Tips on Dangers of Holistic Medicine for Cats

The past several years has seen the growing popularity of the "holistic" health movement. That trend is growing in the world of veterinary care as well. Many cat owners seek to complement or even replace traditional medical therapy with holistic treatments.

Holistic medicine, including alternatives such as herbal/organic supplements, aromatherapy, acupuncture, chiropractic and massage, are believed to support the body's ability to heal itself. In some cases, the implementation of these practices may improve your pet's condition. However, the same caution must be taken when using these alternatives as you would with conventional medicine. When used inappropriately, serious illness can result.

Check with your veterinarian before beginning any "holistic" treatment on your cat.
