Dr. Barb Fox, holistic veterinarian, has been in veterinary practice for the past 28 years.
Her journey into holistic medicine came about after Dr. Fox was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer in 2007, for which she chose natural treatments and therapies in lieu of chemotherapy and radiation. Thrilled with the results in her health, Dr. Fox expanded her education into holistic veterinary medicine, attending as many workshops, conferences, and symposiums as she possibly could.
Today, Dr. Fox helps animal caretakers and pet parents across the country by consulting with them through telemedicine. Many pet parents seek natural therapies and products for their animals, but cannot find a local veterinarian who practices holistic medicine. Dr. Fox can work with people even from long distances to formulate a plan tailored directly to an animal's unique needs.
Dr. Fox has spoken at national conferences, including Young Living Essential Oils International Grand Convention, Young Living Animal & Essential Oils Conferences, the student chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association's national symposium, and numerous regional and local conferences. She also is a contributing author to several holistic veterinary journals and reference guides.
She is a member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Iowa Veterinary Medical Association, and the Veterinary Medical Aromatherapy Association.
In her spare time, Dr. Fox enjoys rock hunting, hiking, and spending time in the mountains of Colorado. She and her husband Gary live on the family farm in northeast Iowa with their two horses and variety of kitties.
