Overview: Holistic animal care is not just about addressing issues that are going on inside of an animal, but also identifying outside influences that may be affecting his health, and caring for an animal holistically requires an understanding of its true natural needs. This means that the caregiver must have an understanding that every animal is an individual— with a unique set of personal needs and nuances that are unlike those of any other.
So where does the path to holistic wellness begin? How can we determine the correct course of natural care for our beloved companion… one that looks beyond the symptoms of disease, to find the cause and reach a curative solution for what ails our pets?
In this episode I discuss the topic of Holistic Medical Decision Making with world renouned holistic veterinarian, Christina Chambreau, DVM.
