Integrative medicine is a relatively new term, especially in veterinary medicine. It is, however, a fast growing field of healthcare because of its effectiveness when treating pets. Integrative medicine and health reaffirm the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.
Integrative medicine combines modern medicine with established approaches from around the world. By joining modern medicine with proven practices from other healing traditions, integrative practitioners are better able to relieve suffering, reduce stress, maintain the well-being, and enhance the resilience of their patients.
I like to work closely with your primary veterinarian to ensure my patients are receiving appropriate traditional veterinary care along with the treatments the patient is receiving in my care.
