What is Integrative Medicine?

Rowan“The best of both worlds.”
Integrative medicine encompasses conventional veterinary medicine (using pharmaceuticals or drugs for treatment), plus complementary and alternative veterinary medicine for a holistic approach to veterinary medicine. At Acres Animal Hospital, we combine conventional drugs, surgery, dentistry, and diagnostics (such as bloodtests and xrays) with alternatives such as acupuncture, chiropractic & myofascial therapy, traditional Chinese herbal medicine, laser, and nutrition to treat the whole patient.
