Dr. Heike Jung
Dr. Jung combines her veterinary training with her 20+ years experience as an animal chiropractor and her passion for homeopathy to help you find a better normal for your four legged friend.
I graduated Mississippi State College of Veterinary Medicine in May of 1994. My first job was with a mixed animal practitioner in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. It was a great job but I was in search of the perfect job.
My next career choice brought me to a small animal practice in southeastern Michigan. This fast paced, family owned practice was a wonderful learning experience. It taught me not to rely on fancy machines but to listen to the clients, the animals and my instincts. I learned about practice management and client communication; about late night c-sections and early morning euthanasias; about open heart surgery and limb amputations; about chronic skin problems and emergency medicine. If it was unusual and complicated, we probably saw it.
But something was missing....I was seeking balance with nature. I was seeking healing from within. I wanted to cure the disease, not suppress its symptoms. I wanted to look at the whole animal, not just the symptoms associated with different body parts.
The Chiropractor & Homeopath
I became certified in animal chiropractic by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association in 1999. I studied Homeopathy under Dr. Glen Dupree and the British Institute of Homeopathy in 2008. I became passionate about horses again.
As my professional work with horses expanded, so did my personal growth with my own equine companions. In seeking more knowledge, better communication and a relationship with my horses, I started my journey in Natural Horsemanship as well as Equine Behavior and Problem solving in 2005. It has been a very successful journey to the point of becoming a Professional Instructor and an International Lecturer on Equine Behavior.
The Northern Virginia area has brought new opportunities. I now work closely with other holistic vets who want to re-establish balance and harmony to your pet's life using chiropractic and homeopathic modalities.
This book is a collection of my own horse stories and the lessons I learned...
For those of us who love horses, they have a somewhat magical quality about them, an unknown mystery. For those of us who have owned horses, they have been teachers, healers and partners.
This book is a collection of my own horse stories and the lessons I learned.
Stories that have helped me understand myself better. Stories that have made me see people in a different light. Stories that have made me think outside the box and re-create my own box.
These are stories and lessons about healing, growing, and changing. This book is a collection of horse inspired lessons about wealth, health and, most importantly, relationships.
