will involve how to prepare food, what foods to prepare, and what to expect in the weeks and months after the diet transition.


Holistic Wellness

Personalized pet health and wellness programs for your beloved pet.


Diet & Nutrition

You are what you eat.

We believe the treatment of any medical or behavioral condition should always include a dietary evaluation. We can help formulate a nutritionally balanced, home-prepared diet for your pet.



To achieve the highest possible level of health.

Homeopathy treats the pet as an individual, with a holistic approach to care for the animal as a whole being, not only its symptoms. The goal is to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself through increased vitality. Homeopathic remedies aim to stimulate this vitality to help the body fight against disease.

Heidi, my 13.5-year-old dog, is still with me thanks to the care of Dr. Lori . Her holistic approach to care and knowledge of Chinese medicine, herbal supplements and acupuncture helped to balance Heidi’s various problems.
