Ten thousand years ago when humans first began domesticating animals, they fell sick in detention and also due to the ailments of old age. In order to heal them, animals were treated using natural herbs. Until quite recently, herbal medicine had been in practice to treat everything from gut disorders to itchy skin and ear infections.
In many ways, holistic medicine mirrors the effect of many modern drugs except for the fact that they bear none of the toxic side effects.
Holistic medicine is defined as healing characterized by treating the whole person instead of just the symptoms of the disease. Treatment from a holistic point of view implements treatments by addressing the whole body instead of a specific spot. It focuses on maintain your, or in this case, your pet’s wellbeing by implementing healthy lifestyle choices. Holistic medicine focuses on the mental, physical, and environmental aspects of the patient so they can therefore be given a more customized treatment.
