Best of two worlds
Both Western and Eastern medicine has its miracles to offer if used in right time, right way, by a right doctor. When there’s an extreme pet health scare it would be irresponsible to ignore the immense medical advances science has provided to us, and it’s a good idea to get a regular check-up to see what’s happening with your pets' internal chemistry.
A Place and Time for Both
Every pets' health needs and problems are unique and require individual approach. For instance, when animal is suffering from a depression, holistic medicine could help to understand why digestion issues could be cause of it. However, there are times when it is better choice to "remove" the issue rather than treating it, as it's the case with failing organs. Nevertheless, Western medicine doesn't have to be a single option.
Focus on Prevention
Just as we all know prevention is the best cure for pets. Holistic approach, comes really handy when instead of using conventional veterinary interventions, it's the best to have "wellness visits" and focus on preventing imbalances rather than healing them. In practice, there are more pet owners who look for alternative methods after the pet's health condition gets worse due to over-dose of medications, or because post-surgical care went wrong, and they lose hope in traditional medicine.
