We were very fortunate to have Dr. Dupree at our conference in 2012, since he passed away on February 27, 2013 after a two year battle with cancer. Our condolences to his family and friends.
Dr. Dupree is a 1982 graduate of the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine, where he received his training in the techniques and applications of conventional allopathic medicine.
After running a solo veterinary practice for a number of years, Dr. Dupree began to note that he was treating the same individuals over and over again for the same “diseases” or worse “diseases” as the pets aged. He also noted a decline in the general health of the pet population as conventional medicine became more aggressive with more vaccines and drugs at the veterinarian’s disposal.
He began to rethink the things veterinary school had taught him about medicine. About this same time, his son developed serious health problems which conventional medicine was unable to cure. These events led Dr. Dupree to explore alternative forms of medicine.
Through a series of fortuitous events Dr. Dupree was led to the Professional Course in Veterinary Homeopathy taught by Dr. Richard Pitcairn and the rest, as they say, is history. He has since furthered his Homeopathic education through Dr. Pitcairn’s Advanced Course in Veterinary Homeopathy, as well as through studies with various human Homeopaths in the US and abroad. Dr. Dupree was certified by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy in 1996.
Dr. Dupree holds or has held licenses in the states of Louisiana, New York, Pennsylvania, and New Mexico. Currently his practice is based in Louisiana and consists of consultations at his office in St. Francisville, in addition to telephone consultations to offer advice to care givers living outside the state.
In addition, Dr. Dupree maintains an active teaching, writing, and speaking schedule. He has served as a mentor on Dr. Pitcairn's Professional Veterinary Homeopathy web list, and as faculty for the development of the Veterinary Homeopathy Program at the American Medical College of Homeopathy in Phoenix.
His writings have been published in the Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy, The American Journal of Homeopathic Medicine, Homeopathy Today, The Natural Horse, The Louisiana Horseman's Guide, and IRiS Magazine.
