For two years Dr. Mercola searched for a holistic veterinarian who shares the same principles and philosophies on natural health that he has. In November of 2009, Dr. Mercola reached out to Dr. Becker, and with their like-minded mission and purpose, the partnership began and Dr. Mercola Healthy Pets was born.
Dr. Karen Becker is a proactive and integrative wellness veterinarian, whose “goal is not just to identify the root causes of disease and degeneration in pets but to prevent the body from breaking by taking a proactive stance towards intentionally creating vibrant, thriving animals.
Her deliberate, common-sense approach to creating vibrant health for companion animals has been embraced by millions of pet lovers around the world, making her the most followed vet on social media.
In 2021, Dr. Karen Becker co-wrote the first No. 1 New York Times best-selling book about intentionally creating canine wellbeing, "The Forever Dog."
Never one to rest on her laurels, Dr. Becker is expanding Healthy Pets beyond the Mercola umbrella into its own brand, namely Bark & Whiskers™! Armed with a brand new website, pet parents will get up-to-date health news and other amazing content just for their furry family members.
The progressive rebranding of Mercola Healthy Pets to Bark & Whiskers™ is the same trusted, premium quality you have come to expect, except in a fun and playful label!
