What is Integrative Veterinary Medicine?

Integrative Veterinary Medicine is a comprehensive approach to pet care that
combines the best of both conventional and alternative medicine and therapies. The best of Western and Eastern medicine. This type of medicine focuses on treating the pet as a whole to create a better path to health and wellness throughout the entire life of the pet.

Preventative Care

Preventative annual wellness care is essential to help us ensure our pets stay happy, healthy and comfortable throughout their lives. An integrative wellness plan tailors the plan to the individual pet to ensure we best meet their unique needs.
