Dr. Noel Crymble
BVSc, BSc, BA, LLB
I come from New Zealand where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science, and a Bachelor of Veterinary Science from Massey University's school of veterinary medicine in 2013.
A former legal officer in the Royal New Zealand Air Force, I decided to change careers from lawyer to veterinarian to satisfy my love of animals and to make an impact on their health and welfare. It was during my time as a veterinary student, that I saw the limitations of conventional medicine, and so developed an interest in holistic veterinary care.
My specialty is veterinary homeopathy, and I have completed the year-long Professional Course in Veterinary Homeopathy (the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy's qualifying course in the United States), and the Advanced Course in Veterinary Homeopathy, taught by Dr. Richard Pitcairn, DVM. I strongly believe that homeopathy, combined with nutritional support, can restore animals to health and vitality in acute and chronic cases.
HEALING THE WHOLE ANIMAL
Homeopathy is a holistic medical healing modality that works with the body to relieve symptoms, restore vitality, and improve overall health. Using tiny amounts of natural substances like plants and minerals, homeopathic remedies aim to stimulate the healing process.Learn More About Homeopathy
For homeopathic remedies to be effective, the pet must be nutritionally supported. Using dietary protocols and nutritional supplements, we can manage the complex needs of individual animals, in order to prevent and treat diseases.Learn More About Nutrition
Ayurveda is a medicine system with historical roots in the Indian subcontinent, where around 80% of the population use it. Ayurveda is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. The main goal of Ayurvedic supplements for pets is to promote good health, and treatments are geared toward specific health problems.Learn More About Ayurveda

Complimentary Introductory Phone Consultation
I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to help you better understand my approach to natural veterinary treatment, and to see if it is a fit for you and your pet. This is a chance for you to discuss some of the key health concerns and goals concerning your pet. No veterinary medical advice or recommendations will be given during this session.
There is no obligation for you to book an appointment following the free consultation. However, for me to advise you on the appropriate homeopathic and nutritional treatment to address your pet's health issues, you will need to make an appointment with me for an initial consultation in your home.
Initial Consultation — $320
This is an in-person consultation for me to get to know your pet and the health issues needing to be addressed. The fee includes a review of previous medical records, a physical examination, as well as a case analysis after the consultation to decide on the appropriate homeopathic remedy selection, and to determine beneficial nutritional supplements as well as dietary changes. My house call visit takes 1 hour.
Phone Follow-Up — $80
Follow-up sessions by phone are set for 30 minutes. Any additional time is billed incrementally at an hourly rate of $160. I will check the progress your pet is making, and may provide a change of recommendation either to remedy, supplements, or diet. Phone follow-ups are recommended every 4 to 6 weeks.
House Call Follow Up — $160
This fee covers a 1/2 hour in-person follow up visit at your home. House calls allow me to better reassess your pet so that I can make well-informed recommendations.
