Dr. Jim Carlson


Dr. Jim Carlson is a 1993 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He began his veterinary career doing mostly western, or conventional, style medicine. As with many veterinarians who practice alternative medicine styles, he became dissatisfied with the responses he would get from the allopathic approach. Slowly he began to integrate other types of treatments.

Several years ago, he added nutritional medicine by adding products like glandulars, and many products from a company called Standard Process. Next, he added some traditional homeopathy. After being introduced to homotoxicology in 2003, he began adding this to the repertoire. Then in 2004 he went to the Chi Institute to be trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture.

He has been a referral veterinarian for The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Medvet for acupuncture. By using an integrated approach of combining these alternative approaches with conventional medical treatments, he and his team at Lifetime Pet Wellness are able to provide some of the best medical plans possible for your pet.
