Conventional Medicine

The goal of an integrative approach to veterinary medicine is to provide clients with all of the options for pet care available.

This is achieved by using conventional medicine drugs, diagnostics and procedures TOGETHER with all other reasonable systems of medicine (Chinese medicine, chiropractic) or therapies (prolotherapy, gold bead implants) to obtain the best possible results.

Strong and Weak Points
Every system of medicine has its strong and weak points and each is utilized according to what tool is best needed for a particular animals problem. The goal is to try and cure disease or disorders and not to suppress symptoms alone.

In cases where the animal is at the end of its lifespan or has a terminal condition, the goal is to provide as high a quality of life as possible for that animal.
