We do it for ourselves, why not our pets? If you have a conventional doctor who prescribes medications for different illnesses... AND perhaps you drink green or herbal tea, take a daily vitamin and/or herbal supplement, you already take part in an integrative approach. How?
An integrative approach to healthcare incorporates both conventional and holistic medicine.
Holistic modalities may include but are not limited to acupuncture, chiropractic, homotoxicology/homeopathy, western and Chinese herbs, vitamins and nutraceutical, nutrition and more.
Antibiotics or other conventional medications are often necessary for acute illnesses but in the long term these medications can tax organs like the kidneys and liver.
Many holistic remedies can actually support organ metabolism and health.
By augmenting conventional healthcare with an integrative approach, the need for long term conventional medicine can often be decreased, thereby lowering potential toxic side effects.
A unique and individualized protocol that is safe and effective can be designed by a qualified Holistic Veterinarian to help improve your pet's quality of life, health and comfort.
