Holistic veterinary therapies such as acupuncture, herbs and whole food advice
Holistic Vet Care, previously known as Restore Veterinary Acupuncture, provides you with solutions when conventional treatment does not work or has too many side effects. Acupuncture and herbs can help treat a wide range of diseases such as arthritis, neurological issues and gastro-intestinal issues such as IBD and pancreatitis. One other very useful application of acupuncture and herbs is supporting cancer treatment.
One of the key benefits of acupuncture and herbs is that they are very safe and most of the “side effects” are positive ones. Many herbs for example protect the liver and the kidneys when aggressive medications are used, such as chemotherapy.

About Holistic Vet Care
What is an acupuncture treatment like?
Acupuncture works in the same way as in people and is just as effective. Treatment is safe and involves placing fine needles in strategic points on the body. Placing the needles is gentle and pain free. In fact, pets often feel so relaxed they fall asleep during treatments. Acupuncture is very safe, when carried out by an appropriately trained acupuncture vet.
Treatment normally takes about one hour. This ensures that there is enough time to assess the patients needs before the treatment, as well as checking the treatment response.
