Yes, I Make House Calls!

11-27-17  Yes, I Make House Calls!

This week, Dr. Morgan will be joined by a friend and holistic colleague who followed her passion to focus on end of life and hospice care – Dr. Monica Turenne, DVM, CVA, CT, CHPV, from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dr. Turenne successfully worked in traditional veterinary practice for 13 years before venturing out on her own in 2012.  She provides holistic and integrative services to dogs and cats in all stages of their lives including and specializing in help for those pets at the end of their lives with hospice care and euthanasia services.  Often a last resort referral, Dr. Turenne is beloved and respected by her clients, who describe her as “very passionate and caring”.  When it’s in the best interest of her patients, she goes above and beyond by providing these services in-home!  While her practice continues to offer integrative veterinary treatment, Dr. Turenne’s desire to provide compassionate end of life care led her to seek and achieve certification in Thanatology, the scientific study of death and the practices associated with it, in 2014.  Most recently, she also became a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Veterinarian so she could more effectively address the relief of pain, symptoms and stress caused by serious illnesses. While Dr. Turenne has helped many clients avoid costly surgeries using acupuncture, food therapies and herbs, turning that last resort into a lifetime of canine happiness, her true passion is end of life care and in the end, a gentle journey to the Rainbow Bridge.  This is an episode you won’t want to miss!

This Velvet is for You!

11-13-17  This Velvet is for You!

This is going to be an unforgettable show as Dr. Morgan welcomes this week’s guest, Barry Cuttance, all the way from Down Under in Oxford, New Zealand.  You’ve all heard Dr. Morgan speak of Deer Antler Velvet, the wonderful natural holistic supplement, traditionally regarded as a powerful rejuvenating tonic with extraordinarily wide-ranging properties.  For those of you using her deer antler velvet products, you have Barry to thank for reaching out to her to bring this wonderful product for our pets to the US.   You see, Barry is a deer farmer who developed his own velvet capsules for humans when his son, a former rugby-player, seriously injured his ankle.  In addition to restored ankle functionality 4 months sooner than predicted, his son also fully recovered from his psoriasis, which he’d endured since childhood.  This led Barry to become a believer and he gave up a career on the sea to begin marketing deer antler velvet.  Before this, his Oxford farm had been a sideline business to which he was now dedicated full time.  Barry was ready enter the US market and he reached out to Dr. Morgan to partner with him to do so – a partnership for which we are forever grateful!  This is a show you won’t want to miss, so be sure to tune in as Dr. Morgan and Barry discuss both current and future “velvet” offerings and how they can benefit our pets and ourselves.
