Integrative Medicine is medical care that integrates conventional medicine with more holistic modalities. The goal is to find the best blend and balance for each patient and each situation. It is a very individualized approach to medicine- there is nothing ‘cookie cutter’ about it. At Kensington Veterinary Hospital we utilize acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine and herbs, western herbs, homeopathy, nutrition (including supplements), and laser, and other options as we find appropriate. Integrative medicine is based on a deep respect for the traditional methods that have been utilized for many years in many cultures, and our more modern approaches. We find that this approach allows us to offer the best of all options, in a customized care plan for each patient.
