Madalyn Ward, DVM graduated from Texas A&M University in 1980. She worked in an equine practice until 1985, and then started her own practice at Bear Creek Veterinary Clinic in Austin, Texas. After four more years of practice, she remained frustrated about many aspects of western medicine. Despite regularly attending conferences, consulting with experts and reading all the latest literature, she was still not curing many chronic conditions. Madalyn also found many standard conventional practices very invasive and unappreciated by her patients. She wanted her patients to live happier as well as healthier lives.
In 1989 she started seeking out information and training in alternative healing methods. She was amazed at the wealth of knowledge about true healing - knowledge largely ignored by conventional teaching institutions. She has found the horse-owning public and practicing veterinarians who have faced similar frustrations are open to alternative methods.
Madalyn is trained in Veterinary Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Bowen Therapy, Network Chiropractic and Equine Osteopathy. Memberships include American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners and American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association. She has authored three books, Holistic Horsekeeping, Horse Harmony, Understanding Horse Types and Temperaments and Horse Harmony Five Element Feeding Guide.
