Alternative Medicine

Holistic veterinary medicine looks at all aspects of the entire animal with emphasis on both conventional and alternative therapies as options for treatment. Holistic veterinarians recognize that modern veterinary techniques are necessary in caring for an animal, but also believe that alternative modalities such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, and chiropractic care also have a role. Holistic veterinarians concentrate on multiple areas to aid in the treatment and prevention of disease, including: nutrition and diet, environment and lifestyle, and the psychological state. Communication between the animal, owner, and veterinarian is an important part of this discipline. Let your hospital know if you have interest in a holistic medical plan for your pet.
