Wendy Thacher Jensen
Dr. Wendy Jensen knew as a child that she wanted to be an animal doctor. After growing up in three different countries, she went to college and graduated from the New York State College of Veterinary Medicine in 1987. She worked in a small animal practice, also seeing horses, sheep, and goats. Dr. Jensen enjoyed her work, but her patients kept coming back to her with relapsing complaints that the best medicine would only temporarily palliate. Dissatisfied, in 1990 she left practice and spent four years in the animal protection field. During this time, she attended a lecture on veterinary homeopathy and was captivated by this medicine's logical, straightforward and yet profoundly satisfying philosophy. She went in search of training, completing Dr. Richard Pitcairn's Professional Course in Veterinary Homeopathy before being certified by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy (AVH) in 1994. At that time, she opened the Jensen Homeopathic Veterinary Practice. She edited the AVH's journal for its first 12 years in publication, and then in 2011, her New World Veterinary Repertory, co-authored with Dr. Pitcairn, came out as software, followed by the published textbook in 2013. She currently writes, lectures, plays violin, and continues to practice homeopathy from her home in New Hampshire.
