What is a Holistic Veterinarian? How have we been trained? How do you find us? Not all holistic veterinarians are the same. This is quite an umbrella term! Holistic is a mindset. Most of us define it as a feeling. We believe that as a doctor, we need to consider the mind, body and spirit of our patient. We do not believe that it is adequate to diagnose disease and treat the disease with a drug. We need to manage the entire patient and even that patient’s environment.
