What is it? A combination of traditional western veterinary care combined holistic eastern natural therapies so as to offer each pet the best of both worlds when it comes to their best health care.
Prevention is the primary goal of integrative medicine. 90% of degenerative diseases in dogs and cats can be prevented with simple lifestyle changes including nutrition and exercise.
This approach helps pets enjoy longer, happier, healthier years as their health care regime is specifically designed for them and tailored to their individual needs.
Pets & Integrative Veterinary Medicine:
- Food is medicine! You are what you eat and so is your pet!
- Nutritional therapy can change the course of your pets future and help cure many aches, pains, and illnesses. A holistic diet and supplements can help your pet achieve optimal health.
- Consider the overall health of your pet before choosing a treatment plan. Is the cure worse than the disease? Older pets may need a gentler approach to healing.
- Limit your pet’s exposure to toxins, including pesticides, like chemical flea remedies, and vaccinations. (Research shows that most pets do not need traditional follow-up vaccines after their initial shots.)
