About Dr. Barr


Dr. Barr graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1991.  She became interested in holistic veterinary medicine as the result of a personal medical tragedy that occured with her brother in 1994.

Dr. Barr became devoted and determined to offer more options for her patients in order to provide a natural and more complete approach to health and healing.  She began pursuing further training and education in complementary healing modalities including Acupuncture, Chinese Herbology, Homeopathy, Canine Rehabilitation, Jaffe-Mellor Technique (JMT) and Chiropractic.

From a medical, diagnostic and treatment approach, Dr. Barr believes in combining the best of both worlds using conventional veterinary medicine and complementary techniques.
