What is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine integrates or combines the best of both worlds – conventional Western medicine and alternative medicine – together into a whole. At Acres Animal Hospital, our goal is to provide integrative veterinary medicine in a friendly, caring environment to all our patient. On a case by case basis, the best treatment techniques are chosen from the conventional and alternative options and are combined into a customized treatment plan for each patient. In addition to conventional (regular) western medicine, such as vaccines, surgery, blood tests and xrays, we also use alternative medicine, such as chiropractic, acupuncture and herbal remedies, to provide a holistic approach to treating our patients. We believe that the whole patient needs to be treated for the best possible outcome, and address lifestyle as well as underlying causes of visible symptoms when treating our patients.
