Veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Pohl told Fox News the campaign’s team of medical staff are using “alternative treatments” to treat their patients.
“We’ve been hearing about the Trump campaign using alternative medicine and alternative medicine practitioners for the past six months, and I’ve been very concerned about that,” she said.
“I can’t imagine any other candidate running for president of the United States that would use the same kind of tactics that they have.”
Pohl said the campaign has been sending her patients to her rural veterinary clinic for more than a year.
“There are a lot of people who have not seen a vet in six months.
They just have no place to go,” she told Fox.
Pohl added that she’s seen patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and a variety of conditions.
“I have a lot to offer to our patients.
I’m not just a doctor, I’m a compassionate doctor,” she added.
Polos vet clinic in rural Kansas has been receiving hundreds of complaints about the campaign.
One patient, who has had the condition for six years, told Fox she was told by the campaign staff to stop taking their medication.
“They’re using their alternative medicine, I don’t know what it is, I just think it’s a very unhealthy practice,” she explained.
Pols vet clinic also received a complaint from another patient who said her husband’s health had declined due to the campaign team’s use of alternative medicine.
“He had an elevated blood pressure and they were using a lot more medications than they should be,” she recalled.
“They’re taking our money and giving it away, and our bills have doubled.”
In a statement, the campaign defended their medical staff.
“It is absolutely not true that the Trump administration’s medical team is abusing their authority, but rather that they are providing the highest quality care to our country’s vets,” the statement read.
“While the Trump team has not made any such claim, we will continue to hold them to the highest ethical and medical standards.”
