How does natural animal health differ from veterinary treatments?

Our naturopathic approach to animal health services may differ from traditional veterinary services in a number of ways. Our holistic pet care approach complements vet services. The focus is on treating the underlying causes of pet’s health disorders and animal therapy may include herbal medicine, animal homoeopathy, natural diet, nutrition programs for animals and natural therapies that are commonly used for humans such as herbal medicines and nutrient supplements. We complement the services provided by your existing vet and collaborate with your vet for the best treatment outcomes for your fur kid.

We provide natural and holistic canine health care to help improve your dog’s health. Common conditions treated with natural animal health programs include canine arthritis, pain and inflammation, skin disorders, allergies, infections, cancer, digestive problems, food allergies, and natural worming programs. Consulting an animal naturopath may help you to treat your dog safely, rapidly and effectively. Preventative animal health care is also offered and you may reduce vet service bills as well as improving your dog’s health and wellbeing.

We supplement canine veterinarian services with a range of natural animal therapies for dogs. We advocate a holistic approach to dog care with a focus on canine diet and preventative animal health programs. Dogs skin, liver and digestive problems, anxiety & arthritis are common conditions that may be successfully treated with natural animal therapies. In some instances these may be more successful than conventional vet treatments.

Our natural canine health programs work in tandem with vet services to provide a holistic canine health solution. Canine nutrition is central to this natural animal health approach. We provide natural remedies for skin problems including itching and hot spots on dogs, inflammatory bowel disorders, anxiety, urinary tract infections, arthritis and other degenerative joint problems, recurrent ear infections and yeast infections, cancer, skin disorders such as atopic dermatitis, hormone imbalances and thyroid disorders. Often canine veterinarian treatments have not worked and natural remedies may prove to be more effective, when approved by your veterinarian.

Please consult a qualified animal naturopath for advice about nutritionally-balanced diets and naturopathic medicines for the treatment of animals. 

Yours In Great Health,
