Is an approach to care which uses an appropriate combination of veterinary medicine and holistic medicine to treat a medical condition.
Dr. Weidenkopf's experience in both equine veterinary medicine and complementary medicine will allow her to tailor an effective and cost efficient care plan for your horse. For example, a horse with arthritis would have treatment options that include oral joint supplements, injectable joint supplements, joint injections, oral non-steroidal medications, chiropractic and acupuncture, proper exercise plans, possible shoeing changes and proper dental maintenance.
All of these treatment options would not be necessary in every case. An experienced holistic veterinarian has the knowledge to choose and provide the appropriate treatments for each individual case.
