What Clients Are Saying About Dr. Posey...
My mom and I have been bringing our pit bull, Bobby, here. He got the diagnosis of cancer in his jaw a little over a month ago; was told by another vet that he had about a week, then he would stop eating, and that would be the end for him. Bobby was honestly looking like death walking. My mom was like no we have to save him and called here and they wanted to see Bobby immediately hearing he had cancer. Essentially he has a broken jaw because of the cancer eating away the bone in his jaw. Bobby has had 3 or 4 acupuncture trips so far. The acupuncture is just really cool to see done on a dog. You can see they know what they are doing. Bobby really enjoys it and feels so much better afterwards and for days after; it’s like he isn’t in pain anymore because of it. He likes the treats they give him too lol. He usually passes out on the car ride after he done because he is so relaxed. Bobby has been on Chinese herbs prescribed to him by this vet and we were also given a big list of foods hot, cold, and neutral and have been feeding him this special diet. In just a little over a month complete 180 degree turn in health. I knew these alternative medicinal treatments would work, but I didn’t expect to see results so fast. Bobby went from looking like he was on his deathbed back to his normal self. Bobby is on his way to beating this cancer thanks to the help from this place.
Dr. Posey has been available to care for the difficult issues our pets present -- cats and dogs. She and her team are informative and patient with challenging visits. I appreciate her gentler approach to care as diet and supplements are considered. Thank You, Dr. Posey!
Only place I've ever taken my little Yorkie Bruno and he is a very difficult patient. Even so, he is always treated with patience and kindness.
"Dr. Posey's Chinese medicine really works! My American Bully had a problem of regurgitating several times a day, sometimes undigested food when he had been fed hours previously,; every morning he'd drink copious amounts of water then throw up that with lots of foam ad mucus. He had food allergies so I fed a high quality limited ingredient kibble, but this did not stop his throwing up and he did not particularly like it. One vet diagnosed acid reflux and recommended Pepcid AC. Another thought it was extreme food allergies and wanted to put him on a very expensive hypoallergenic dog food that seemed to be mostly chemicals. Finally I took him to the L.S.U Veterinarian Teaching Hospital for a complete work up, feeling positive they could find out what was wrong and know how to treat it. They thought he had a hiatal hernia. But after several thousand dollars worth of tests ( thank goodness he has health insurance) - complete blood work ( which was normal) x-ray,, sonogram, and endoscope with biopsies - they still could not find a hernia nor determine what was wrong with him. They did find that his stomach took a long time to empty. They prescribed omeprazole and suggested a fluoroscope as they still thought he might have a hernia. I declined the fluoroscope so they said if the omeprazole didn't work to make another appointment and they would discuss medicinal maintenance. The Omeprazole worked only for a short time. I didn't want him to spend the rest of his life on drugs so in despair I turned to Google and found Dr. Posey on the internet. She did a very thorough exam, spending over an hour with him, and prescribed both a Chinese herbal formula and a home cooked Eastern food therapy diet (Remember Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine said, "In food excellent medicine can be found."). Well, it worked! He's thrown up maybe once in several months instead of several times every single day. I am so happy with the results and much prefer spending time cooking his food rather than cleaning up his throw up. Thank you Dr. Posey!"
"Dr. Posey and Kristi are absolutely fantastic. I had a crisis with my elderly cat and my regular vet was unavailable. They were able to see me and give my girl the treatment she needed. Their office is peaceful, calming, and Dr. Posey is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I plan to see them again. Highly recommended."
"I cannot properly express how pleased I am with the acupuncture treatment that my 16yr old Bichon, Sam, has received at Veterinary Holistic Healing. All of Sam’s symptoms- weak back legs, dementia, and cough have improved! Dr. Posey and her assistant, Kristi, always show Sam the utmost care! I highly recommend VHH for your fur babies’ healthcare needs!"
"We have a Yorkie who has been plagued by skin irritations for a long time. Our traditional veterinarian would only treat him with antibiotics and other harsh medications. We began taking our little guy to Dr. Posey and she has been treating him naturally with great results. Her appointments are never rushed and she always gives him a thorough examination. We highly recommend Dr. Posey and her natural approach to veterinary medicine!"
"My 6 year old poodle had a trigger point that caused her to limp. We had 1 dry needling session and came back the next week to find the trigger point completely gone."
"I wouldn't take my little cat anywhere else. Dr. Posey really cares about her furry patients. She diagnosed our kitty with Feline Leukemia and has helped us keep his immune system going strong. She recommended getting him fixed even though he is an inside cat. I was nervous about how he would handle the surgery and afterwards, but I decided to go ahead with it and my cat's energy and immune system are benefiting greatly. So glad I took Dr. Posey's advice. She treats animals holistically and practices with chinese herbs, acupuncture, as well as pharmaceuticals (like antibiotics) if necessary. She's also the most affordable natural vet in the area that I could find."

