Pet Holistic Service

While traditional treatment methods have proven popular due to their widespread use and effectiveness in the majority of pets, holistic veterinary medicine here at Silverthorn Animal Clinic provides a variety of alternative diagnostic and treatment options that can be beneficial in a variety of situations.

Holistic medicine is a type of healing that takes into account the entire pet when it comes to enhancing health and wellness and treating disease. We can achieve this by combining standard medicine with alternative medicines. This concept is in line with our basic beliefs, which include compassion and healing. Holistic and alternative therapies are humane, minimally invasive, gentle, and considerate of your pet’s well-being and comfort. Our veterinarians use holistic practices that consider your pet’s total health, including his or her lifestyle, age, personality, breed-specific needs, and health history.

Holistic practices take a more natural approach to healing and may often suggest a number of ‘alternative’ treatments and lifestyle changes before turning to pharmaceuticals. Naturopathy encompasses therapies such as:

  • Homeopathy
  • Herbalism
  • Acupuncture
  • Acupuncture with Electrostim
  • Chiropractic Adjustments
  • Chinese Herbals
  • Holistic Consultations
  • Second Opinions
  • Bac Flower Remedies
  • Aquapuncture

A holistic veterinarian will usually only consider prescribing drugs if these treatments have failed.
