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 your pet 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 a treatment option for terminally ill pets. These natural approaches are available at Bassler Veterinary Hospital.
