Holistic pet care refers to caring for the "whole" pet. In other words, what is best for the whole pet? Too many doctors focus on just the specific problem at hand, trying to treat a specific problem rather than treat the whole pet or prevent disease.
Holistic care looks at the whole pet, including diet, nutritional supplements, preventive care, parasite control, grooming, and exercise. We don't overlook the whole pet and just focus in on one disease. Likewise, we don't neglect conventional therapies when they are indicated. If a pet needs surgery or a medication to get better, we can use these treatments. If the pet is better served with a complementary therapy, or a combination of conventional and complementary therapies, we take this approach. Holistic means being open-minded to what is in the best interest of the pet.
By combining both conventional therapies and complementary therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, and homeopathy, we can help the pet heal itself and stay healthy.
