Dr. Martha Lindsay to Speak at Souhegan Kennel Club

On Wednesday, August 18th,  the Souhegan Kennel Club’s guest speaker will be Dr. Martha Lindsay, DVM, MS, CVH, a Certified Veterinary Homeopath and owner of Alternative Veterinary Services of North Andover, MA. AVS uses treatments such as homeopathy, acupuncture, and Chinese herbs.  Dr Lindsay will speak primarily on the uses of Homeopathy in modern veterinary practice, as well as a overview of holistic medicine techniques.

From her practice’s website:

Evaluating a sick animal includes noting physical symptoms from a complete physical examination, mental and emotional symptoms, exercise habits, environmental influences (including toxins as well as stressful situations) and diet. All previous medical records are reviewed and sometimes additional tests are recommended as well before therapeutic recommendations are made.

Conventional (or allopathic) Western medicine treats isolated symptoms in an ill animal but does not address the underlying susceptibility of that patient to develop disease. The goal of homeopathy is to treat the patient’s symptoms but also to develop the strength of good health to resist disease in the future.
