Veterinarian, Dr. Loudon with Her Dogs, Brody and Joey

In my 20 years in the animal ER, I have seen, first hand, the deleterious effects diet, over-vaccination, and chronic pesticides have had on my patients’ lives. Dogs’ lives are getting shorter while obesity, chronic illness, and cancer numbers are rising dramatically. It’s time to use some scientific data and good ole common sense to turn this around. I’m glad you’re here. Together, let’s make sure you have the longest time possible with your most loyal friend.

Healing Haven Animal Foundation

In 2012, Dr. Loudon founded her own non-profit organization, Healing Haven Animal Foundation. Its main purpose is to fund urgent veterinary care for pet owners who cannot afford to pay for treatment. Healing Haven Animal Foundation also provides funding to clinics that treat stray animals in critical condition.

Joey the Pit Bull

Dr. Loudon was recognized in 2012 by local and national news for her role in saving the life of an abused pit bull puppy named Joey. Authorities determined that Joey was used as a bait dog for dog fights. When he became injured, Joey’s owners shoved him into a garbage bag. They then disposed of him by throwing the bag out of a moving car onto the shoulder of a Long Island highway. A witness to this heinous act rescued Joey and brought him to Dr. Loudon’s clinic. Over the  next few months, Dr. Loudon treated the pit bull pup’s life-threatening injuries and paralysis. Joey’s progress was so miraculous, his story was featured on News 12 Long Island, CBS, and NBC. Dr. Loudon and Joey were also guests on Fox and Friends. Eventually, Dr. Loudon adopted Joey and he has been her loyal and beloved dog ever since. Watch Joey’s progress in this visual documentary.
