I had the honor of interviewing Dr. Glenn Dupree, Tuesday for my column "Holistic Horse Heroes" coming up in the July issue of "Natural Horse Magazine." Dr. Dupree is one of the country's foremost authorities on Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine. I was so moved by his thoughts, insights and ideas about true health and healthy living that I couldn't wait for the magazine story to come out, so I figured I'd do a Feature Friday about him.
"I'm committed to teaching the Homeopathic way of living, healing and empowering our animals, and ourselves," Dr. Dupree said. The mission statement for his practice, "For The Animals" is, "We are dedicated to the art and science of classical homeopathy and its application in veterinary medicine."
As a boy growing up on a small family farm in Louisiana, Dr. Dupree learned early the harmony in life necessary for healthy living, for animals and humans. He graduated from Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1982 and opened his own practice in 1983. As the years went by and he kept seeing the same animals and treating them for the same problems, and worse problems as they aged, he yearned for a better way to help them.
Being a true healer Dr. Dupree began to search for alternative ways to promote good health. His search led him to Dr. Richard Pitcairn and his Professional Course in Veterinary Homeopathy. 1995 and '96 are what Dr. Dupree calls his "Jekyll and Hyde" years when he practiced conventional veterinary medicine in the daytime and studied under Dr. Pitcairn at night. Dr. Dupree was certified by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy in 1996. He continued to seek education in the holistic and homeopathic way, even moved for to PA 3 years to work with a totally homeopathic practice. When he moved back to his own practice in Louisiana he gradually made the transition toward a totally holistic approach to animal care.
In 2004, Dr. Dupree completely discarded the conventional veterinary philosophy, and his practice "For The Animals" became totally homeopathic and holistic. His practice began to branch out and through lectures, seminars and writings for many notable publications. Dr. Dupree introduced thousands of people and animals to the homeopathic ways.
His book "Homeopathy In Organic Livestock" is a how-to for those seeking a healthier way.
Visit his website http://www.homeopathyfortheanimals.com/ to change your life ...You'll find pages of information ready to print and you can make you're own handbook on homeopathic and holistic living and caring for your pets and horses. Dr. Dupree would love for you to always have that information.
I just got word that Dr. Dupree is having some health issues. If after looking at his website you want more information or to talk with someone about homeopathy for your animals please contact Lisa Ross-Williams, publisher of Natural Horse Magazine. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Dupree has been a true champion of bringing homeopathy to so many, and that's a wonderful thing.
