Providing Integrative Medicine

Providing Integrative MedicineAs pet owners ourselves, the veterinarians and staff of Schulhof Animal Hospital truly believe that sharing your home with a pet is an immensely rewarding and satisfying experience. We also understand that the relationship you have developed with your pet is unique and important to you. This is why Schulhof Animal Hospital takes an approach to veterinary medicine that is far broader than the care offered by most other veterinary practices. We also believe that superior medical care is only performed by experienced and highly trained doctors, technicians and support staff. We only hire the best and brightest doctors and staff that are always striving to stay at the forefront of veterinary medicine. In all, Schulhof Animal Hospital is able to provide a standard of care to your pet and level of service to you that go well beyond what you will experience at other veterinary practices.

Schulhof Animal Hospital also recognizes the unique and complementary role that alternative therapies play when used in harmony with traditional western medical practices. Complimentary medicine is designed to stimulate the body's natural healing abilities. It can also complement traditional treatments by enhancing their effectiveness and reducing their side effects. As we develop a treatment plan for your pet, our veterinarians incorporate all of the factors underlying your pet's health, integrating our knowledge of traditional and complementary medical approaches. This means that in addition to thorough wellness exams and the appropriate use of vaccines, we may suggest therapies such as laser therapy, herbal and homeopathic remedies, nutritional approaches, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, and behavioral therapies to more fully meet your pet's health requirements.

The foundation of your pet's health is the thorough practice of preventative care, which includes a complete physical examination at least once each year. A regular checkup is just as important for your pet as it is for you. It provides you and your veterinarian with the opportunity to develop a picture of your pet's overall health as well as to spot potential medical issues before they become serious health concerns. To this end Schulhof provides comprehensive WellCare Services and the continuity of care that you do not get at a big box store. Read more…
