Dr. Doolittle's Bio
Dr. Sharon Doolittle graduated from Michigan State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1982. She was originally an equine practitioner based in Rhode Island. Now, Dr. Doolittle concentrates exclusively on holistic animal healthcare, including Nutrition Response Testing, Applied Kinesiology, Chiropractic, Clinical Nutrition, and other alternative therapies for dogs, cats, and horses. Dr. Doolittle has received extensive training in holistic healthcare through post-graduate courses and seminars since 1999. She is currently the only veterinarian in the country to have received her certification for Advanced Clinical Training in Nutrition Response Testing. Dr. Doolittle has also lectured extensively on holistic animal healthcare both to animal owners, and to other veterinarians, and has taught at the advanced animal chiropractic seminars at Options for Animals. Dr. Doolittle writes a bi-monthly column for Aspire magazine, and has also written articles for Dog Fancy, Animal Wellness and Spirit of Change. She has been a guest on WPRO-AM and WBLQ FM radio in RI, and has taped a television show on holistic animal healthcare for the program “What’s the Alternative?” to be aired on the Dish Network.
Dr. Doolittle’s practice focuses on total animal wellness, utilizing the Nutrition Response Testing approach to diagnose and treat problems. She focuses on creating wellness and nutritional programs tailored to each individual animal, as well as designing programs for animals with medical issues, allergies, and cancer. She also performs chiropractic work on dogs, cats, and horses to treat lameness and medical problems, as well as maintenance chiropractic work on performance dogs and horses. Dr. Doolittle utilizes a wide range of alternative modalities in her practice, and the appropriate ones are used based upon individualized needs of her animal patients.
I envision someday to be able to teach other veterinarians, both regionally and perhaps nationally, seminars in Autonomic Response Testing so that more animals may benefit from this wonderful diagnostic tool.
My ongoing goal now and in the future is to continue to try and change the way healthcare is viewed in this country. I would like to help in shifting the focus from disease & symptom medicine that is currently practiced by conventional medicine, to wellness and preventitive medicine so that proper health is achieved & maintained for life.
I intend to continue giving seminars similar to the one I gave in Febuary 2005, to help continue educating animal owners about the various options and different ways to look at, animal healthcare.
