Annapolis Veterinary Holistic Healthcare
Our holistic veterinarians' goal is to teach our clients how to maintain health in their pets and to determine the best holistic method to stimulate the body to heal itself when problems occur.
In the holistic paradigm of healing, practitioners believe that the individual is designed to heal themselves and protect themselves from disease. It is believed that disease only establishes itself when the body is out of balance or for other external factors, unable to protect and/or heal it self.
