“Holistic” vet care means that we aim to address not only the physical, but also the mental and emotional health of your animal companions. As holistic vets, we integrate conventional medicine with our training in natural medicine to provide a broad range of knowledge, skills and techniques to support the health of your animals. Our focus is not just on treating disease - we are working toward wellness & good health for your pets. Feeding a natural, minimally processed, balanced diet is a corner stone of success.
Our vision is to empower our clients to be informed, active participants in their animal’s health care, from birth to end of life.
Our aim is to work as a team to find the right balance between the conventional and natural approaches to health care, for better long-term outcomes with fewer unwanted side effects.
Regular wellness consultations and examinations ensure health issues are identified early. Where health issues exist, our vets use an integration of conventional and alternative medical diagnostic and treatment options.
We are passionate advocates for natural, raw or cooked diets for cats and dogs. Either homemade or commercially prepared, we will support you with advice and balanced feeding plans. Our online shop sells a range of minimally processed, natural foods.
