Why Us

Our Philosophy

We view health as a positive state, not just the absence of disease.
We view disease as an opportunity for transformation

Our Approach

Take time to listen to your story and plan to the individual pet needs.

We Use

The ancient wisdom of herbal medicine, with the new-age science of homeopathics in Practitioner-Only formulations; combined with sound nutrition.

We Are

NZ’s most experienced natural animal health practitioners

Professional, yet incorporating mindfulness into our Practice.

Dedicated to the well being of our animal companions.

Meet the Team
Sarndra G Urwin
Dip NAH (Hons),  Dip Cl.Hyp.  HbT

Sarndra spent her childhood on an isolated sheep and cattle station, developing a deep physical and spiritual interest in the land, plants and animals.  At that time some of the old wise ways were still part of farming and she was to remember them well. Many years overseas were spent exploring the origins of indigenous practices that reflected the relationship between man, animal and the planet; there was obviously more to health and healing than the drugs of current orthodox medicine.

On returning to NZ, Sarndra followed her interest in dogs, successfully competing in Dog Breed and Obedience Shows, obtaining NZ’s first CDX Champion Rottweiler bitch; she was also the first competitor to show Rottweiler puppies with their tails on. 

Sarndra became a pioneer in holistic animal practices, using her training in nursing, vet nursing, NLP, homeopathy, herbal medicine, flower essences, massage and an adult education qualification to develop programs for animal natural health.

Sarndra has been in practice for over 50 years, founding the New Zealand Holistic Animal Therapists Association and developing a Diploma course in Natural Animal Health. She is a well-known writer on natural animal health issues, publishing the ‘Desktop Guide to Flower Essences for Animals’,  and is a popular feature on Magic National Radio Talkback Sunday Cafe

She is passionate about treating our earth with respect, our food with reverence and animals as our equals. 

Sarndra shares some of her case studies under ‘Real Stories’ but reminds owners and readers alike that many stories, as in life, are on-going management programs. The joy comes from sharing the journey together.
