Holistic + Conventional = Integrative Medicine
Conventional Medicine is a term used to describe today’s American allopathic focus in modern medicine. Most of the time, conventional medicine treats symptoms. These symptoms are most often treated with drugs and surgery.
For example : If your pet is vomiting, a conventional veterinarian will administer a chemical which will stop the action of vomiting.
A holistic veterinarian would aim to heal the stomach and the cause of the vomiting.
An Integrative veterinarian will do both.
Dr. Candy Akers and the Journeys Mobile Veterinary Services team use the best of both worlds to make your pet feel better as well as heal the underlying cause of disease.
