Patient: “OPAL”, Owner, Anne
From Anne: “Opal’s first visit to Dr St. Germain was one week ago. Opal is a nine and a half year old American Bulldog who had slowed down noticeably over the past year. What prompted me to take her to a holistic veterinarian was a chronic non-healing ulcer involving two toes of her right forefoot. Opal’s half-brother had had the same type of problem and conventional veterinary care was no help and he basically lived out his days with this affliction.
Dr St Germain evaluated Opal, and treatments at that visit included Chakra readings, acupuncture and laser therapy, plus Rx for ointment to apply to lesion. One of Opal’s main problems was overweight: three days of recommended goat’s milk cleanse and diet awareness resulted not only in a three pound loss over the week, but also increased vitality (noted independently by two observers!). By Opal’s second visit one week later the lesion had healed, chakras were more balanced and she was on track!
I highly recommend Dr St Germain, a compassionate and caring person, and a veterinarian who gets results!

This one of Dr St. Germain’s patients. It’s a wonderful story.
A HOLISTIC VETERINARY MEDICINE SUCCESS STORY: Victoria.
Our patient, Victoria is a beautiful, 10 year old Torti Point Himalayan cat, owned by Kate Anne.
Kate would like to offer the following testimonial for both Dr. St. Germain and the holistic treatment that saved her cat’s life. “Victoria has Mega Colon. Victoria was losing weight, vomiting and looked awful. Her hair was dull rough and matting. She was listless and puny. She got down to a frightening 5.9 pounds. My sister and a friend advised she looked so bad that I needed to put her to sleep as that would be the more humane thing to do. I couldn’t give up on her.
I tried conventional treatments of two liquid Meds 3 times a day. She maintained for awhile yet progressively got worse with more weight loss and vomiting. Thankfully, Dr. St. Germain is also a holistic veterinarian. She gave Victoria Ovine Placenta stem cell injections at the prescribed dose of one injection every week for 3 weeks.
She has done a near 180 degree turnaround! Victoria has gained weight, (she is nearly 8 pounds, now) she is eating, and her coat feels like silk. She’s running around and full of life again. I could even feel that her muscle mass has increased. We are also giving her a raw diet and never any dry food, which has also helped her heal.
I hope that people in America can learn to open their minds more to integrative holistic medicine and not solely rely on conventional treatments to treat sickness and disease. Being open minded saved my beloved Victoria. The proof is in the pictures!“
Thank you, Kate Anne. It is wonderful to see such a dramatic improvement in any of our patients. If anyone is interested in holistic medicine and/or a raw diet, please contact Dr. St. Germain.
For January 2016
PATIENT: “Frost”, Male German Shepherd 10 years old
From the owner: “I started taking Frost to Avatar Holistic Veterinary Services, to see Dr. St. Germain, in January of 2016. Frost was close to his tenth birthday and, as an over-sized German Shepherd Dog, he was having rear end mobility issues. He would stumble in the back end when walking, couldn’t get up in the bed or car without me lifting him, he would fall on his rear when squatting to potty. The traditional vet was suggesting NSAIDs in high dose to “help him”. This came with a long list of side effects, including liver damage, that I didn’t feel was in the best interest of my other wise healthy dog. Over the course of this year, visiting once a month, Frost’s over all heath has improved and more impressively his mobility has improved over the course of treatments. He can take short easy hikes again, he can get himself on the bed with a ramp and in the car with just a boost or sometimes on his own with a hop! Frost no longer falls on his rear when trying to potty and most recently even started to use his back foot to scratch while standing on his other three legs. At the start of this year I was pricing canine wheelchairs and getting ready to retire Frost from his work as a therapy dog. Now as this year draws to a close I am renewing Frost’s active membership in our therapy dog organization and looking forward to all the joy he can still get out of his life and bring to others. Thank you Dr. St. Germain for all you have done, and continue to do, for my special old boy”.

A wonderful testimonial from a great client!

This dog’s name is Clancy. He was brought in to me in July of 2016 and I diagnosed him with Atopic dermatitis. I began Holistic treatments that day using a combination of homeopathy and diet therapy. (See below)
By October of 2016, Clancy appears much better. He has lost nearly 20 pounds of bloat. He is much fitter and leaner now! (See below)
