Natural Approach

At Bassler Veterinary Hospital, our goal is to help your pet live a long and healthy life with you.  We strive to reach our goal through preventive care. Offering good nutrition and exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, and providing a low-stress environment can contribute to good health.  To augment this preventive approach, we discuss vaccine and parasite prevention plans with you, tailored to fit your pet’s lifestyle.  These preventive measures help boost your pet’s own immune system so that he is able to stay healthy naturally.

When your pet isn’t well and needs more help, we try natural approaches whenever possible. Our philosophy is based on current scientific knowledge and modern medical advances. Natural remedies, including probiotics, healthy oils, Class IV laser, and silymarin (from the milk thistle plant), are both safe and effective.  Other natural products, such as Yunnan bai-you and I’m-Yunity, may be used in pets with cancer.  These natural approaches are available at Bassler Veterinary Hospital.

My family and I strongly recommend Dr. Heidi Bassler and her team at Bassler Veterinary Hospital. Above and beyond offering top-notch veterinary and medical skills, I truly felt we had an advocate for the health and well-being of our pet, and our family. Dr. Bassler personally goes the extra mile to care for animals, and comfort and educate their families. Whether for routine check-ups or emergency veterinary care, Bassler Veterinary Hospital is a regional treasure!

We visited Bassler Vet Hospital after our Pomeranian dislocated his hip on the ice. Dr. Bassler and her team had such a caring nature, attention to detail and overall was incredible. They are SO nice and they genuinely care about their patient's well-being. We had used a local Vet for our dog and two cats for a few years, but immediately switched over to Dr. Bassler after just one visit.

Bassler Veterinary Hospital is the best of the best. Word on the street is that if nobody can figure out what is wrong with your dog or cat, then you need to see Dr. Bassler. With this in mind, I brought my dog King to see Dr. Bassler when King was gravely ill and other vets were scratching their heads. Dr. Bassler took a detailed history, performed a thorough exam, and ran some special tests. And just as people said she would, Dr. Bassler diagnosed the problem and put King on the road to recovery. I am so grateful! Dr. Bassler is really friendly and also has a very nice staff. She also responds to my emails, which makes me feel valued and keeps me informed.
