Our Visiting Specialists

Mark P. Haverkos, DVM

Dr. Haverkos is a 1982 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, and currently owns a practice in his hometown of Oldenburg, Indiana. Dr. Haverkos is widely recognized for his expertise in the fields of alternative and integrative veterinary medicine, with a special interest in acupuncture, chiropractic, and homeopathy. Although he runs a single doctor practice, he often travels to other states to adjust patients and lecture at veterinary conferences.

Shortly after veterinary school, Dr. Haverkos accepted a position as Director and Head Clinician of Hopi Veterinary Services on the Hopi Indian Reservation in Arizona. During his time there, Dr. Haverkos had the opportunity to develop and refine some revolutionary alternative therapies for the treatment of large and small animals.

The Balance Veterinary Center staff extends a warm welcome to Dr. Haverkos during his frequent visits to Maryland. We are pleased to be able to offer his services to our clients. Dr. Haverkos is no stranger to the veterinary staff here at BVC:  he and Dr. Monique Maniet were both founding members of the American Holistic Veterinary Association in 1984.
