Drinking Game Word: Healing

In Episode 16, Isabel asks Dr. Edward Bassingthwaighte, a holistic veterinarian based out of Melbourne, Australia about his uses of natural medicine and alternative approaches to treat his patients. Dr. Edward founded and teaches a healing modality known as Whole Energy Balance Bodywork that benefits dogs, cats, small mammals, chickens, reptiles, you name it. She asks for tips on how to keep our pets healthy long term and any additional support we can give our senior pets, including details about his proprietary WEBB method.

Isabel and Dr. Edward play Woo-Woo Would You or Woo-Woo Would You Not, a game Isabel played during Covered in Pet Hair's premiere episode with Best Selling Author and Animal Communicator, Tim Link. In the game, we get a better understanding of how Dr. Edward utilizes methods such as Reiki, Acupuncture, herbals, and Homeopathy to treat the pets in his care. He doesn't see most of these alternative modalities as "woo-woo" at all, but he has no time for the use of prosthetic testicular implants for dogs, calling them "all sorts of ridiculous."


Dr Edward Bassingthwaighte BVSc(HonsII) is a holistic veterinarian of 24 years experience, and the founder and senior teacher of the Whole Energy Body Balance (WEBB) Method. The WEBB method has arisen from his devotion to helping animals heal and be happy with holistic, hands-on work, and is inspired by a lifetime of working with animals: training and competing on horses (campdrafting), working stock, and training dogs.

Dr Edward is available for in-person treatments for animals and humans in Frankston, Melbourne and for distant sessions by way of video conference globally.
