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. 

I was put on this earth to serve our animal companions. Through compassionate holistic guidance, I’ll help you create a life of joy, health and love for your beloved furry friends. I’m also here for you to help you find peace with your animal caretaking journey.
My practice philosophy is first and foremost to prevent disease and to find imbalances before symptoms manifest – basically, treat before the last straw breaks the camel’s back. I’m also dedicated to teaching and empowering you to understand how to keep your animals healthy, and how to effectively navigate through the maze of available information about animal healthcare.
I don’t beat around the bush! I go right to addressing the root causes of your animal’s health conditions through integration of all aspects of medicine -- and beyond. This is true holistic care. It encompasses the mind, body and spirit of your furry family member. I love all animals, including yours and connect deeply with them in order to tune in to their bodies. This allows me to access their unique intelligence to help guide their healing. You’ll experience magic. Healing your animals can be a very powerful experience. It will change you.
