Holistic care is the treatment of the whole pet, considering nutrition, environment, genetics, behaviour and medical history. Holistic thinking is centered on love, empathy, respect and looking at an animal as an individual.

Chiropractic care for pets involves undergoing spinal manipulation or manual therapy to move misplaced vertebrae in the spine (vertebral subluxations) back into their normal position to release pressure on the surrounding nerve tissue. This relieves pain and enables the body to heal itself naturally.Learn More
Our pet’s microbiome is a mini ecosystem located in the digestive tract, made up of microbes and other microorganisms including both desirable and undesirable bacteria unique to each pet.

Holistic life stage consultations
We believe prevention is better than cure, to prevent disease we need to make educated decisions about our pet’s health care from the moment we get them as a puppy or kitten through their adult life. We need to make choices regarding diet, immunisation, training, neutering, supplements and more. Many pet parents often don’t realise they have a choice for example vaccination vs titre test or a worming tablet vs faecal egg count. We are here to give you knowledge and choice. We have created three holistic life stage consultations for young, adult and senior pets!
Faecal Egg Count
A Faecal Egg Count or FEC counts the number of worm eggs in your pet’s faeces. The results are presented as ‘eggs per gram’ (epg) of faeces. The number of eggs is an indication of the number of adult worms in the gut of your dog or cat. Lungworm screens are slightly different as they look for live larvae in the faeces.
