Description: Dr. Daneila Lewgoy joins the show from Porto Alegre, Brazil. Her clients are not of the human type. Rather as a veterinarian who specializes in acupuncture and herbs she sees more of the exotic animals. How do you find UB-23 on a python? Or does Yin Tang work on a howler monkey? To her though, it’s normal, she just goes to work everyday!
Dr. Daniela Lewgoy, having been a small animal surgeon for 4 years, decided that she was not doing enough for her animal patients by just cutting and prescribing medication. It was at this turning point when she began to specialize in acupuncture and herbs for her animal friends of all shapes and sizes. With her increase in holistic medicine she found less and less need for invasion surgeries (yet still necessary at times).
In Brazil her clientele does not only consist of cats and dogs, but of large snakes, fish, howler monkeys, birds, pigs, porcupines, anteaters, horses, and a plethora of other creatures. A few of them are pictured below from her Instagram account.
