Disclaimer: The case histories that I write about are chapters from my upcoming book, and are based on actual animals that I have treated. The names of some clients and patients have been changed to maintain their privacy. The facts are written as accurately as possible, based on my medical notes and phone and/or in-person interviews. Some minor details of setting or other non-medical facts may differ slightly due to lapse of memory after so many years. I apologize in advance for any such errors.

Holistic medicine is different from conventional medicine in that it is more time intensive. A "typical" initial consult is usually about 30 minutes, although occasionally it may be as long as 60 minutes or as short as 15 minutes, depending upon your knowledge of holistic care and the complexity of the case. The charge is based upon time actually spent. During this initial consult, you will learn a great deal about how to keep your animal healthy, i.e. preventative care, proper nutrition, exactly what vaccines are truly necessary for your pet, as well as discuss safe flea and tick prevention and many other basic concerns.

Oftentimes, our pet's disease is wholly or partly due to severe nutritional deficiencies. We have learned that what we eat is central to our health and well-being, and so it is for animals. I was very much taken by a lecture given by a colleague of mine on some differences she found between wild animals and our domesticated friends. She was married to a wildlife veterinarian, and when she went on calls with him into the wilderness to seek out injured or dead animals, she said she was struck by the fact that not one of these animals was afflicted with any of the degenerative diseases that we so commonly find in our companion animals - no skin disease, no ear infections, no dental or gum disease or chronic arthritis or paralytic or wasting diseases.

Is it really so terrible to buy a collie? These words were tormenting me, going round and round my head, after my beloved Shadow had been killed by a car at only one and a half years old. My mind flashed back to the day I rescued Shadow from the local dog pound. Carol, the veterinarian I worked for and myself, were part of a dog adoption organization and had dashed over to the municipal shelter to choose two dogs. There were a couple of extra cages in our hospital, so we were able to choose one dog each from this squalid facility and hopefully find them wonderful loving homes.

Krishna's Flute: The Spiritual Journey of a Holistic Veterinarian is a new book by Dr. Marcie Fallek. Being published one chapter at a time, the book will be completed some time next year. Below you will find a few chapters from the book which have already been released. Hope you enjoy reading these inspiring tales and let us know what you think. We'd love to hear from you. Anxiously, I exited the crowded market in the small town of Puttaparthi India, where they had recently added a minuscule refrigerated section to the only 'supermarket' in this remote village.
