Meet Dr. Odette Suter
First and foremost the commitment I take on for all animals is to help them to restore their imbalances and prevent disease — before symptoms appear.
I don’t think of myself just as your pet’s vet. I think of myself as your partner and teacher in the learning process of understanding your furry friend’s health needs and in discovering how to best care for them.
I have over 25 years of holistic veterinary care experience.
In my office, as well as in my tele-health visits, I take time to get to know you and your pet. Our initial visit will rarely be less than an hour long and in addition to a physical exam, I’ll be asking you all kinds of nuanced questions about your pet’s daily life and life in your home.
You’ll leave our appointments with a greater understanding of your pet’s health, how you can support them, and clarity about what’s next in their healing journey.
More About Me
With a twinkle in my eyes, I always tell people that I was born “weird” and continue to grow “weirder” .
I’m a holistic veterinarian, international best-selling author and lecturer, currently residing in the Chicago area. I received my degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Berne, Switzerland and a master’s degree in Psychology from the University of Santa Monica. I also studied Traditional Chinese Medicine at Emperor’s College in Santa Barbara and became certified in Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy (Chiropractic Care) at The Healing Oasis in Wisconsin.
Even before I finished vet school, I wanted to move beyond the limitations of conventional medicine which addresses symptoms but often falls short at “true healing”. Thus began my studies into holistic and functional medicine where I learned Chinese Medicine, Veterinary Spinal Manipulation, Chiropractic Neurology, hormone balancing, Applied Kinesiology, NAET (allergy elimination), Animal Communication, Microbiome restorative therapy, nutrition, Acupuncture, and more.
