Our animal hospital offers Herbal Medicine as an alternative pet therapy. Many plants synthesize biologically active substances and the practice of Herbal Medicine is based on the use of plants and plant extracts to maintain the health of animals. Herbs are typically classified as Western or Chinese. Herb combinations have been developed for certain disease syndromes and should only be used under the guidance of a trained veterinarian. Always tell your veterinarian what medications, herbs, and supplements your pet may be taking as certain herbal pet therapies may interfere with the absorption or action of another. Herbs, although natural, can cause adverse or toxic effects if used inappropriately. Ask your veterinarian if Herbal Medicine might be right for your pet.

Integrative Medicine

The holistic approach to veterinary medicine is excellent for preventive care and health optimization, as well as treatment of chronic conditions. Holistic modalities, such as acupuncture and herbal medicine, are used to balance the “whole” animal, so that your friend can heal and maintain the highest possible quality of life. What makes holistic treatments different from more traditional care is that they are customized to the whole pet, not just to the disease.

The techniques used in holistic medicine are gentle and minimally invasive. During appointments, we focus on the patient’s well-being and stress reduction. As part of ongoing treatment or a general wellness plan, our holistic specialists provide the following services:
