Dr. Fox is a 1994 graduate of Iowa State University's College of Veterinary Medicine. After a life-threatening health scare in 2007, in which she chose to take a natural approach in lieu of chemotherapy and radiation to restore her health, Dr. Fox began researching alternative and holistic medicine for her animal patients. She discovered that many animals responded very favorably to a natural approach and that many chronic health conditions could be managed well with diet change, detoxification protocols, and caring for animals the way mother nature designed. Dr. Fox is a member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, the American Veterinary Association, and is on the board of the Veterinary Medical Aromatherapy Association. She is also a speaker on holistic medicine at the national, regional and local levels and has authored several publications in holistic veterinary journals as well as two of her own books. Dr. Fox lives on the family farm in northeast Iowa with her husband Gary. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time around the fire pit, rockhounding, playing with their multiple kitties and horses, and hiking.
