There are different approaches to cat health information, often referred to as “practice philosophy”.
Traditional practices, also known as allopathic or conventional western medicine, focus on the treatment of symptoms of disorders, diseases and illnesses using pharmaceutical drugs and/or surgery.
In alternative approaches, sometimes called “natural” or “holistic” health care, the focus is on supporting the “healing” abilities of the body to prevent health issues and to promote wellness.
Various holistic philosophies include, homeopathy, chiropractic (both traditional and non-force), acupuncture or acupressure, herbs, natural nutrition and supplementation, and other modalities.
Combining conventional and natural approaches is termed, “integrative”, drawing on the best of both philosophies to serve the healthcare needs of felines.
It is important to choose cat health information that aligns with your own cat care philosophy.
Consider going the extra mile and choosing the approach that best serves your cat’s healthcare needs, even if this means learning about a new philosophy.
Think about your stance on vaccinations, diet, pharmaceuticals and elective surgery when choosing the cat health information that best needs your feline’s care needs.
