Holistic Medicine

Could your furry or scaly family member benefit from a more natural approach to health care?

Holistic care differs from conventional veterinary medicine in that it involves a more comprehensive approach to animal wellness. Rather than focusing on individual symptoms, we apply holistic care in a way that addresses your pet’s total wellbeing. That includes not only his or her body, but also the mind and spirit. Instead of turning to pharmaceuticals, holistic medicine uses a number of natural methods that are designed to stimulate the body to heal itself. Live Oak Veterinary Hospital is pleased to offer holistic medicine options, either independently or in conjunction with our traditional medical services.

With alternative therapy, we perform much more than just a comprehensive physical exam. We also ask a number of specific questions to help us learn about your animal companion’s lifestyle. For instance, we may inquire about his or her behaviors, activity level, dietary habits, medical history and other important factors. We may even evaluate your pet’s mental and emotional status. All of this information helps us form a more complete picture of his or her unique needs.

Our ultimate goal is to develop a lifestyle of health and wholeness in which your pet will thrive. If there are any medical issues present, holistic medicine can provide a minimally invasive, natural approach to healing and disease management. For healthy animals, holistic care can promote a stronger immune system, enhance performance and support a healthier, more balanced lifestyle.

The holistic care services available to patients of Live Oak Veterinary Hospital include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Chinese Herbal Medicine

For many patients, the results of these alternative and complementary therapies are nothing short of amazing.

If so, we invite you to start a conversation today and learn whether holistic medicine would be a good fit for your pet. Call today to get started!
