What is herbal therapy?

veterinary_herbal_therapy-1Herbal therapy is the use herbs for medicinal purposes. Herbs are plants that contain ingredients with active therapeutic properties. These active ingredients may be present in the whole plant or only in a specific part. Other parts of the same plant, or other plants in the same genus, may have no activity or may in fact be toxic.

Why use herbal medicine?

Herbal medicine is a holistic approach to pet healthcare that addresses the patient's physical, emotional, mental, digestive health as well as thee patients diet, their environment and their exercise. Herbal therapy has a perception of being "natural" and organic, and many owners of their pets and family members may already be using herbal supplements and therapy ink their own healthcare. 

Herbal medicine can be used to treat subclinical conditions such as the body's response to stress and fatigue.  Many times practitioners may not always know "what is wrong" , may not have the answers or can only get answers with expensive diagnostic and/or invasive testing.  The practitioner does know the patient is tired, lacks energy, is cold or pale. Herbal medicine can be used in those particular situations, usually without doing harm.

Herbal medicine may be more effective in chronic conditions where conventional medicine has not been helpful, is expensive, or has side effects. 

Herbs have actions that is lacking in conventional medicine such as:

*helping patients respond to the stress of disease

*helping patients respond to age related issues

*help with nutrition

*stimulate the immune system

Herbs may also treat specific organ systems such as the liver, kidneys, or digestive tract.

Testimonial

Client Testimonials

"We have being taking our pets to Fairmount Animal Hospital for over 25 years, and needless to say, we are very pleased with their care. Everyone on the entire staff – Dr. Losito and all the other veterinarians as well as the technicians and receptionists – have always been warm, friendly, professional, knowledgeable and caring. Their larger new building is a top notch state-of-the art animal hospital with a comfortable reception area as well. Their expanded staff and extended hours make appointments more accommodating for us, so our pets can receive care when needed.
Everyone at Fairmount Animal Hospital truly loves animals, and they treat our pets as if they were their own. At each of our visits, they take the time to fully examine them pets, explain procedures and offer advice. They also take note of each of our pet’s unique personalities, so they can best treat each of them in the most effective and least upsetting manner.
Most importantly, we’ve been through difficult times as our pets aged. Everyone on the Fairmount Animal Hospital staff was especially understanding, compassionate and comforting.
In short, we love Fairmount Animal Hospital, and gratefully appreciate having them as our veterinarians. We highly recommend Fairmount Animal Hospital. We know your fur babies will definitely receive excellent care there."

"At first, we weren't sure we'd like Fairmount Animal Hospital. Prior to becoming clients, we'd enjoyed years of personalized attention at a smaller one-vet practice. But when that practice abruptly closed, we were forced to find someone new. Everyone we asked gushed about FHA, noting their expanded hours, compassionate doctors and staff, and focus on continuous improvement of the facility and their offerings. Now we've been taking our fur babies there for several years, and I can say without reservation that FHA lives up to the great reviews. They always find a way to accommodate spur-of-the-moment visits, and it's such a relief that they offer Urgent Care and weekend hours. Bonus: they work well with our pet insurance company, faxing forms to ensure that we are reimbursed as quickly as possible! In sum, Fairmount Animal Hospital treats us with the same care that we lavish on our own four-legged family! We love them."

"My experience at Fairmount animal hospital was wonderful! Dr. Logan was very helpful and knowledgeable. The hospital itself is very clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend anyone with pets to check this place out!"

- Chris H. / Syracuse

"Amazing staff. Super friendly. Beautiful vibe, I loved it. The assistant my cat had before the vet came in was very informational and even though my cat was stressed and scared crapless he still cared for her and was very sweet and gentle. The vet was amazing and my baby girl took a liking to her sweet voice giving her assurance everything will be alright. Thank you so much! Very amazing first impression and we have decided to make this location our only location for our furbaby."
