Purely Simple Animal Wellness

Empowering you to care for your animals naturally and simply.

Caring for your pet's health should be purely simple.


Hello, my name is Barb Fox.

I'm a veterinarian who cares deeply about the health of our animal companions. In my 25+ years of experience, I've seen thousands of animal patients. Those experiences – as well as my own health challenges – have given me a new perspective about how important the basics of proper nutrition and limiting exposure to toxins are for optimum health in your furry friends.

That's why I created the Purely Simple Animal Wellness courses. Because like you, I love my animals and want them to have the best possible life.

I want to help you help your animals live a long and healthy life and show you that it doesn't have to be complicated.


In fact, there are 4 simple things you can do to help your beloved companion live a long and healthy life they deserve:

  1. Provide them with a wholesome diet
  2. Reduce their exposure to chemicals and toxins
  3. Support their vital immune systems
  4. Provide a secure, loving environment


I'll teach you exactly how to do this with the Purely Simple online courses. You'll feel empowered and confident to do the things that will keep your cat, dog or horses happy and healthy!

Enroll now to view course offerings - your animals deserve the best!

With love, Dr. Barb

I'm here for you and your pet.

If you have questions about any of the Purely Simple courses – or if you have a more specific concern about your pet's health that would be better served through a consultation – I invite you to call me at (563) 380-0983.

If I'm unable to take your call, please leave me a voicemail and I'll return your call within 1 business day. If it's an animal emergency, please contact your veterinarian first.

Consulting Services

In addition to her online teaching, Dr. Barb Fox is available for private consultations by phone. For dates and times, please contact Dr. Fox directly at (563) 380-0983 or [email protected]

She will go over a detailed history of your animal’s state of health, including what diet you’re feeding, if your pet has experienced a lot of recent stress, what phobias / fears it has, what chemicals your pet is exposed to, and many other factors that can be impacting your animal’s health.

"I am so thankful that Dr. Fox developed the Purely Simple Pet Nutrition course. She uses language that anyone can understand, regardless of where they are in their knowledge of the pet food industry. This course was information-dense; it really had everything I needed in order to move forward with making homemade food for my dog, Dottie. She loves it... laps up her meals in about 30 seconds! It feels so good going to sleep at night knowing that I have provided my Dottie with the best possible nutrition in order to prevent disease and sickness in her body.

Thanks, Dr. Barb! We appreciate all of your help and knowledge!"

The Infinite Bond by Barbara Fox, DVM

A true story of life, love and loss between three beautiful Arabian horses and their caretaker, Barb Fox.

If you have ever wondered how strong the bond is between animals, as well as between animals and people, this story depicts the true emotional connection they form. Even in the darkest times of her life, the three boys provided unconditional love and acceptance just with their presence.

If you don’t believe animals show emotions, this book is proof that they do.

The Animals Never Lie by Barbara Fox, DVM

A collection of intriguing case reports that will inspire and amaze you.

Many times, alternative medical therapies are sought after an animal hasn’t responded to conventional medicine or when it has been given a poor prognosis from a chronic disease. Animals cannot fake or pretend a response to treatment, whatever method of therapy is chosen. You’ll be astonished at the animals’ resiliency and strong will to persevere as you read through stories of spinal injury, severe allergies, chronic illness… even cancer.
