What do herbs and homeopathy have to do with your pet? Holistic Veterinarians would love to tell you that and much more. They desire to bring healing to your pet in a natural way, which is exactly what holistic care provides. Perhaps you have discovered the importance of natural healing for your benefit, but now you can understand how this method reaches your pet as well.

So what do holistic vets want you to know?

Natural Care is Important

Your pet's body has the amazing capacity to take care of itself, and Holistic Vets can help your pet achieve utmost wellness by determining the best course to pursue. Herbal medicines can work wonders for your pet's nutrition. For example, ginger is a tropical root, and it's used in both Chinese Traditional and Western Herbal medicines. It can be served as a tablet, tincture, powder or tea. Read more how Ginger can help your pet.

A Variety of Tools.

Holistic Vets have the tools to treat your pet naturally. Your holistic vet is equipped to face any crisis. Their tools include acupuncture, herbs, chiropractic, physical therapy, homeopathy, nutritional supplements, Western or allopathic, ayurvedic, massage and aromatherapy.

Save Money

Holistic care has the potential to save you dollars. A holistic vet has access to many remedies (like herbs and plants) in the face of your pet's illnesses. The cost is often lower than more traditional routes.

Don't Just Treat: Prevent

Perhaps the biggest benefit of natural care is that it doesn't just treat, it prevents in the first place. It is effective and vital in chronic illnesses, but it also provides overall wellness and healing to the whole body, preventing sicknesses before they begin.

If this sounds like something you're interested in for your pet, then don't hesitate to contact us.
