Holistic medicine isn’t just for people: Alternative therapies are also becoming popular for pets.
Common holistic treatments for pets include:
– Acupuncture: Senior pets and pets with chronic medical conditions benefit from the natural pain relief and anti-inflammatory responses associated with acupuncture.
– Massage therapy: Pets can experience increased range of motion, reduced scar tissue and improved circulation with massage therapy. It is particularly good for older pets experiencing pain from inflammation and arthritis.
– Supplements: Your veterinarian may recommend vitamins or supplements to improve pets’ well-being as they age. Like people, supplements may also be beneficial during pregnancy or illness.
