Traditional Veterinary Medicine

Traditional Veterinary Medicine provides information on ancient methods of preventing and treating diseases of animals before the advent of modern medicine. Herbal medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic, and nutritional therapy are more widely accepted in the veterinary community as valid treatment methods than other alternative treatment options. Use of herbs or herbal therapy is usually continued for weeks to months by adding powders or tablets to the dog/cat food and is changed according to the needs of the animal. Chiropractic therapy is mainly used for musculoskeletal pain in veterinary medicine.
