Lately the field of veterinarian medicine has come under intense scrutiny by pet owners who feel their beloved pets aren't being treated properly. From numerous vaccines, low grade pet food and flea and tick sprays that include harmful toxins the warning has been sounded. For a long time many pet owners assumed annual vaccines, occasional flea and tick baths and generic pet food would be enough to endure a happy and healthy life. Unfortunately as more information surfaces it is becoming apparent that the advancement in pesticides and vaccines are actually causing more harm to dogs and cats than pet owners ever knew.
Because of the concern many pet owners have for their furry friends a new approach is being taken to pet care that involves natural vets providing homeopathic care and holistic pet remedies over vaccines and sprays. Plenty of pet owners have asked the simple question: would I do this to myself or my child and come up with a resounding NO. Vaccinating a pet multiple times each year actually weakens the animal's immune system and can lead to a debilitating illness called "vaccinosis", which is the gradual weakening of a pet's ability to fight off viruses naturally.
Natural vets are trained professionals in the veterinarian field who are also concerned about the path pet treatment is going. Tired of seeing weakened pets struggle to get up on four legs or suffer extreme physical breakdowns from toxins in flea and tick sprays and vaccines this group of holistic vets are looking at natural and homeopathic remedies to help better treat dogs, cats and horses for a wide variety of ailments. The dogma of vaccines, sprays and pills is being questioned by natural vets who view this cycle as a lackadaisical way of caring for pets.
Today more pet owners are turning to natural and holistic vet treatments out of concern for the overall health and well being of their pet. Though still a minority compared to the standard veterinarian practices natural vets are finding plenty of pet owners who agree that chemical can't solve everything and that in many cases a natural, homeopathic approach to treating an illness may be the better decision in the long run.
