One of our veterinarians, Dr. Jane Morse, practices holistic medicine and wellness. She balances traditional medicine with acupuncture and herbal therapies. Dr. Morse describes this approach to health:
Holistic medicine looks at the underlying factors of an animalís disease—genetics, the environment, nutrition, and the triggers that may be responsible for your petís present condition.
At Ballston Animal Hospital, my goal is to achieve the best outcome for your pet, given his or her unique circumstances. The modalities used are:
- Nutrition—"we are what we eat" (or "we are what we donít eliminate")
- Western and Chinese herbs
Of course, conventional medicine is implemented along with these holistic treatment modalities in a way that is uniquely suited to your pet.
My approach is this: the integration of many forms of medicine, with the objective being the enhancement of your petís quality of life.
If you are interested in a holistic approach to your petís health care, please call for an appointment with Dr. Morse at Ballston Animal Hospital. For your convenience, you may complete this Holistic Consultation Form and email it to us prior to your appointment.
