Full title: Managing Stress in the Pet Professional, Pet Parent and Pet while Treating Cancer

KarmaSue is partnering with The Brodie Fund and The Natural Pet Doctor to bring you this informative and timely workshop regarding stress.

From our facilitator:
Dr. Katie Woodley, BVSc, GDVCHM, cVMA, is the proud owner and expert holistic veterinarian of The Natural Pet Doctor. The Natural Pet Doctor is transforming the pet healthcare system through Dr. Woodley’s expertise, innovation and care. By integrating holistic medicine, such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutrition, into conventional treatment plans, we are improving the efficacy of treatments and enabling pets to live a longer and more vibrant life, regardless of the pets’ location.

We offer house consultations and telemedicine options to pet parents where holistic veterinarians may not be available and partner with conventional veterinarians to improve treatment outcomes and enhance well-being. We also offer innovative online content and memberships to empower pet parents with the tools and support they need to help their cherished pet stay healthy, while breaking the mold of traditional veterinary care. The current medical system is broken, but the tools we need to fix it are available so our beloved pets can be a happy and healthy family member for years to come.

KarmaSue will still host a counseling workshop in June.

We know how important it is to provide a safe space to feel your feelings regarding companion animal cancer and the human-animal connection. KarmaSue is here for you – no matter what. 🙂

We thought it would be a fun idea to host a KarmaSue Community open-mic happy hour…virtually!  Want to play a song, do a comedy routine, try something goofy for 3-5 minutes? Now is the perfect time to go for it!

Grab your favorite drink and/or snack and/or companion animal and let’s have some fun! This is the KarmaSue Crew’s way of providing some respite time for you and keeping our wits about us. 🙂

Lots of love to you!
