Holistic Veterinary Medicine
Pet owners /guardians can also elect the use of stand alone holistic therapy modalities such as acupuncture or herbal medicine as the treatment of choice for their pet's condition. Acupuncture is a powerful modality incorporating the use of sterile acupuncture needles used to stimulate points in the animal body to create balance in the internal environment ( homeostasis) and strengthen the immune response to cope with disease-causing external pathogenic factors. Herbal Medicine whether used with acupuncture or alone, tonify and strenghten the body to help fight disease, clears toxins and correct internal imbalances and create conditions where healing can occur naturally.
