What is Natural/Holistic Pet Care?
Essentially, natural/holistic pet care refers to a comprehensive health and wellness program implemented and managed by a licensed veterinarian at an animal clinic. The main objective of natural/holistic pet care is to provide a balanced wholesome diet for pets by providing them with the opportunity to live as closely as possible to their natural environment.
In terms of pet care, for example, it would be ideal to serve your pet a fresh raw well balanced diet that can provide the nutrition it needs, with minimal preservatives. Originally, cats and dogs were active hunters seeking out their food. Nowadays, however, dogs are mostly house pets served with yummy treats throughout the day and inadequate water volume & quality consumption. Still, this does not necessarily mean that they can afford to lose out on certain proteins and other nutrients just because they are staying at home. Inactivity can lead to obesity which in turn leads to an increase state of inflammation in your pet's body. With time, this state of inflammation leads to other chronic diseases like diabetes, osteoarthritis. A state of immune regulation can occur easily once the "fire" is started with the inflammatory cells. What we find commonly is also a state of leaky gut in the pet, which in turn leads to more inflammation and more allergies. After years of going un-diagnosed the pet can start to have autoimmune issues, where self starts to attack self.
It is still in their natural genetic makeup to need wholesome foods that can support their grown and development. What they need now is a good balance of a healthy diet & activity that can prevent chronic and acute diseases. Our animal hospital provides natural/holistic pet care services and we can provide you with better guidance on how to best feed your pets and support their immune systems.
