Doylestown Veterinary Hospital Expands with Holistic Pet Care

maribelle-feeling-betterDoylestown Veterinary Hospital announces it is broadening the services provided by the practice to include Holistic Pet Care. Pet owners interested in holistic programs for the care of their pets now have a veterinary practice in the Central Bucks area that offers a variety of traditional and holistic options.

“Doylestown Veterinary Hospital has been integrating holistic modalities like acupuncture and laser therapy with our conventional veterinary practice for some time, and we are excited to be expanding those options even further,” says Dr. Laura Weis, who owns the hospital with her husband, Dr. Randy Weis. “The veterinary hospital has been dedicated to the health of pets since 1972, with a tradition of offering compassionate care through modern medicine and technology.”

Weis’s practice provides homeopathy and nutritional counseling. She explains, “The objective of homeopathy is to trigger the body’s natural defenses so with each step in making the pet healthier, the body gains a greater ability to heal. It’s a gentle approach to wellness that lasts throughout the lifetime of your pet.” The benefits of a homeopathic approach to pet care include an overall increase in health, longer lasting results with fewer in-between treatments, no toxic side effects and reduced healthcare costs over the life of the pet.

On staff, Ddoylestownveterinaryhospitalrs. Ashlea Erk and David MacDonald are certified veterinary acupuncturists. MacDonald also has years of experience working with herbal therapies. They both agree that a fully integrative approach to pet health care enhances patient comfort and offers unique solutions to a variety of medical conditions.

“Offering conventional medicine and holistic therapies allows the medical team to provide highly individualized pet care,” MacDonald explains. “We can work with the pets and their caregivers to choose therapies that accomplish the proper balance for a healthy life or a unique solution to more effective treatment of a chronic illness.”

Location: 380 N. Shady Retreat Rd., Doylestown. For more information or to schedule an appointment for either their conventional or holistic services, call 215-345-6000 or visit DoylestownVeterinaryHospital.com.
