Numerous new patients come to Animal Health and Hydro when the options they have been offered are unpalatable, and they are seeking another opinion or an alternative solution. At Animal Health and Hydro we are committed to finding a solution which works for both you and your pet. We listen. We are open to hearing your needs.

Our Holistic Approach to veterinary medicine goes beyond offering medication or a treatment protocol to assist with your pets condition. We offer emotional support, guidance on everything from nutrition, to surgical interventions (when necessary) and teach you how to manage your pet at home.

Many medical conditions such as Cushing's Disease; Diabetes Mellitus; Hypothyroidism; Urinary Incontinence and Neurological Conditions such a Intevertebral Disc Disease (IVDD); Degenerative Myelopathy; Fibrocartilaginous Embolism and Polyradiculoneuritis are best treated in a multi-modal manner and treatment may incorporate a combination of herbs, homeopathy, acupuncture, correct diet, and exercise.

Clients have often said that using this approach has given them the "missing link" in their pet's medical care.

If we are unable to offer a treatment modality which is the best course of action for you and your companion, we will refer you to a suitable doctor, surgeon or practitioner to assist with this treatment.
