We are thrilled to announce that Dr Barbara Royal (DVM, CVA) has partnered with Furchild as our Director of Nutrition and Integrated Medicine!
Dr Royal is a holistic veterinarian, an esteemed author, and a celebrity herself having been featured in many documentaries, talk shows, news programs, media platforms, and in print for magazines and books. She is also well-recognised for being one of the stars of a fresh pet food documentary, Pet Fooled, that generated worldwide buzz.
She is the veterinarian for thousands of devoted pet parents, the go-to integrative vet for Oprah for over 10 years and other celebrities like Billy Corgan and many more.
Along with her charismatic personality that binds her audience, she brings a wealth of experience, skills, and genuine love for pets which makes her veterinary approach unique and holistic.
In a world full of opinions on the subject of raw dog food and raw cat food, Dr Royal brings with her unparalleled professional raw pet food formulation experience, research, and proven results.
She has studied many integrative and holistic modalities of health and medicine, including Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), advanced herbal medicine, physical rehabilitation, and homoeopathy, and puts these holistic approaches to best practical use.
What sets her at the forefront is her ability to bridge Western and Eastern medicine, and implement optimal solutions for her clients, which include pet parents in her local community, as well as high-profile celebrity pet owners.
With her multi-faceted knowledge and her individually-tailored practice, Dr Royal has provided comprehensive care and emergency medicine for the zoo, marine, wildlife animals, and companion pets.
She is also an acupuncture expert for exotic zoo creatures and pets. Notably, she is also the first veterinarian in the world to perform acupuncture on a zebra and reinforce herself as a pioneer in the pet industry.
Dr Royal’s resume and reputation are long and impressive.
She is the founder and owner of The Royal Treatment Veterinary Center in Chicago. In addition, Dr Barbara Royal is also the CEO of Animal Diet Formulator (ADF) and the College of Integrated Veterinary Therapies (CIVT).
With her holistic experience and vast in-depth research, Dr Royal now teaches about all aspects of practising integrative veterinary medicine through CIVT and is an adjunct professor at California Polytechnic State University.
Additionally, her engaging first book, The Royal Treatment: A Natural Approach to Wildly Healthy Pets, has been used as a textbook for integrative vet courses.
Significantly, Dr Royal has also been the president of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (AHVMA), the AHVM Foundation, a co-founder of the Royal Animal Health University (RAHU), and a board member of Paws Chicago and the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society (RFVS).
As a result of her expert holistic veterinarian knowledge and her unique approach, she is widely published, invited for lectures around the globe, and has regularly been featured in media and film documentaries for her groundbreaking work.
