Consumers and pet owners alike have embraced holistic medicine as an alternative to, or supplement for, traditional medical approaches. On Sunday, Aug. 19 at the Village Animal Clinicin Ardsley, NY, veterinarian Lisa J. Donato, DVM, CVA, FAAVA, CVT, CVH, CAC, will speak to pet parents about how holistic therapies can be highly effective in preventing and treating a wide range of ailments. She will demonstrate acupuncture, chiropractic and other alternative approaches on a dog patient during the seminar.
As a holistic veterinarian, Dr. Donato provides acupuncture, chiropractic and traditional Chinese veterinary medicine, including herbal treatments, to the patients of Village Animal Clinic. Her philosophy is to incorporate the best of Western and Eastern veterinary medicine in order to provide the finest health care possible to her patients.
“At Village Animal Clinic, we believe that an integrative approach combining the best of natural therapies and conventional medicine can be very effective in improving the quality and length of pets’ lives,” said Village Animal Clinic founder and owner Martin DeAngelis, DVM, ACVS.
Dr. Donato will discuss three leading therapies in holistic veterinary medicine, including:
- Acupuncture – As one of the safest forms of medical treatments for animals, acupuncture can treat ailments ranging from hip dysplasia and chronic degenerative joint disease to respiratory, gastrointestinal, neurological and urinary tract disorders. Performed similarly on humans as animals, the procedure uses the insertion of tiny needles to relieve pain, improve the function of organ systems and strengthen the body’s immune system.
- Chiropractic Services – Gaining in popularity among veterinarians, animal chiropractic is most often used to treat acute injuries and chronic conditions, and has proven to be effective in improving a pet’s joint function, immune system and physical endurance.
- Chinese/Herbal Medicine – Commonly used in conjunction with acupuncture, herbal medicine has been proven to treat epilepsy, rheumatism, chronic urinary infections, skin allergies and type II diabetes. Herbs can also be used to provide pain relief and promote healing and prevent infection in wounds.
The seminar is free to attend and will be held Sunday, Aug. 19 from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. p.m. at Village Animal Clinic, 875 Saw Mill River Road, Ardsley, NY 10502.
