Dr. Mia Frezzo is a veterinarian, wife, and mother of three young children who resides in North Jersey. Her passion for veterinary medicine was instigated and fostered by her uncle—also a veterinarian—with whom she worked and studied since the age of 14. She graduated from Ohio State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1998, returning home to New Jersey after.
She is the owner and medical director of the Animal Hospital of Hasbrouck Heights in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey. Dr. Frezzo’s patients, primarily dogs and cats, benefit greatly from her combined holistic and traditional approach, emphasizing doTERRA essential oils, natural health, and illness prevention.
Dr. Frezzo became convinced of the power of essential oils when they cured her two-year-old daughter of a chronic respiratory illness. As she grew increasingly frustrated with her daughter’s lack of progress and dependence on prescription medications, Dr. Frezzo sought other remedies. Within just two weeks of using doTERRA Breathe and On Guard, her daughter’s respiratory issues were fully resolved.
This profound experience changed Dr. Frezzo’s approach to patient care. Since that first encounter with essential oils, Dr. Frezzo has proudly and confidently spoken in support of natural doTERRA essential oils and natural products with her family, friends, and clients, both in the United States and abroad. She has seen remarkable improvements in the physical and emotional well-being of her patients, leading to her writing SpOIL Your Pet: A Practical Guide to Using Essential Oils in Dogs and Cats.
Dr. Janet Roark is a veterinarian and the proud owner of Hill Country Mobile Veterinary Service in Austin, Texas. She triple-majored for her BS at Ohio’s University of Findlay in biology, equestrian studies, and pre-veterinary medicine, along with minoring in chemistry. Afterward, she graduated from Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005.
Dr. Roark began using essential oils for her own health after battling both physical and emotional struggles related to stress. She then used essential oils in her veterinarian practice about six months after integrating them into her daily life. She now specializes in integrating acupuncture and essential oils along with traditional modalities.
Essential oils literally changed her life forever, and she has made it her mission to educate people all over the world regarding the safe and effective use of doTERRA essential oils with animal treatment.
Dr. Janis Fisher is a graduate of the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Early in her career, she realized that she wanted to take a more holistic approach to healing. In 2005, she became a certified veterinary acupuncturist through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society; ever since, her practice has included both acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine herbal therapy.
She has gone on to become a certified canine rehabilitation therapist and, most recently, a certified animal chiropractor. She is also a member of the College of Animal Chiropractors.
Her desire to use natural therapies lead her to doTERRA essential oils. After witnessing the health benefits of the essential oils in her own home, Dr. Fisher included them into her veterinary rehabilitation practice. doTERRA essential oils are now diffused daily at her practice, and she enjoys educating colleagues on the therapeutic use of essential oils with their animal patients.
