I have been a long time client of Animals First Hollistic Vet Service, not only because they offer full vet services as well as holistic medicines and house calls, but because Dr. Blankenship is very knowledgeable. She has been helpful working with me identifying behaviors of my cats in order to find the correct homeopathic remedies. Among the issues we’ve been able to solve are vomiting, lack of appetite, and biting. It’s comforting to know that although she would administer prescriptions if she felt it necessary, my cats can usually be healed with a less invasive treatment. The remedies are easily given at home and my cats receive them with no problem. I feel confident that they are in good hands at Animals First. I would recommend contacting Dr. Blankenship if you want to try a vet with excellent homeopathy skills, or for any other vet service you might need.
I love my vet, Dr. Lori Blankenship - Holistic Veterinary Service. I have been taking Chewbacca there for over 10 years and have an amazing experience every time I go. She uses Chinese medicine, homeopathic remedies, essential oils and conventional medicine if necessary. I know she is the reason why my 15 year old lab is still here, in good health for 15 years, enjoying his daily walks and playing tug of war with his little brother every day at least 10 times smile emoticon. I highly recommend her to all my friends.
Jordy was not going to live much longer due to old age and its related inevitable physical failures. But I’m certain Dr. Lori made it the happiest final months that Jordy could imagine: the best quality and quantity of food he could ever have dreamt of, and a vet who came to sit on his living room floor like a friend and keep him relaxed and unafraid. Thank you, Dr. Lori, for making me best friend’s last months as good as they could be and most importantly all about food and eating- Jordy’s definition of Heaven.
I travel 1.5 hours for this care. And I would travel to the other side of the country for this extraordinary veterinarian. Holistic care and Dr. Blankenship saved my cat!
Mina, our grand champion wire dachshund, was diagnosed with bladder stones. We decided to talk with Dr. Blankenship about alternatives to surgery. She developed a diet and prescribed Chinese herbs for Mina. Within a few months, the stones had totally disappeared. With the continued prescribed homemade diet developed by Dr. Blankenship, Mina has continued to be healthy and stone free for more than one year now and continues to win at dog shows.
If you want a veterinarian who will spend more than 10 minutes with you and your beloved pet and won’t quit until she finds the right treatment for the condition afflicting your friend, I highly recommend you make an appointment with Dr. Blankenship. I am quite certain you won’t find disappointment, just an answer. I always have.
Thanks to Lori’s loving care and her expert ability to use holistic and conventional medicine he was able to live a few years longer in good health and spirit. But the time came when his system couldn’t handle anymore and we had to let him go this past January. I can’t thank Dr.Lori and her team enough for giving me so much more time with him.
I always leave her office knowing my animal received the best possible care and with the knowledge that I am seeing a veterinarian who felt the same way about animals as I do. She has taken the time to learn about aspects of animal care of which many others know little. This means that, in my opinion, the level of care our beloved pets receive from Dr. Blankenship is unmatched.
