Pet Care

By Dr. Shawn Messonnier for WebVet

Using an integrative/holistic approach to keep your pet healthy is a great idea.  By combining the best that conventional medicine and alternative medicine can offer, you can maximize your pet’s response to therapy and minimize and possibly even prevent disease.

Pet owners who use an integrative/holistic approach to their pets’ care often find that fewer conventional medications are needed when their pets become ill.  Even when conventional medications are needed, the integrative/holistic approach often allows pets to be treated with lower doses of conventional medicine.

Holistic veterinarians have several goals for their patients.  These include preventing disease; saying no to drugs whenever possible, instead substituting an alternative therapy such as an herbal or homeopathic remedy for the conventional medication; healing the pet rather than simply treating a disease; offering hope for those cases that seem hopeless; and reducing the cost of pet care.  The integrative/holistic approach most easily allows them to achieve these goals for most of their patients.

Below are some helpful tips that can get you started on an integrative/holistic approach to pet health care. Most veterinarians can help you with these steps.

  • Feeding your pet a proper diet is the foundation upon which any integrative/holistic pet care program begins. Simply put, your pet is what he or she eats.
