Why Choose Integrated Medicine?
Integrated medicine uses the best of ancient wisdom and modern technology.
Nutrition plays a keep part in optimising your pet's lifestyle. Improve behaviour and itchy skin with fresh food therapy.
Chiropractic + Physiotherapy
Chiropractic resets your pet's computer to realign bones and muscles, while Physio trains the muscles to do the best job possible.
There is a time and a place for traditional drug therapies. We see this predominately in emergency care but also in chronic disease treatment such as diabetes.
Herbs are a powerful addition to both nutrition and pharmacy medicines. They maximise both circulation and organ function to ensure complete wellness.
Acupuncture assists with both pain relief and mobility via activation of nervous pathways and circulation. This is commonly used to treat chronic pain and nerve damage.
Surgery can be a necessity to preserve life, repair damaged tissues or as a last resort in chronic disease treatment.
