Value of Holistic Medicine for Pets
All pets are individuals and respond in different ways to different types of treatment—and these days more and more pet owners are seeking alternative and complementary treatments as well as standard ones.
Dr. Murphy’s philosophy is that we always look for the treatment that is most effective, with the least side-effects for each pet. So we are happy to be able to provide such a wide variety of veterinary services that include holistic pet care options.
When your puppy reaches six months of age, our vet strongly recommends spaying or neutering your pet.
Spay and neuter not only reduces the unwanted animal population, but also supports your dog’s long term health by reducing the risk for certain cancers and chronic illnesses. Additionally, spay and neuter can help control unwanted behaviors in dogs, including some types of aggression.
Dog grooming, including bathing and brushing, is an important part of at-home wellness dog care.
If your dog has a long coat, frequent brushing will help prevent matted fur and tangles. If your pet is anxious about bathing or brushing, professional dog grooming services can help your dog relax and safely complete basic grooming tasks without risking your dog’s safety.
Our veterinarian also recommends brushing your dog’s teeth at least once per week. Brushing your dog’s teeth will not only keep unpleasant doggy breath under control, but also help prevent gum disease, tooth loss and oral bacterial infections.
