Dr. Sasan Haghighat

, , Canada
Veterinarian, The Holistic Vet

Sasan Haghighat (Hyatt) graduated from Veterinary School in 1995. He went
on to take additional training in Germany before preparing for and
passing his licensing exams in Ontario in 2003. He worked at the Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in Newmarket and the
Veterinary Emergency Clinic (VEC) in Toronto. Having a strong family
background in natural healing methods, he soon developed a new passion:
the belief that healing starts from inside. The more he practiced
veterinary medicine, the less medication he prescribed. His mantra soon
became: Let Food be your Medicine and Medicine be your Food.

Dr Sasan has also worked with the Earth Rangers and in a private practice
in the York Region. In the spring of 2006 he met Dr Autumn Drouin, a
leading naturopathic doctor and veterinarian, and they immediately became
very good friends and started working closely together. This led him to
attend the world-renowned Chi Institute in Florida where he studied
veterinary acupuncture and food therapy (including herbs) based on
traditional Chinese medicine. He has certifications in both disciplines
and also over 350 hours of hands-on training in veterinary chiropractic,
canine rehabilitation, and matrix repatterning.

He is also certified in postural rehabilitation and holds a post-graduate
diploma in Bio-Regulatory Medicine through BioMedic in the United Kingdom.

He and Dr Drouin successfully combined their treatment modalities,
including naturopathic medicine, homotoxicology, biological medicine,
herbal medicine, acupuncture, and conventional medicine.

His training both as a seasoned emergency veterinarian and a holistic
veterinarian gives him a deep understanding of health, and has given him
the ability to have a full spectrum approach when treating his patients.

He believes, as long as there is no immediate medical risk, that all the
healing should come from inside and that his role is to support the body
by using natural means. He sees over and over that patients with seemingly
hopeless medical conditions can benefit tremendously from natural
medicine.

The art and science of medicine is a lifelong study to which Dr. Sasan is
dedicated. He continues to regularly attend seminars, courses, and
conferences on various medical and veterinary topics.

In his free time, Sasan enjoys cooking, travelling, taking his dog, Tessa,
for long hikes, and preparing home-made food for Tessa and his two cats,
Dude and Teddy. Life is good ….
