Dr. Evans was born March 20, 1947 in Manchester, England and graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1972. His special interest in dermatology led him to look for alternative ways to treat chronic problems.
A personal experience with acupuncture and homeopathy caused him to explore these treatment options. He has studied with Dr Paul Herscu, a naturopathic physician who specializes in homeopathy, and with Dr Richard Pitcairn.
Dr. Evans graduated from the Professional Course in Veterinary Homeopathy in 1995 and was certified in 1996. He teaches the Canadian Professional Course in Veterinary Homeopathy: a 126-hour, 5-session course.
This course prepares veterinarians to treat acute and chronic health problems with homeopathic medicine. This is the only Canadian course certified by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy.
To date the three classes have graduated 45 veterinarians from all across Canada. Dr. Evans also team-teaches Dr Pitcairn's U.S. class.
He lectures to dog clubs and interested public groups on holistic approaches to healing and preventive health care. His practice is located in Chester Basin, Nova Scotia.
