How Do You Treat the “Whole Pet?”

Holistic health services are becoming much more widely used and respected throughout the United States than they’ve ever been. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 30% of adults and 12% of children are now using health care approaches that are considered outside of Western, conventional medicine.

Although we believe that traditional medicine does have it's placed, we understand and embrace the many wonderful benefits that an integrated approach to healing can provide for your pets, especially those that are suffering from serious, chronic illnesses such as cancer.

We start our relationship with your pet by welcoming him into our office as a member of the family. From there, we use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and techniques to clearly determine your pet’s specific pain points if he’s injured. If your pet is exhibiting symptoms of an illness, we get right to work on finding the root cause of his discomfort.

Types of Holistic Treatment We Offer

Once we have a diagnosis, we use our comprehensive set of treatment modalities to bring about relief from pain and symptoms as quickly as possible. Our animal hospital near Houston offers a variety of alternative cancer treatments. The soothing, yet aggressively effective treatments that we offer include:

  • Nutritional Counseling
  • Laser Therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Ozone Therapy

Problems We Treat

We can treat your pet for most types of injury or illness, but one of our main specialties is finding and treating cancer in dogs. We realize that getting an accurate diagnosis in a timely manner is crucial to the successful treatment and healing of your pet. In our experience, using traditional medicine along with a holistic treatment plan offers the best and quickest route to full recovery. We are one of the only vets near Houston that operate in such a holistically-focused focused way. The smiles from our pet owners and the survival rates of the pets that we treat suggest that ours is an approach that truly works.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I’ve been coming here for over 25 years and with over a dozen pups. I’ve moved 4 times and regardless of distance VMDAH is the only choice for me."
    Bob N.
  • "I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Crist and Veterans Memorial Drive Animal Hospital. I have NEVER been to a doctor (especially a veterinarian) who took a full hour to do an exam and history. I was so impressed with the time taken and genuine concern that Dr. Crist had for my kiddo. I am so happy that they provide alternatives to traditional veterinarian medicine like chiropractic, acupuncture and supplements. I highly recommend VMDAH!"