"We LOVE Dr. Posey! We were referred to her by our Ontologist! Seeing her was the best thing we have ever done for our dog Bobinski! She is very nice, compassionate, knowledgeable--all in all just a fantastic doctor/person! 5 stars is just not enough. She has brought our very sick dog back to life! Our dog LOVES Dr. Posey! Dr. Posey went out of her way to make sure I understood all of the information she gave me--she explained it in a way I would understand. She went out of her way to answer all of my questions. I can not say enough great things about her and her staff. Mrs. Lynn is also amazing! She calls and checks on Bobinski and makes sure that we have everything we need. I will be transferring all of my animals to Dr. Posey! Absolutely love her!!!"

"Dr Posey has helped my dog immensely. I originally came to Dr Posey for acupuncture and food therapy for my dog who just wasn’t feeling her best. She didn’t want to eat, she was low-energy, she scratched like crazy, and she had severe separation anxiety. We continue acupuncture monthly, the scratching has its ups and downs but overall is at a minimum, my dog loves her food and trying new foods, her energy is through the roof, and while we still work on anxiety, we’ve made quite a bit of progress. I can’t recommend Dr Posey’s holistic care enough!"

"In March of 2016, I began bringing Chi Chi to Dr. Posey. A few weeks before, Chi Chi began acting strangely. My regular vet suggested I have a test, which costs thousands of dollars. For about $5,000.00, I could find out what was wrong with my chihuahua but that did not include the cost of treatment. A friend suggested to me to go to Dr. Posey. She did a complete exam during our first visit and prescribed natural healing herbs. Chi Chi had a brain disorder which has been improving since taking holistic herbs. Now in November 2016, she is almost back to her normal self. I will always be grateful to Dr. Posey for all she has done for my sweet little girl."

"I have been interning here for about 5 months and I am absolutely in love with this occupation. I have witnessed how acupuncture and Chinese medicine has been very successful. Its crazy i had never even heard of this before I met Dr. Posey I thank her so much for this experience. This has been very influential."

"Dr. Posey is so caring towards my sweet Papillon. She is always very thorough with her examinations and very informative regarding her shots and the best diet plans. I highly recommend if you're interesting in having the resources available for your pet to live a long, healthy, and natural life!"

"Absolutely the best! She is so loving and truly cares about the well-being of your animals. She is well versed in natural healing, alternative options as well as complete safe traditional animal care. She helped me with my very sensitive cat and while I was on a visit there I heard other clients experiences (all positive and amazing) she goes to great lengths to give your animals the best care they can receive. She always is pushing for healing at the source rather than a "patch" of medication or expensive surgeries. Always doing what's best for your pet."

"We have been going to Dr. Posey for many years. If your pet is suffering from joint or hip pain, please take them to Dr. Posey, you will be amazed as to how well the acupuncture and the herbal medicines work. The first dog (Socks) who loved her walks, was having such lower back pain, she would stop and sit, and we would end up carrying her home. We started with the acupuncture, and almost immediately she was walking with no pain. We currently have another dog on herbal medicine for his hip & leg joints, and he is doing really well."

"Dr. Janice Posey is a very knowledgeable and caring vet. I brought my dog Copper to her for 13 years. She helped Copper with his painful back problems several times. Now I bring my dog Coco to her - he is a rescue dog and she's treating him for severe dry eye, which has improved. I highly recommend this clinic!"

"Dr. Posey did acupuncture on my precious JoJo (ShiTzu) for his back pain and it has done wonders. Also, the herbal remedies for JoJo has really helped with his itching and he has slowed down, on scratching and biting his paws, feet, legs, etc." "She also has helped my Fluffy (ShiTzu) with her food therapy, breathing, skin problems, etc. Dr. POSEY is the BEST in the PARISH OF ST. TAMMANY, plus her husband is also a Veterinarian."
