Veterinary Technician Oath

“I solemnly dedicate myself to aiding animals and society by providing excellent care and services for animals, by alleviating animal suffering, and by promoting public health. I accept my obligations to practice my profession conscientiously and with sensitivity, adhering to the profession’s Code of Ethics, and furthering my knowledge and competence through a commitment to lifelong learning.”



What if:


You could gain valuable knowledge while receiving one-one-one support for all your pet related questions... Whenever and wherever you needed it?!


Imagine if you had a personalized blueprint for:

▪ Raising your new puppy

▪ Feeding a specific diet to help your pet's allergies and itching

▪ Promoting safety in your home to minimize the risk of bites towards your children

▪ Or even preparing to introduce your new baby to your pets



What if all your pet care needs were personalized to you, your family, and your pet?


What if your success, was another person's priority?


What if you could be the successful, confident and empowered pet owner you have always wanted to be?!


Does this all sound too good to be true?!


Well, that's exactly what is offered here!


You may be wondering:


"How is a Veterinary Technician qualified to help me and my pet(s) with all of this?"


I'm sure you have some specific needs that maybe aren't fully being met (yet).


It can feel scary and isolating at times.


Have you ever spent hours online searching for answers? Posting in Facebook groups looking for support, recommendations, and ideas to solve these problems?!


Do you have questions about nutrition, behavior, training, or even general pet care?


Most dog & cat owners do.


With more and more people turning to the internet these days in their search for information... It's more important than ever to be aware of the dangers this can bring.


Facebook groups in particular have some not-so-professional advice... Which can lead to further problems, and even disaster down the road!

You might initially have some objections to working with someone who's not a DVM.


That's okay, I totally get it.


Most people ask:

"Why would someone who 'isn't a veterinarian' be assisting people with concerns about their pet's health?"


Let me break it down... Because I'd love to show you how this is possible!


When my first dog got very sick, there were no answers. I was the person described above. Searching for solutions day and night. Buying every product under the sun that might give him even the slightest bit of relief or healing.


I wished I had some magic answer, someone to talk to with information tucked in their brain that I wasn't able to find online.


Distraught for answers.... I decided to attend an accredited school for Veterinary Technology to learn it all.

Or so I thought.


The answers weren't there either... But I gained something even better:

The ability to think critically and do loads of independent research after the notice of widespread indoctrination (and false narrative) that was thrown at me regarding pet nutrition, behavior and pharmaceutical products.


So I went on another search (years later with my own health) and eventually founded my own business to provide support to you, and other pet owners who are desperately in need of what I never had:


▪ Answers

▪ Support

▪ Individualized care

▪ Compassion

▪ Understanding


.....and even a bit of mindset coaching!


Regularly, I am furthering my education via webinars, courses, independent online research, books, scientific journals and more. Most recently, I even published an article in a magazine strictly geared towards veterinary professionals!


We as pet owners have been so conditioned to believe that no advice should be thrown towards us if it's not from a DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine). The level of fear-mongering, and propaganda in this industry is outstanding.


And I see it often.


Pet owners come to me feeling lost, ashamed, ridiculed, judged, helpless, and above all: guilty.


Guilty that they didn't:

▪ Know better

▪ Ask questions

▪ Try harder

▪ Research their options to be fully informed


Don't get me wrong, there are some AMAZING vets out there! And I've sent people there way when they were looking for a care provider who aligns with their views and could actually provide help to them! Unfortunately, the fear, shaming, andand guilt tripping has leaked over onto the holistic side as well. This is now and industry-wide issue!

I want you to ask yourself something:


When was the last time you felt fully supported in your quest to better your pet's health?!


When was the last time you felt heard and truly understood in your concerns?


There are many pet owners, like you, who have not been listened to or helped in a way they need/ want. Let alone what they or their pet deserves.


Until now.


Here are a few messages I've received recently from people who needed my guidance:

More Testimonials & Reviews

This is what it means to feel heard. Understood. And most of all: not alone in their journey.


Welcome to a judgement-free zone! I realize that everyone is at different points in their journey and are doing their best with what knowledge, tools and resources they have. I'm not here to pressure and coerce you into feeding any particular style food or care. I'm here to provide you reputable information so you can make an informed decision.


The level of individualized support provided with each inquiry, each random comment, each message, and with every consultation here at Happy Trails Pets: is unmatched.


Not only do you receive hours of one-on-one time with me, you also get email support, a typed plan with recommendations perfectly tailored to your pet's (and family's) need, and various educational handouts in a digital Drive Folder.


But that's not all.


You also get:

▪ Compassionate care

▪ 10+ years of knowledge, study and research

▪ A unique perspective

▪ Valuable resources

▪ Guaranteed support. If I don't have the answers, I'll find someone who does and send you their way!


You see, it's not enough to just go to school and recite what you learned in a textbook.


It's a matter of fact that we NEVER stop learning. And I'm always in the market for the latest and greatest info regarding pet health and new innovations to the better the lives of families who are struggling with their dog or cat.


When professionals can set aside their ego and realize there is something much deeper than what they learned during their initial training.... Doors open up. Possibilities are created. And lives are changed.


I'm not here to replace any other pet professional out there. I'm here to provide answers and support to those who want it, who aren't getting it elsewhere with the team they have chosen. And if need be, I will happily collaborate other professionals to be sure well-rounded care and the best results possible are being achieved.


This is the mission of Happy Trails Pets.
