Treating Dog Cancer Naturally – Why I made the Switch to Becoming a Holistic Veterinarian | Dr. Katie Woodley Deep Dive

Dr. Katie Woodley has one goal besides treating the patient: reminding their pet parents that there is hope in alternative therapies.


Dr. Katie Woodley’s career began as a traditional veterinarian. That eventually changed after her husband was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder. Soon after, her beloved German Shepard, Finn, had a seizure, which later turned out to be a malignant brain tumor.

When comparing the side effects of both allopathic and natural medicine on her husband and Finn, she realized that all pet owners should be aware of their holistic options. This led her to become certified in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine (CHM). Through The Natural Pet Doctor, Katie provides integrative options for pet parents and strives to bridge the gap between holistic and traditional veterinarians in Colorado and beyond.

In this episode, Dr. Woodley will delve deeper into her path towards integrative medicine, provide tips for pet owners who are seeking holistic treatment and shares important advice about expectations vs. reality when your dog is put on a holistic treatment plan for cancer.
