You have spent hours researching your pet’s condition online, trying to find a solution to help them? Maybe you feel like you visit your vet for the same health issues more often than you’d like, with no real solution to resolve your pet’s symptoms once and for all? Or has your pet been diagnosed with a chronic illness and you’ve been searching for answers on how to treat them naturally without continuous medications which come with harsh side effects?

This is the story I hear from many pet parents that walk through the door of Healing Tails. Every pet parent just wants to do what’s best for their fur baby and is trying to find the right answer.

How does holistic Medicine Help?

Holistic medicine works to help support your pet's body naturally. At times it may be more effective at helping to support patients suffering from chronic illnesses and disease as we work to rebalance your pet’s entire body. By determining which systems are weak in your pet and strengthening them, we are able to better support and resolve the root cause of their disease. For pets with conditions that require long term medications, we can utilize holistic medicine to augment the effects of traditional western drugs or help to alleviate and protect the body from some of the unwanted side effects.

What happens during the first exam?

Before you even bring your pet into Healing Tails for their first exam, we request records from your other veterinarians so we can have a more complete understanding of their health. During your visit we will listen carefully to all of your concerns about your pet and perform a thorough exam. We will make recommendations and create an individualized treatment plan which may include diet changes and/or the addition of supplements or herbs or additional tests to further determine the underlying cause of your pets condition. Our exams are completed on a comfy mat on the floor with you present because we believe that healing best starts in a calm environment. After your appointment we will email you a complete summary of all of the things that were discussed during your appointment.

What if I’ve already tried a diet change and supplements and those haven’t helped?

For chronic illnesses, we often have to take a multifaceted approach to help resolve the issue. This means strategically and carefully guiding you through appropriate changes to your pets nutrition and supplements and treatments to get the result that we want to achieve, which is relief from symptoms and complete healing if possible. We may even recommend additional specialized testing to learn more about what’s happening internally with your pet before initiating any changes. With over 10 years of experience helping hundreds of pets, chances are we’ve helped a pet experiencing your pet’s same symptoms and have the knowledge to guide you through the process. We also offer acupuncture, chiropractic care, and laser therapy.
