Practice owner, Beverly Cappel, DVM, CVA, a renowned authority in homeopathy, herbal medicine and acupuncture opened the Vet At The Barn in 1993—Rockland County's first holistic vet center. Unlike a conventional practice, holistic care looks at the entire animal and considers all the factors that contribute to his or her overall health and well-being—including the pet's environment, lifestyle, nutrition and emotional state.

“We look for the underlying cause of disease while treating your entire pet on an emotional, physical and spiritual level to obtain the deepest level of healing possible, with the least invasive, non-toxic and natural methods. Like people, every animal is a living, energetic being constantly adjusting to its surrounding environment and attempting to stay in a state of equilibrium or balance,” explains Dr. Cappel.
