Since 1970, Woodside Animal Hospital has proudly offered alternative veterinary medicine as part of their comprehensive animal care for cats, dogs, birds, and other domestic pets. It’s our belief that traditional medicine is perfectly complemented by many forms of holistic and homeopathic vet services, and is an excellent way to optimize your pet’s overall wellness.
What is a Holistic Veterinarian?
Dr. John Simon, Woodside’s holistic veterinarian, believes in the philosophy which states that ideal animal care is “more than medical.” He, along with other practitioners of holistic veterinary medicine, utilizes alternative methods of treatment and care to help animals prevent disease, reduce pain and inflammation, promote tissue healing, recover from illness, resolve underlying causes of dysfunction, and increase their overall health and well-being. Examples of holistic veterinary services offered at Woodside include:
- Pet acupuncture
- Nutritional counseling
- Herbal therapy
- Stem cell therapy
- Cold laser therapy
- Chiropractic care
What are the Benefits of Holistic Vet Services?
Advances in modern science have provided veterinarians wonderful opportunities to help cats, dogs, and other animals prevent and/or recover from disease and illness. To this end, traditional veterinary medicine absolutely has its place. But the benefits of traditional veterinary care are enhanced by alternative medicine provided under the expert and caring eye of a homeopathic vet. Alternative medicine encourages veterinary team members to consider the whole animal when providing care, which promotes better outcomes. Unique factors are assessed when designing individualized treatment programs, including breed, environment, age, home life, and background.
Holistic vet services also tend to be less invasive compared to their traditional counterparts, and tend to have minimal to no side effects for your animal.
