Holistic care options
What is Holistic Veterinary Medicine?
Holistic medicine, by its very nature, is humane to the core. The techniques used in holistic medicine are gentle, minimally invasive, and incorporate patient well-being and stress reduction. Holistic thinking is centered on love, empathy, and respect.
In treating an animal, our team will determine the best combination of both conventional and alternative (or complementary) therapies for a given animal. This mixture of healing arts and skills is as natural as life itself. The essence of the word “holistic” means taking in the whole picture of the patient—the environment, the disease pattern, the relationship of pet with owner—and developing a treatment protocol using a wide range of therapies for healing the patient. The holistic practitioner is interested not only in a medical history, but the genetics, nutrition, environment, family relationships, stress levels, and other factors.
Through a series of observations and appropriate testing, our goal becomes finding the true source of the condition. It’s at this point the least invasive, least expensive, and least harmful path to cure is selected.
In many acute situations, treatment may involve aspects of surgery and drug therapy from conventional Western technology, along with alternative techniques to provide a complementary whole. This form of treatment has great value for severe trauma and certain infections.
Once the symptoms have been treated, the task is not complete until the underlying disease patterns have been redirected. The patient, as well as the client, will be guided to a new level of health. The wholeness inherent in the scope of holistic veterinary medicine nurtures all aspects of an animal’s well being, resulting in lasting physical, mental, and emotional health.

We love Dr. Miller - she is diligent and caring!
She always follows up like she says she will, and the staff is amazing. Everyone there takes the time to explain everything to you and your family and give you every option available for your pet's care.
We drive about an hour to have our fur babies seen by her. It's worth every mile drove to have our animals feel safe. Gizmo always roams around the exam room with 0 fear!

The service at Creature Comforts has always been excellent. We've taken our 3 Goldy's and our 2 cats here for years.
Everyone here is very accommodating and friendly.
Wouldn't think of ever changing vets.
