Dietary Therapy

“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food”, this statement is often attributed to Hippocrates and still rings true today.

Our planet, our emotions and our bodies are under a great amount of stress in these modern times. A highly nutritious diet is more important now than ever. The use of food therapeutically can restore our animal’s system to a balanced healthy natural state. Dietary therapy consists of analyzing your pets diet and making changes based on the unique needs or problems experienced. Using a combination of Chinese energetics, western nutrition and science, dietary therapy helps maintain health in your companion.  No one diet is best for all pets and all stages of their life. We will discuss the benefits of prepared diets, raw diets, and home-cooked diets. Dietary therapy can be used in conjunction with other therapies such as veterinary acupuncture, to treat nearly all conditions such as allergies, gastrointestinal imbalances, kidney disease and cancer to name a few. The doctors at CAWC are well trained in the principles of food therapy.  After a complete consultation and discussion with our doctors, we can tailor a nutritional program to best suit you and your pets needs.
