Having worked several years as a fully licensed Veterinarian in the Los Angeles area, Dr. Douglas Kramer built up a loyal following of clientele by practicing high quality medicine and never compromising on patient care. He encouraged owners to become actively involved in the decision making process by offering a range of possible treatment options based on the pets’ and owners’ individual circumstances. In order to facilitate active participation, and to help educate his clients about pet health care issues, Dr. Kramer produced and distributed informational “handouts” for owners to take home and use as reference guides. The Vet Guru Website was born out of desire to more easily distribute that same information to his clientele in a digital format. Over time, Dr. Kramer became acutely aware of his clients’ strong desire to explore “alternative” treatment options for their pets. Increasingly, he received inquiries about all-natural, herbal (botanical) treatments and medications. Frustrated by a lack of online resources exploring these specialized fields of veterinary medicine, Dr. Kramer began to post information on the Vet Guru website. His Clients now have an online source of information exploring natural herbal therapeutics for their pets. In addition, the Vet Guru website offers general information relating to pet health care; much like the paper handouts of old.
Rather than relying solely on pharmaceutical medications alone, Dr. Kramer believes strongly in a more holistic and comprehensive approach. The combination of both modern medications and traditional therapeutics produces the best clinical results. We must remain open-minded to all forms of healing, young and old alike, for the welfare of our beloved companions. Following this line of thought, Dr Kramer has recently developed a Vet Guru pet product line based on herbal and holistic formulations. The focus of the company now also includes incorporating natural therapeutics into novel delivery systems that make administration to pets more effective and convenient.
Dr. Kramer is absolutely, without a doubt, the most caring and patient vet we have dealt with. He listens, cares, and really wants to resolve any issue you might have. –Kari and Jeff Stokes from Simi Valley, CA
