Integrative Medicine: One Veterinarian’s Destiny | Dr. Mitsie Vargas

Dr. Vargas shares her fascinating backstory and how she integrates both traditional cancer treatments and alternative therapies to help her patients.


Finding something that works is the first priority of every dog lover who has a dog with cancer. Dr. Mitsie Vargas knows exactly how you feel, both as a pet owner herself and a veterinarian, parent, and daughter. Her experiences with her own pets and family members – as well as a chance event in vet school – have led her to incorporate natural and alternative therapies alongside the more classical cancer treatments from Western medicine.

Listen to her story and some of the therapies that she has had success treating her canine cancer patients, ranging from Chinese herbs to acupuncture and beyond.
