Pamela Fisher, DVM
Pamela Fisher, DVM decided to become a veterinarian at age 14 after witnessing an unsolved disease which affected many horses in her hometown. She graduated with a BS from The Ohio State University and and continued her studies at the OSU veterinary school where she graduated in 1982. After many years in traditional small animal practice, she felt that alternative choices would greatly benefit our pets and she pursues holistic education seminars across the country. Dr. Fisher has practiced holistic veterinary medicine for over 20 years and is a member of the American Holistic Veterinary Association, Ohio and American Veterinary Medical Associations. Today she uses holistic and alternative methods to increase the vitality and health of our pets in northeastern Ohio. She comments: “Most of my patient challenges turn into miracles every day, and by providing proper nutrition and balance, our animals can use their innate ability to self-heal.”
In 2011, Dr. Fisher founded the non-profit Rescue Animal MP3 Project with her passion to improve the quality of life of rescue and shelter animals across the United States. Her organization donates free MP3 players filled with 30 hours pre-recorded music that is specifically formulated to provide a calmer environment for animals. Shelter Follow Up Evaluations show up to 95% less barking (an average of 54%) and the animals are an average of 58% more relaxed! Now, her dream of providing calming music and holistic products to help all the animals has become a reality with the creation of CALM MY PET Company. This is her way of reaching out and helping as many animals as she can worldwide.
Born and raised here in Canton Ohio her passion for animals was sparked at the young age of 5, with a sweet feline companion named Patches. Patches seemed to act more like a dog then cat, she would allow Miranda to dress her in doll clothes and push her around in a stroller, and from there her love for animals grew. She had a wide range of childhood pets from Cats, Birds, Turtles, Hamsters, and Fish. By age 8 her family adopted their first of many dogs. She was always bringing home some animal that needed care and love. Thankfully she had understanding parents who never turned them away. During her teenage years she was blessed with a yellow Labrador named Baron. Together as a team they were avid members in local 4-h groups, showing in both county and the Ohio state fair. Her journey with Dr. Fisher started in 2004, when she was 15 years old, over the years she has learned much and couldn’t imagine working anywhere else. Miranda shares her home with 2 “Fur-Children”. Auna a 10 ½ year old long haired German shepherd who picked Miranda as her own at 8 weeks of age, and started her love affair with German Shepherds. She has been the most loving and dedicated companion anyone could ask for. Jase a goofy 4 ½ year old Labrador who thinks the world is his playground, and has never had a bad day. His job is to make them smile; luckily for them he is good at his job! In her spare time Miranda enjoys the outdoors, shopping and travel.
