The process of therapies utilized at our hospital include a broad spectrum of 'medical alternatives' and those medical and surgical 'allopathic' procedures you would expect to find at most Veterinary Hospitals.
Alternatives are those forms of therapeutic assistance which fall outside of strict allopathics, for cases (perhaps like yours) which have either not responded to traditional medical care, and for those clients who wish to 'explore' alternative possibilities. Most of our clients wishing to explore other alternatives are specifically interested in avoiding 'iatrogenic', drug induced, secondary medical problems. Many of our clients present to us patients who have already failed to respond to other therapies and/or are chronically afflicted with a broad range of medical problems.
We are specifically interested in helping both our clients and our patients in a manner ecologically and respectfully compatible:
- We wish to observe obvious changes for the better.
- We seek to meet economic realities which match 'ability' to pay
- We want to formulate criteria of therapy which is found in both professional and public media
Our goal is to achieve clear improvements in 'Quality of Life' for both our clients (being a caretaker can be hard, demanding and frustrating) and our patients. We understand that bonding is a critical factor affecting us all. We also wish to have open lines of communication with our clients because you, the client, provide feedback essential to sorting through 'what works' and 'what does not work' for both you and your 'critter'.
Communication means getting to know one another and developing a confidence that we are all LISTENING and HEARING in a respectful manner. Our Staff is specifically trained and experienced in taking patient progress reports, knowledgeable in translating the 'medical alternative lingo' into terms you can understand, and so on. Sometimes I cannot get to the phone to speak to each of you personally, so my confidence resides in our Staff. Each of whom is sensitive and wants our patients to 'get better' just as much as you and I. We WANT clear and concise feedback about our patients progress.
Our Rule: If a specific regimen of therapy does not work, do something different.
We Want Changes (for the better)!
