It seems like there’s an endless stream of dogs that come into our stores with skin irritation that causes them to chew, nibble and scratch at themselves relentlessly. Oftentimes, they’ve already gotten a diagnosis that their dog has allergies, but many of the treatment options they’ve been given aren’t working as they should be.

In many of these cases, we discover that although the dog may have allergy-like symptoms, they may actually have a yeast problem that’s not being addressed. Once we tackle yeast head on through diet and supplements, many dogs experience fantastic results.

Today’s guest is Julie Anne Lee DCH RCSHom. Julie Anne has been the owner and practitioner of some of the busiest and long-standing holistic veterinary hospitals and clinics in North America.

Graduating from the Vancouver Academy of Homeopathy’s 4 year Homeopathic Medicine Program, she has studied with some of the world’s leading veterinary homeopaths.

She is an Associate Member of the British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons and has co-founded and taught a three-year post-graduate program to veterinarians in Canada with Dr Sue Armstrong to help bridge the gap between human and animal homeopathic medicine.

Julie Anne is now the founder and co-owner of the Adored Beast Apothecary, where she formulates holistic pet care products.
