Holistic Medicine at Fondren Pet Care Center
What is Holistic Medicine?
Holistic or Integrative Medicine means considering all aspects of the animal’s life and employing all of the practitioner’s senses, as well as the combination of conventional and alternative methods of treatment.
Holistic options at Fondren Pet Care Center include:
Antioxidants are substances that reduce damage to the body at the cellular level. Some common antioxidants are Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Selenium. Antioxidants have been proven to improve the function of the immune system. They even increase the effectiveness of vaccinations! Look for a combination product for the best results, and remember that some vitamins should not be taken in large doses. Try Canine Plus vitamins, Canine Plus Senior, or Select Antioxidant Blend.
Fatty Acid Supplements
Fatty acid supplements use fish, flax seed, and other oils to suppress inflammation. These products have been found to help dogs with skin infections, allergies, ear problems, arthritis, and possibly even cancer. Try 3V Caps or Actis Omega.
Probiotics are “good” bacteria that live in the intestinal tract. Studies have also shown probiotics to be important to the immune system. Probiotics are a natural way to treat diarrhea and other intestinal problems. And because they increase the barrier function of the skin and other organs they are beneficial for pet’s with allergies, weak immune systems, or bladder problems. Ask about Fortiflora, Proviable, and VetriBiotic BD.
