An Alternative Approach
Following the completion of his doctor’s degree in Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University, Dr. Silver practiced conventional small animal medicine in Colorado where he found frustration at the number of patients that conventional medicine could not help. It was at that time that he began his studies in herbal and nutritional medicine to use side-by side with his conventional therapies. Patients that would not respond to conventional medicine, began to improve, and get better.
He has taught Chinese Herbal Therapies for the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS) and consulted for a variety of natural animal nutraceutical companies. Currently, Dr. Silver is chief medical officer of RxVitamins for Pets.
I had the pleasure of speaking with the personable Dr. Silver and he is professional, warm and most of all, I could tell he truly cares for pets and their people.
I am passionate about cancer because it has such a potentially devastating effect on a family, and I see myself as having learned many skills in treating cancer patients in my practice that I want to share that legacy with a wider audience through my website, and in so doing help more families that have been impacted by pet cancer to be better able to maintain their pet’s quality of life.”
