Iridology has been around for many years. Dr. Ignacz Von Preezely began human Iridology in the early 1800s. In 1950, Dr. Bernard Jenson received the title of “Father of Iridology”, and since 1994 Veterinarian Dr. D. Eckerdt and Herbalist Mercedes Colburn began animal Iridology.


The eyes are the windows to the inside of the body and can reveal the state of health just by looking at the patterns, colours, and other characteristics. They reflect the past, present, and future state of health for all animals, as well as Emotional and Mental issues.

Via the iris, the eyes can serve as a window to “early warning” signs that problems are starting to manifest long before the cause or disease symptom is recognized.

The iris reveals the inherited weaknesses and strengths, and the conditions of the body and organs through various markings and colourings. It does not reveal specific diseases. It can only reflect the condition of the tissue, e.g., inflammation, toxicity, congested lymph’s, etc.


Iridology Technicians are not allowed to diagnose due to the Veterinary standards. However, we are able to see over and under activity in specific areas of the body, by using the highly sophisticated illuminator. The topography of the iris reflects the major tissue structure of the body. Each major system has a specific location on the iris map.


Iridologists can help all animals, be it a dog, cat, horse, snake, duiker, etc., using the highly sophisticated camera built for taking pictures of the iris, which gives an accurate view of the reading.


Very often an animal becomes “grumpy”, “aggressive”, “depressed”. From the outside, there appears to be nothing wrong with the body. However, the inside reveals the truth, and only the animal knows how it really feels. By using Iridology, the animals can be saved from distress.

Equine eyes have what one calls a Granula Iridica, also known as an awning, umbrella or shades. No two eyes have the same markings, and they could be used as an identification tag in the future. The main purpose of this structure is to keep the sun out of the eyes.

There are four stages of concern to an Iridology Technician. The first stage is the acute one, and the last stage is the degenerative one. There are four tunnels relating to the most important organs in the body. The animal’s first line of defense for a healthy body is to eliminate toxins because the digestive system is one of the areas of major concern. The bowel affects all conditions in the body – good or bad. A toxic colon passes every system in the body and can poison as it moves.

We can observe structural problems when one or more tunnels do not function 100%.

Animal Iridology is a simple, non-invasive technique that can help your animals’ performance, help you solve continual problems, and make them so much happier.


I do not diagnose illness or sickness, nor treat. However, with my healing abilities, and as an Iridology Technician, I am able to help your animal naturally in many ways.

Iridology does not replace Veterinary treatments. It is, though, a diagnostic tool whereby I, as an Iridology Technician, can pick up areas of concern, and know in which stage the condition is. It is a non-intrusive diagnostic technique, and a natural, valuable guide to health.
