Recently people have realized the benefits of a more natural approach to medicine and healing. It's not unheard of for even mainstream health care supporters to try acupuncture or herbal supplements for maximum health. It makes a lot of sense to apply these new discoveries about holistic medicine to our pet friends too. Have you ever considered approaching your animal's health with a holistic mindset? Does this sound appealing, but you're not exactly sure where to get started? A holistic vet can guide you to the right resources and information.  

The goal of holistic veterinaries.

Holistic vets would love to avoid the need for treatment at all. They desire to get to the roots of the issue and aid nature and your pet's body to heal itself. This kind of care prevents a lot of illnesses and pain in the first place. Pet patients receive gentleness and empathy. The methods aren't intimidating for pets and are highly impactful.

What's the difference?

You're probably wondering what is the main difference between traditional vet care and holistic vet care. Expect the holistic vet to ask lots of questions about your animal's health and condition so that he'll have a good understanding before they give a physical exam. You'll want to have some notes in preparation so that you can easily answer the vet's questions. Routines, behavior and health issues are all things the vet will want to know in order to give the high-quality holistic care your pet needs.

What kind of treatment will my pet receive?

Depending on what your pet has going on, he might receive acupuncture, herbal remedies, nutritional therapy or chiropractic help.
