Who Is Dr. Becker

whoisdr.becker.jpgKaren Becker, DVM, NMD is arguably one of the country’s most respected vets on animal nutrition, health and wellness. She has been featured on the hit television program Animal Planet and her knowledge on pet nutrition and willingness to share that knowledge has led Dr. Becker to become one of the most sought after speakers at national conventions and seminars.

Dr. Becker earned her B.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in Wildlife Management and Biology and is a graduate of the Iowa State School of Veterinary Medicine. She completed her exotic animal internship in California and continued her education by completing the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society’s certification course in Houston in 1996. She received her certification from the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy in Virginia in 1998 and earned her degree as a Naturopathic Medical Doctor in 2003.

She worked at the Raptor Center of Pueblo, Colorado rehabilitating hawks, eagles, owls and falcons. This experience culminated with her being federally licensed to rehabilitate ill, injured and orphaned wildlife.  She worked under the head veterinarian at the Berlin Zoo, Germany, and continued her studies at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. In 1999 Dr. Becker combined her training, knowledge and life-long dream by opening Natural Pet Animal Hospital in Tinley Park, Illinois. And to put her resources to work, she founded Covenant Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Illinois. She was quickly recognized by being voted one of Chicago’s Top Ten Vets by Chicago Magazine.
