What is integrative veterinary medicine?

Integrative medicine combines all branches of medicine to create the best individual approach to each patient. Using holistic medicine often further supports our patients also being treated with conventional medicine. Holistic medicine can be used alone. Our doctors are proficient in all forms of medicine and know when to treat with holistic modalities and when to refer to a different specialist.

What is the difference between holistic and homeopathic medicine?

Holistic Medicine is a branch of medicine off of the tree of veterinary medicine, like conventional medicine is. Homeopathy is a smaller branch off of the holistic branch.

Will my animal sit still for acupuncture? Does it hurt?

We use very thin acupuncture needles which are barely noticed when placed. If for some reason your pet is uncomfortable after the placement of a needle, it will be removed. Once the needles are in, most of our patients experience what we call the acupuncture chill, where they settle down and take a nap. As every patient is an individual, we are accommodating for our patients' individual needs. So if your pet needs to pace with their needles in they are allowed to do so.

Are there any side effects to acupuncture?

Your pet may be sleepy for 24 hours after their treatment or they may go home and run around. Everyone responds differently.

Do you see success using acupuncture and herbs in dogs and cats?

Absolutely! Every case is different, and our doctors are experienced veterinarians who have helped thousands of patients. Integrative and holistic medical approaches are like anything else in life which requires maintenance. You don't go to the gym once and are fit for life. The same thing goes for maintaining health. Keeping the body, mind and spirit in homeostasis is a lifelong journey.

How often does my pet need to come in?

We recommend your pet comes in once a week for 3 weeks and then a maintenance plan is made which may look like once a month or at the change of seasons.
