“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened” -Anatole France
Welcome to Animas Animals
When you look into an animal’s eyes you sense an energetic essence. A life-force animates the Earth’s creatures. They are more than machines. This non-physical aspect of our pets is the part we most adore. It comes when we call, comforts us when we are sad, protects us, and makes us laugh.
I call this vital spirit—animas. Animas is the Latin root of the word animals. It means souls, breath, and life. No other part of the animal is as important, yet we rarely discuss it in veterinary medicine…until now.
The Spiritual Nature of Animals: A Country Vet Explores the Wisdom, Compassion, and Souls of Animals
For more than 20 years, Dr Stange has studied what the world’s religious, scientific, and spiritual teachings say about animals in order to better understand their spiritual nature. In addition, she has gathered information from the animals themselves while working as an ambulatory veterinarian in southwestern Colorado. She consolidated the information from her fascinating journey into a memoir that has been published by New World Library.
The goal of this book is to better understand the non-physical makeup of animals for the highest good of animal care, the human-animal bond, and the well-being of all concerned.
Testimonials from our happy clients
- "...finished the book you represent, The Spiritual Nature of Animals, and loved reading it during this challenging medical time. He said it put him in touch with a whole different level of thinking which he found very uplifting. Last night at dinner when we looked through the window and saw deer eating the grass beyond our house, he said “I look at deer differently now.” In the past, we’ve chased them away because they eat so many variety of plants we try to grow. Now we just let them be, and plant vegetables and flowers in our fenced garden…"
"We took our 5 year old dachshund, Peppermint, to the vet because she was paralyzed in her back legs. We were told that our 2 options were $7000.00 back surgery or euthanasia; we looked for other options. (the video in the link below shows Peppermint's amazing recovery) We were told about Dr. Stange at the clinic and felt ready to try anything. Let me start by saying that my husband and I are in the medical field and were very skeptical of acupuncture. That being said, our baby was paralyzed and we were willing to try anything that we could afford. Well, Dr. Stange has made believers out of us. When I brought Peppermint for her first visit, she was dragging her back legs. After 5 visits, she was walking and running. She is back to her old self and we have Dr. Stange to thank for that. Words cannot express how thankful we are to her. She gave us our Peppermint back! Thank you Karlene, we love you! "

“I think that I benefitted as much from Karlene's services as my dog Blizzard did. Blizzard was suffering from chronic sinus infection and sneezing which caused him discomfort and general unhappiness. I was referred to Karlene after several expensive and painful procedures, which did not help. Karlene was able to balance Blizzard's overall health and cleared his sinus problems with acupuncture and natural medicine. He is doing amazingly well. Thank you Karlene.”Jason Gordon
- “It is with great pleasure that I recommend this book. This book is a guide to our spirituality as well as to our dear companions and all animals. It is comparative religion and spirituality guide that I will read over and over.”Dr. Stephanie Dodge
I am happy my traditional veterinarian recommended Animas Animals for "Kate," my sweet 16 year old Aussie who had wounds and paralysis from an accident with an auto. It was obvious from the first appointment that she felt better. Your care, professional knowledge, and treatment plan were all reassuring. Kate and I both looked forward to our appointments. Everyone is amazed with her profound recovery. Thank you Dr. Perkins and Dr. Stange for your outstanding services!Jackie Ellis
"Dear Dr. Stange, We will never be able to thank you enough for saving our beloved Ute's life! You have made Mike and me big believers in Eastern medicine. When the ophthalmologist from CSU came down and saw his eye, he said it would be a gamble to send him to the veterinary hospital. Even if he arrived there alive, there was no guarantee he could be saved. I thought for sure he would have to be euthanized. The day you came to do acupuncture on the dogs was the best day of Ute's life! You called 48 hours later and I was sure you were going to tell us he had died or nothing could be done to save him. Imagine how surprised we were when we arrived at your clinic to see him eating, and instead of the horrible putrid tissue, it was pink and healing! Mike and I, and especially Ute, want to thank you." Note from Dr. Karlene Golden Yellow Powder, a Chinese Herbal formula, was the thing that cleared his severe eye infection in two days after he had been on 3 antibiotics for 10 days.Mike and Sandy – Bruce Rancho del Perrofeo
