About Us

Dog&CatDr. Cathy Lund graduated from Iowa State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1988 and has practiced in small animal medicine in the twin cities south metro area since.

In recent years, she has taken an interest in holistic options for treating her dog and cat friends. Holistic medicine sees patients as a whole being, rather than a collection of body parts. Efforts are made to balance the changes which led to disease, rather than suppress the symptoms and cause another area to shift out of balance. The body is always trying to reach a state of better health, so “diseases” are its way of attempting to regain balance.

Many “modalities”, or types of treatments fall under the umbrella of holistic medicine. Most people are familiar with acupuncture, chiropractic care, massage, etc. But other modalities such as homeopathy, glandular supplements, Reiki, Qigong (pronounced “chi-gong”), essential oils, crystal healing and flower essences are becoming popular, as people look for healing options for both their pets and themselves. Each practitioner finds that certain treatments seem to best fit their personal style and belief system. Dr. Lund uses primarily homeopathy (homotoxicolgy), nutrition, glandulars and flower essences.

Working out of a full service pet hospital, she has access to diagnostic tools such as bloodwork and x-ray, when needed.

Cathy lives with her husband, kids and pets on acreage in Lakeville. She likes to garden, travel, ski, go for walks and hang out at home.
