Alternative Veterinary Medicine
This is the practice that analyzes and takes into consideration a wide range of topics that have a direct impact on the well being of your pet. It includes the areas of Holistic, Integrative and Complementary practices that use a combination of conventional and alternative methods to find the best answers for solving your pet’s problem or distress.
A lot of doctors, that understand alternative canine and feline medical practice, will give a comprehensive evaluation that encompasses your pet’s behaviors, diet, environment, emotional stresses, and a variety of other factors. Veterinarians that recognize these practices will provide many additional services that go beyond a standard physical examination.
You can now revitalize your pet’s senses with hand made collections of healing gemstone collar necklaces! Awesome, right? Yep, now it’s possible to offer “alternative” necklaces for your fur-babies. On a simple search on the Internet you will find pet boutiques that sell unique pet jewelry and accessories online. Be sure to check out the matching bracelet collections, too – they are truly small treasures. The gemstones are not only beautiful but claims have been made, that they have the ability to rejuvenate your four legged friend through alternative healing methods. I’d say it’s worth a try…couldn’t hurt.
Aromatherapy is a great complementary therapy that I can totally recommend. It’s beneficial in alleviating many conditions such as anxiety, stress, and depression. There is an undeniable connection between smell and memory. The term aromatherapy refers to the therapeutic use of aromatic oils, or “essential oils”. Essential oils are the concentrated aromatic essences extracted from plant sources such as woods, flowers, fruits, stems, leaves, and resins.
For humans, breathing in pleasant scents eases psychological problems by activating positive emotional responses from the part of the brain that controls memory and emotion. I’m not sure if it works that same way with pets, but I know first hand that aromatherapy works quite well for my dog!
