Glass House Holistic Veterinary Services
Veterinarians - Beerwah, QLD
We like to spend time with our patients and and will always aim to make both owner and pet as comfortable as possible .
Glass House Holistic Veterinary Services is owned and run by myself, Dorothea Hofman, from my veterinary clinic in Beerwah, where I aim to offer sensible, logical and well rounded Holistic care for pets.
After graduating from the University of Queensland in 1985 with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science, it did not take me long to realize the limitations of “normal” veterinary treatments. This led me to start exploring the wide variety of alternative treatments. The journey started primarily with acupuncture and homoeopathy and has progressed since then to nutritional therapies, herbs, essential oils and physical modalities.
As such I now feel that I can generally select appropriate treatment regimes for most cases. Many treatments will also involve the removal of exposure to other toxic products, such as other drugs and vaccines, and as always, diet is incredibly important in providing nutrition for healing bodies.
Today we are blessed with easier access to information and differing perspectives. Using this knowledge, we can make better selections for ourselves and our pets, allowing people to live better lives and avoid the pitfalls of our modern world.
I live at Glass House Mountains with my rapidly growing teenage son, a small tribe of very spoilt dogs, two cats and a very friendly horse. By collecting our own water, we are able to avoid consuming nasty additives such as fluoride. We try to eat organic food where possible and grow some fruit and vegetables, which we happily hand out to neighbours and clients in times of excess.
