Dr. Richard Pitcairn has been active in the veterinary field since graduating from UC Davis in 1965. His experience has spanned large animal medicine, small animal medicine, exotic animal medicine, research in immunology, and a faculty position at Washington State Veterinary School. As experience was gained the focus in practice became nutrition and use of homeopathy as primary modalities. In 1985, a practice was established in Eugene, Oregon that used only these two treatment methods for a wide range of physical and emotional problems. The success in this approach was recognized leading to the establishment of a year-long training program for veterinarians wishing to learn this work. To date, 500 veterinarians have gone through this training. In 1995, Dr. Pitcairn co-founded The Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy, the first professional organization of practicing veterinary homeopaths in the United States. In 2013 Dr. Pitcairn, in association with Wendy Jensen DVM, developed a repertory, the major reference work in homeopathic practice, and the first of its kind focusing specifically on veterinary practice. Now retired from active practice, Dr. Pitcairn consults with homeopathic veterinarians and continues to be active in teaching and writing in the area of nutrition, homeopathic medicine and the ethical treatment of animals. With his wife Susan Pitcairn, he is the author of: Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats, now in 4th edition.
