Holistic Services

Holistic veterinary medicine is an approach that focuses on treating the whole animal—mind, body, and spirit—rather than just the symptoms or specific ailments. It integrates conventional veterinary practices with complementary and alternative therapies to promote overall health and well-being.

Dr. Rachelson is our dedicated veterinarian at VIDA Vet Denver who specializes in holistic veterinary medicine. Dr. Rachelson brings a unique approach to pet care, blending traditional veterinary practices with holistic therapies to ensure comprehensive and personalized treatment for your furry companions.

With a deep passion for holistic pet health, Dr. Rachelson believes in addressing the complete well-being of animals, considering not only their physical health but also their emotional and mental aspects.

Holistic veterinary services encompass a range of therapies and practices, including:

  1. Acupuncture: This involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate nerve endings, muscles, and connective tissues. It’s used to alleviate pain, promote healing, and address various health issues.
  2. Nutritional Therapy: Providing tailored diets or supplements to optimize an animal’s nutrition and address specific health concerns. This can involve natural or specialized diets, and it may include supplements like vitamins, minerals, or probiotics.
  3. Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation: Including exercises, massage, hydrotherapy, and other non-invasive techniques to improve mobility, strength, and recovery after injuries or surgeries.
  4. Laser Therapy: This non-invasive treatment can help accelerate healing by increasing blood flow to the affected area, reducing inflammation, and promoting cellular repair. It’s commonly used to manage pain associated with arthritis, injuries, post-surgical recovery, and various musculoskeletal conditions in pets.
