At Hillsdale Animal Hospital, we strive to help your pets achieve and maintain genuinely improved health, rather than temporary relief of symptoms. We try to achieve this goal by maximizing the use of healthy foods, nutritional supplements, and natural medicines, while minimizing the use of conventional pharmaceuticals.
Protocols to achieve our goals center on:
whole fresh foods
truly premium pet foods
nutritional supplementation (vitamins, minerals, etc.)
Minimized use of "toxic" medicines
flea and tick control products
Increased use of natural/alternative therapies
We believe that client education is of paramount importance to helping pets achieve better health. The more knowledgeable clients are about their pets' health (or lack thereof), the more able they are to make informed decisions/choices. This enables us to do our job better. We consider the "healthcare team" to be the staff at our practice, the pet's owner(s), and the pet.
