The Benefits of Holistic Veterinary Oncology in Pets

Holistic veterinary oncology is a rapidly growing field in the veterinary world. It focuses on providing comprehensive treatments for pets that have cancer, combining conventional treatments with holistic approaches. Holistic veterinary oncology has been shown to reduce side effects from radiation and chemotherapy, improve outcomes and quality of life, speed up wound healing, and even provide a complete holistic approach to treating cancer. In this blog post, we will discuss the various benefits of holistic veterinary oncology for pets.

Fewer Side Effects

Holistic veterinary oncology is a great option for pets receiving radiation and chemotherapy treatments for cancer. This type of care seeks to reduce the number and severity of side effects that are associated with these conventional treatments. Many pet owners are concerned about the side effects of radiation and chemotherapy, and holistic veterinary oncology can be used to reduce or even eliminate them. 

In holistic veterinary oncology, alternative treatments such as herbs, vitamins, supplements, and nutrition therapy can be used to support the body’s natural healing processes and reduce side effects. Additionally, holistic treatments like acupuncture, massage therapy, homeopathy, and energy healing can be used to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, and minimize side effects.

By combining traditional treatments with holistic therapies, patients can experience fewer side effects and improved quality of life. It is important to work closely with your vet to ensure that all treatments are being used safely and effectively. With the right approach, holistic veterinary oncology can help pets stay healthy during their cancer treatment.

Improved Outcomes

As a holistic veterinary oncology clinic, we believe in taking an integrative approach to treating cancer. By combining conventional and holistic treatments, we are able to work towards providing your pet with the best possible outcome for their unique situation. Our goal is to maximize quality of life and improve the longevity of life for our furry patients. 

Conventional treatments like radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery are still important pieces of the puzzle when it comes to cancer care. However, incorporating holistic treatments in combination with conventional therapies can help minimize side effects while providing additional support for the body’s natural healing abilities. This allows us to develop comprehensive treatment plans that are tailored to each individual pet. 

Completely Holistic Approach

When it comes to treating cancer, holistic veterinary oncology seeks to treat the whole animal and its environment, rather than just targeting the tumor itself. This type of approach looks at the whole picture and involves treating the patient from the inside out, and the outside in. This approach can involve a variety of treatments, including acupuncture, Chinese herbs, nutritional support, homeopathy, herbal therapy, lifestyle modification and more. 

At our clinic, we work closely with owners to provide education and guidance regarding all available treatment options. We strive to develop the most effective and least invasive treatment plan for each patient while always keeping quality of life and comfort at the forefront. By utilizing conventional and holistic treatments together, our goal is to improve outcomes and overall survival rates for our canine and feline patients.
