“Holistic” (or integrative) veterinary medicine is the combined use of conventional and alternative (or complementary) medicine. It differs from conventional veterinary medicine in that it takes a more natural and common sense approach to your pet’s healthcare. It acknowledges the capacity of the body to heal on its own if we remove the impediments to healing. Through proper nutrition, regular daily care, avoidance of chemical toxins, and minimization of emotional stress the body’s own immune system becomes strengthened, enabling the body to heal itself and be fortified against possible disease. It avoids the overuse or common misuse of many drugs, antibiotics, steroids, artificial chemicals, vaccinations, and other treatments.
We treat each pet patient as an individual, prescribing only what he or she needs. Our holistic veterinarians are trained in many different modalities and treat mostly with physical treatments, proper diet, natural whole-food and herbal dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, formulas from the ancient Chinese, Ayurvedic and Western herbal traditions, Bach Flower emotional remedies, essential oils and homeopathic remedies. Physical treatments include VOM chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture therapy, ozone therapy, cold laser therapy (LLLT), and Reiki, among other treatments. We recommend regular check-ups and blood tests to help us keep your pet on track and in balance.
We see dogs, cats, small mammals, birds and reptiles at our clinic and are available for house calls as well. In Northern New Jersey, we do Equine barn calls for acupuncture, chiropractic and cold laser therapy.

They are always caring and professional here. I had a dog that several vets told me would never walk again. With natural meds, acupuncture and treatment she walked again.
Took my kitten in for a spay. The people in this place were so polite and nice. Real animal lovers. I was very happy that they were able to answer all my questions. They new this was my first time doing this and they handled me with care. More importantly, they handled my cat with care.
At first, I knew nothing about “holistic” services. I was worried because neuters and spays are actual surgeries. I didn’t want them putting lavender on my cat and calling it a day. They don’t do that. It’s actually very conventional. Plus, they’re prices are fair. I didn’t feel I overpaid or anything like that.
We recently took my 10 year old Persian cat to see Dr. Mini. He was very ill, drooling constantly, lethargic, and in my eyes appeared to be at the end of his life cycle. Dr. Mini was accommodating in getting us seen quickly and empathetic to our situation. She ran all the necessary tests and sent Max home with an anti-biotic and a shot to help him with his nausea. Max is doing well just a few days later, acting like his old self. We couldn’t be happier with our experience all around. To Dr. Mini, and the entire staff at Holistic Pet Care, thank you for saving our little guys life, it means the world to us.

I love Dr. B's progressive, holistic approach for my dogs. He did a thorough exam for each dog, and treated them kindly. I highly recommend bringing your pets here.
