Holistic Pet Care: Veterinary Treatments to Enhance Health “It does not matter whether medicine be old or new, so long as it brings about a cure. It matters not whether theories be eastern or western, so long as they prove to be true.” ~ Jen Hsou Lin, DVM/PhD Our Integrative and Holistic Medicine Department Acacia Animal Health Center is pleased to offer patients and pet owners the extraordinary services of our Integrative and Holistic Medicine Department, lead by Dr. Carmine Bausone. While traditional veterinary medicine provides necessary treatment modalities, alternative treatments enhance the body’s ability to heal and offer relief from chronic, debilitating pain without the use of conventional pharmaceuticals. It is Dr. Bausone’s passion to combine the best that Western veterinary medicine has to offer with the most effective treatments Eastern or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) can provide. Dr. Bausone has trained extensively in holistic therapies and is certified in veterinary acupuncture. Our team also includes Dr. Amy Lockwood, trained in veterinary acupuncture; Dr. John Harrison, a human chiropractor certified in Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation; Healther Elysium, RVT and homeopathic practitioner; and Rainy Aron, RVT and physical rehabilitator.
