Holistic - The new old

PetPoint Medical Center and Resort

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine has been successfully applied for thousands of years, and PetPoint blends acupuncture and Chinese herbal remedies with conventional Western medicine.  

Also known as Eastern Medicine, Integrative Care focuses on incorporating natural healing methods and engaging the body’s own healing abilities to work toward better health. The pet’s environment, nutrition, stress factors, and disease pattern are part of the overall assessment. 

At PetPoint our Integrative Care Practitioners are trained in acupuncture, acupressure, herbal medicine, chiropractic, physical therapy, and nutrition. 

Prevention of diseases should be the focus in the patients’ early years, thus necessitating little intervention until older age. In many situations, the veterinarian will primarily choose from conventional (Western) medical procedures, technologies, and products (surgery, diagnostics and drug therapy) and combine these with integrative care techniques to create an optimal synergistic illness prevention or treatment plan. This approach mandates a comprehensive understanding of all the healing modalities and their suitability to the patient and the illness.

Give your pet a “kibble break” at least every Sunday

PetPoint Medical Center and Resort

Naturally fresh food is flavorful and healthy, and your pet will enjoy a break from processed kibble.  

Nutrition is the foundation of good health and therefore the most important component of the health care of your pet. The best diet for your pet is not unlike the best diet for you – it consists of a variety of whole foods, enhanced with vitamins and minerals, and enzymes and supplements.  

Despite thousands of years of domestication, our animal companion’s digestive systems are virtually the same as their ancestors and intended to assimilate raw food most efficiently.  

At PetPoint we are aware of the true nutritional needs of companion animals and are taking a proactive approach to nutrition by recommending the highest quality ingredients with carefully controlled preparation. A thoughtful nutrition plan will help in avoid serious illness caused by poor nutrition and feeding practices. 

At PetPoint’s Bistro RawCoo, we offer a high-quality selection of commercial frozen raw, dehydrated, and freeze-dried food and essential supplements, as well as our own creation of fresh appetizers – daily baked Tapaws at our on-site gourmet kitchen. We also offer cooking classes to help you create delicious healthy meal plans for your companions.
