He completed his acupuncture training at Chi Institute in 2012. He has interests in homeopathy and energy healing. He garnished a reputation as a holistic, compassionate veterinarian. In 2016 he sold his practice and went into an early retirement but his passion for healing animals was too strong to keep away.
