Integrative and holistic care
Tired of the same old medication route? Going to the veterinarian looking for answers and leaving with the same medication over and over? Prefer a more natural approach to your pet’s health and wellness? Here at PAZ we are lucky to have three amazing integrative veterinarians: Dr. Nicholas Vaughan, Dr. Adam Lassin, and Dr. Laurie Johnson. They are well versed in both western and eastern medicine modalities.
Unfamiliar with the term integrative? Integrative medicine is a holistic approach to treating the whole patient and may include a combination of conventional (western) and complementary therapy to attain the best patient outcome. Our goal is to heal patients as naturally as possible using conventional options if needed while supporting the patient during the healing process.
We apply Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) to treat the patient. TCVM employs herbal medicine, acupuncture, and food therapy to target the imbalances. Cold laser treatment can also be utilized with a TCVM approach. Treating the imbalance often involves treating the “branches” until the “roots” of the problem are exposed and healed. That being said, positive changes and improvements may take more time than conventional treatments.
