Alternative Therapy

For many pet parents, having the option to choose alternative therapy for their animal family members is a huge benefit. These techniques combine ancient methodology with modern technology for natural healing and enhanced wellness. At Stone Cottage Veterinary Hospital, we’re pleased to offer a number of these integrative treatment options to help you better care for your four-legged friend.

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathy is a holistic therapy option that is based on the theory that the same substances which cause illness in the body, when used properly, can also counteract those same symptoms. The word homeopathy literally means “to treat with a similar disease”. Homeopathic medicine uses natural ingredients to help strengthen the body’s ability to fight off illness and restore a sense of balance throughout. It is especially effective in managing chronic medical conditions to improve the patient’s overall quality of life.

Our holistic medicine options are typically used in conjunction with our traditional Western medical services, although they can be used as standalone treatments in certain cases. Your loved one’s individual situation will be carefully considered when we are developing our treatment recommendation.
