What is Integrated Medicine?

Baby is our twelve year-old terrier mix. Last May, he tore a ligament in his knee. For two weeks I used acupuncture, chiropractic, and a therapeutic laser to try to get his knee to heal. When there was no improvement and he was still carrying the leg after three weeks, we took him to a surgeon who repaired the knee surgically. Within several weeks he was putting weight on the leg. Today you can barely see a limp.

Natural Solutions, formerly Des Moines Veterinary Acupuncture, offers a variety of holistic treatments including acupuncture, veterinary spinal manipulation therapy and homeopathy to maintain your pet's health and well-being.

A holistic approach addresses health concerns by looking at a patient in his or her entirety, as a physical, emotional and spiritual being. It focuses on lifestyle as a means of treatment and prevention of disease. It believes that what an individual eats, the environmental toxins he or she encounters and life’s emotional issues impact health maintenance and disease development.

Treatment goals aim to reduce or eliminate symptoms and prevent future disease without side effects. As a holistic veterinarian, I believe I’m part of a team that includes you, your family and your pet. We share a common goal of adding years to your pet’s life and life to your pet’s years.
