Consider adding an integrative veterinarian to your pet’s healthcare team
These vets are trained in both conventional and holistic care, spending hours of continuing education to master the practice of treating the whole body. They can determine the best course of action to address a pet’s needs and often use both conventional and holistic approaches. Integrative vets not only treat a pet’s symptoms but also work to discover the source of the imbalance and heal the whole body.
