While traditional treatment methods have proven popular due to their widespread use and efficacy in the majority of pets, holistic veterinary medicine at Sharon Center Veterinary Hospital offers a variety of alternative diagnostic and treatment options that can be beneficial in a variety of situations.
Pet Holistic Options
Holistic medicine is a type of healing that considers the entire pet to improve health and wellness and treat disease. We can accomplish this by combining conventional medicine with complementary and alternative medicine. This idea is consistent with our fundamental beliefs, which include compassion and healing. Holistic and alternative therapies are gentle, humane, and considerate of your pet’s well-being and comfort. Our staff employs holistic practices that consider your pet’s overall health, including lifestyle, age, personality, breed-specific needs, and health history.
Holistic practices take a more natural approach to healing and may recommend various “alternative” treatments and lifestyle changes before resorting to pharmaceuticals. Naturopathy includes treatments such as:
- Acupuncture with Electrostim
- Chiropractic Adjustments
- Chinese Herbals
- Holistic Consultations
- Second Opinions
- Bac Flower Remedies
A holistic veterinarian usually only considers prescribing drugs if these treatments fail.
