Holistic (or integrative or complementary) veterinary medicine is the examination and diagnosis of an animal that considers all aspects of the animal’s life, and employs all of the practitioner’s senses. Treatment is generally a combination of conventional and alternative (and complementary) modalities. We often integrate Ayurvedic medicine and homeopathic medicine in our holistic treatments.
Veterinarians who practice holistic medicine seek to gather information about your pet’s behaviors, complete medical and dietary history, and environment, including current diet, emotional stresses, and other factors. A thorough understanding of your pet’s health will help our veterinarians make recommendations and provide you with the appropriate treatment options to improve your pet’s health. The techniques used in holistic medicine are gentle, minimally invasive, and incorporate patient well-being and stress reduction.
