Dr. Judy Jasek

Veterinarian

Dr. Judy received her formal education at Colorado State University, including a bachelor’s degree in Zoology in 1984, followed by her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1988. Following graduation, she started her career in a rural, mixed-animal practice in Pocatello, ID. She then relocated to the Salt Lake City, UT area before returning to Denver, CO, in 2001. She purchased a practice in Englewood, CO, in 2003, which she transitioned from a conventional practice to one with a strong holistic foundation. She then sold this practice in 2015 and now operates out of her home in Colorado.

Using the knowledge gained in her 30+ years of practicing, Dr. Judy has developed a unique whole-body approach to both treating and preventing disease. She looks at the whole animal and supports the natural healing ability of the body with proper nutrition, detoxification, and eliminating the underlying causes of disease.

She then uses tools such as ozone, herbs, CBD, essential oils, and whole food supplements to optimize the health of the body and help it to eliminate the disease.

She does not believe in a magic-bullet approach, whether it is using an herb or a conventional pharmaceutical. The body is a biological system and needs to be supported in many different aspects. Her wellness plans begin helping at a young age, addressing nutrition and reducing the use of vaccines and pharmaceuticals to help the pet get off to a great start with a strong immune system.

In her personal time, she has found that spending time in nature is both inspiring and rejuvenating. She loves to spend time hiking, snowshoeing, and camping with her husband, Chris. When at home, she enjoys reading, running, gardening, and cooking, and is always looking for new things to learn.

Her personal pet and teacher is Wylie, a Chihuahua mix, who is always in her shadow.

Happy 2021 to all of Dr. Judy’s valued clients!

She thought it was time we pulled back the curtain (ala Wizard of Oz!) to let you know a bit about the person you’ve been so graciously interacting with for your pets.

I’m Tess, originally from the NW Suburbs of Chicago, but I’ve lived here in Colorado for over 30 years now, so hoping I’ve achieved honorary “native” status. (although Chicago Pizza rules! Lol)

I was hugely into human nutrition when I was younger, but when I lost my first malamute/shepherd to osteosarcoma, I began a journey into why a beautifully healthy dog would develop such an awful disease, and thus began the obsession to create the healthiest lifestyle and diet for my pups!

I’ve been super fortunate along the way to have learned from some amazing vets and nutritionists, along with my own “kids” willing to let me guinea pig them with what I’ve learned, and ultimately I’ve landed here, with Dr. Judy practicing true holistic medicine, which is an honor for me!

The obligatory, what I like to do in my time off: HIKE with my guy and my kids (as is evident by the pic). I’m so lucky to live in the mountains, so it’s a daily lifestyle practice for me with longer excursions in my free time to the backcountry…and ok, lest you think me TOO health-driven, a glass of wine with a fire in the evening as my “reward!”

Passion other than animal nutrition: HUMMINGBIRDS! I’m obsessed with the little creatures and a slave to them April through September lol. Last year I went through more than 180# of sugar!!

I’m incredibly blessed and so grateful to all of you for your kindness and for those of you who have been with Dr. Judy for a long time, thank you so much for your acceptance of my role in facilitating conversations and appointments for you!

It’s just so great to be able to be a part of creating the healthiest paws for your fur babies and wishing you all the very best in this New Year!

Sincerely, Tess

RACHEL

Admin/Veterinary Assistant

I am a Colorado native and love the sunshine! In my free time I enjoy running, yoga, reading, spending time with family/ friends, chai tea, and traveling when possible. I have my Bachelor’s degree in elementary education and completed my Master’s degree in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education at Regis University.  I’ve taught preschool through first grade for the last 10 years.

My love of animals started when I was young and adopted my first cat at age 4.  I am currently a dog mom to my Shar-pei/ Golden girl Bella. I’m also a cat mom to Bebé, who I adopted in Bolivia during a semester abroad.  I lost my last dog to hemangiosarcoma, which has greatly influenced how I approach caring for my animals and the veterinary care that I seek out. I have a passion for holistic medicine for both animals and people. AHA brings together both my love of animals and my passion for holistic medicine. Now I’m excited to partner with the AHA team in serving our valued clients.

Chris

Practice Manager

Dr. Judy’s husband and all-around support guy, Chris has always been in the background providing whatever technical support the practice required. In 2021 he left his corporate job to help manage the ever-growing and evolving Animal Healing Arts on a full-time basis.

He is our resident ozone equipment expert who designed our rental kits, assists clients in purchasing their own units for home use, and provides all of the personalized equipment training. He is also the inventor of the world’s first (as far as we know) CBD vaporizer designed specifically for treating pets with lung carcinomas.

Chris is thrilled to be using his various skills to the benefit of all creatures, great and small, pets and humans alike. At home, he enjoys problem-solving, organizing, engineering, and inventing. For leisure, he prefers to be somewhere off-grid: hiking, snowshoeing, camping, and exploring.
