FINDING A HOLISTIC VET IN YOUR AREA

You can use this site to start. If you're moving, don't forget to find and research your new vet before you have some kind of an emergency situation. Also, make sure you and your new vet are on the same page: are they truly holistic or just symptom treating with natural remedies?

Don't be afraid to ask if their basic philosophy is one of 1) removing toxins from the the animal's inner and outer environment, 2) cleansing the animal's system of residual toxins, and 3) strengthening the body nutritionally so it can heal itself.


Wishing you vibrant health
and precious moments-

One way to reduce the strain of moving with a pet is to develop a relationship with a veterinarian that is able to work by phone. Not every situation can be addressed at a distance, but having a vet who is familiar with the patient makes it easier to decide if emergency conventional care is warranted.

My vet in Seattle is traditional but open to new ideas. When my cat had liver disease, we gave her milk thistle (and I hand-fed her twice a day for 5 very long weeks). Today she's bouncing around, eating everything in sight and purring nonstop.
