Dr. Becker’s Comments:
Hopefully in the next few weeks we will formally launch MercolaHealthyPets.com! But we simply couldn't contain ourselves any longer and wanted to introduce you to Dr. Karen Becker. She is an absolute delight and fountain of information that will help improve the health of your pet.
We understand the important role your pets play in your life. There’s no loyalty or love quite as pure as that which we receive from our companion animals. And their devotion in return knows no bounds.

At MercolaHealthyPets.com you’ll find all the tools and resources you need to make sure your pets live a long and healthy life.
A New Approach to Your Pet’s Healthcare
I’m a proactive, integrative wellness veterinarian.
Proactive medicine is the practice of medicine as nature intended. It involves identifying and removing lifestyle and health obstacles before disease occurs.
Unfortunately, the majority of veterinarians in the United States are trained to be reactive. Their approach is to:
- wait for disease symptoms to occur, and then
- treat those symptoms with medications that more often than not do nothing to address the underlying medical condition.
Your Pet is Unlike Any Other
Integrative veterinary medicine recognizes healing as a process that is different for each animal. There’s no such thing as effective “cookie cutter” medicine.
The beauty of the integrative approach is it embraces the art of medicine. It recognizes your pet’s body as unique, and the goal of the practitioner or veterinarian is to identify what form of healing best resonates with your pet.
The Goal: Create Wellness to Prevent Illness
Believe it or not, the concept of wellness in veterinary medicine is quite new.
It’s important to keep the following in mind:
Wellness is not just the lack of symptoms or lack of disease.
Wellness is making key, consistent, lifestyle choices that improve the quality of your pet’s well-being.
I hope you’ll think of me as your proactive, integrative wellness veterinarian on the internet.
I look forward to partnering with you to create abundant health for all the animals in your life.
To your pet’s good health,
Dr. Karen Becker
