In the Catskills we love natural living. We also love our pets. Of course, we wish to find the right health care option for our furry friends, naturally.
Holistic healthcare is characterized by the treatment for the patient as a whole, rather than a dissected treatment of physical symptoms or disease. While still fairly new to the veterinary world , holistic care includes practices that have been in use for centuries, such as acupuncture and herbal supplements. Finding a veterinarian with a Holistic approach might be easier than thought.
From in office appointments and house calls, to over the phone consultations, the options for holistic pet health care are many. Veterinarians who offer holistic medicine in the Catskills include:
