Dr. Jim Carlson is a 1993 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He began his veterinary career doing mostly western or conventional medicine. As with many veterinarians, Dr. Carlson became dissatisfied with the responses he would get from the allopathic approach. Slowly Dr. Carlson began integrating other treatments, such as nutritional medicine, using products like glandular and whole-body supplements from Standard Process. He began practicing traditional homeopathy and, in 2003, added homotoxicology to his repertoire. In 2004 Dr. Carlson attended the Chi Institute to be trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture and has been certified since 2005. In 2006 and 2007, Dr. Carlson became certified by The Healing Oasis Wellness Center and the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association in Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy. Dr. Carlson is a referral veterinarian for The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Medvet for acupuncture. By combining these alternative approaches with conventional medical treatments, he and his team at Lifetime Pet Wellness can provide some of the best medical plans possible for your pet. Dr. Carlson was featured in Hobby Farm Magazine, This Week community papers, and the Columbus Dispatch.
