The Homeopathic Veterinarian:
Dr. Shulamit Krakauer graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1997. She developed an interest in alternative medicine during that time and a particular interest in homeopathy. After practicing conventional medicine, including a large and small animal rural practice and a busy emergency clinic, she decided to pursue this passion.
Shulamit completed the International Veterinary Acupuncture course and certification program in 1999 and the Animal Natural Health Center Homeopathy program with Dr. David Evans and Dr. Richard Pitcairn in 2001. She completed the Vancouver Academy of Homeopathy 4 year program in 2004.
Dr. Shulamit continues her studies by participating in advanced seminars with internationally renowned homeopaths in order to expand her knowledge of homeopathic remedies and their use in people and animals. Dr. Krakauer took a craniosacral course in 2008 and is also enjoying adding this gentle modality to acupuncture treatments. Shulamit is fortunate to have worked with various holistic and conventional veterinarians both in Vancouver and on Vancouver Island, which has given her a wide range of clinical experience and exposure to various treatment options.
Outside of work and study, Shulamit enjoys being in the great outdoors with her daughter Aliyah and her dog Abby, or cuddling with shira aka Greyboots the Cat, who turns 20 years old this year! She can also be found playing her accordion, doing contact improvisational dance or drinking chai latte and eating a date square. Dr. Krakauer’s volunteer work has included working with Side by Side Homeopathy – a group of homeopaths dedicated to treating addiction in the downtown east side, teaching meditation at Alouette women’s prison, and being a “big sister” to a wonderful 12 year old girl.
