Holistic veterinary therapies are those which take into account the whole patient when prescribing, and that encourage the body to call on its own recuperative powers to heal. Symptoms on all levels - physical, mental, and emotional - are assessed when deciding on a course of treatment.
A holistic veterinarian individualizes treatment to the particular patient. Treatment is determined not only by the presenting problem but also by the patient’s past history, personality, and peculiarities. So animals with the “same” problem may receive quite different treatments, and this is one reason why it is so important to choose a holistic vet who has had appropriate and formal advanced training.
Holistic medicine therapies for dogs & cats include:
- Herbal medicine
- Proper nutrition
There are almost no problems that cannot be treated either alone or in combination with conventional medicine.
