The Homeopathic Veterinarian:
Dr. Shuli 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.
Shuli 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. Shuli 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. Shuli took a craniosacral course in 2008 and is also enjoying adding this gentle modality to acupuncture treatments. Shuli 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, Shuli enjoys being in the great outdoors with her daughter Esther and her dogs Abby and Finn, or cuddling with the cats, Tibby and Slush. She can also be found playing her accordion, doing contact improvisational dance, and knitting. Dr. Shuli’s volunteer work has included working with Side by Side Homeopathy – a group of homeopaths dedicated to treating addiction in the downtown east side, and teaching meditation at Alouette women’s prison.
Dr. Shuli recently relocated to the Slocan valley and is excited to be offering house call services and will soon be opening a home office to see patients for holistic veterinary treatments. Although primary a small animal vet, Dr. Shuli will use homeopathy in conjunction with your conventional vet diagnosis or treatment to support pretty much any animal, even 2 legged ones!
