I have always loved animals and have known from a very young age I wanted to spend my life helping them. This passion never really left me. Growing up, my dearest confidant, Maya, was a gentle French Spaniel. Maya lived to be 16 years old and taught me the true meaning of having a 4-legged companion. Not just a friend, but a forever bond. I love animals, seeking their presence and enjoying their powerful effect.
After 5 years of hard work at the Montréal Veterinary Medicine University (Canada), my dream of practicing came true. Throughout my studies, I pursued international internships and practiced with domestic animals, exotic birds, and marine mammals. All of which were unique and wonderful experiences. Today, I practice with small animals (cats and dogs) and have developed a special interest in integrative medicine.
I completed a course in acupuncture at the Chi University of Florida a couple years ago. Since then, my view on animal health has shifted and I consider, like many other holistic practionners, the body as One whole, one ecosystem. Diet and lifestyle are at the center of this Health in my opinion.
I can also attest that the best outcome with patients typically comes from a merge of Western and Eastern medicine. Why not combine thousands of years of healing with recent science and research?
I offer acupuncture treatments <https://visitingvetcare.com/at-home-pet-acupuncture/> to furry companions with the intention to promote healing, calm painful conditions, address chronic issues, and create soothing effects. Acupuncture is a wonderful tool in my toolkit, as it enhances the body’s ability to heal itself, from musculoskeletal issues to chronic allergies or seizures and anxiety, to name a few conditions it can do wonders for.
Practicing at-home care for pets is a beautiful privilege and I love this new turn in my career. Holistic veterinary medicine keeps me learning every day to best serve my patients. I also love sharing and communicating with clients, while building trusting and lasting relationships.
Fun Fact about Dr. Jetté
When I am not helping patients, I am normally outdoors with my partner, Alex, my Border Collie, Fanny, and my Labradoodle, Agnes. Outdoors is where my spirit likes to be, whether it is here or traveling, training for a triathlon, or simply hiking, enjoying water sports, or gardening.
