As humans, we sometimes forget (or ignore) the fact that animals have emotions and moods just like we do. Each animal has his or her own personality and temperament. They react to people, animals, environment, and situations with a diverse range of emotions. These include joy, affection, pain, anger, fear, jealousy, depression, grief, and shame.
Animals undergo stress in their daily lives, also. A few examples include visitors to the house, trips to the vet or groomer, new additions to the family, or being left at home when everyone goes to work or school.
An animal’s behavior may be an indication that they are experiencing difficulty with their surroundings or a physical illness. Their behavior may be self-destructive, fearful or aggressive.
Treatment often includes tranquilizers or anti-depressants or the emotional state and behavior are ignored or punished.
Our philosophy of complete care includes addressing the emotional and mental needs of your animal, not just the physical needs. We offer many natural solutions to help with your animal’s general disposition, moods, and emotions naturally. Remember that the mental and emotional state in animals (& people) can also lead to physical sickness and disease. Sometimes a pet’s emotional issue is so intense that medication is necessary to help. We can help with that option too.
Holistic therapies for emotional balancing include craniosacral adjustments, bicom therapy and nutritional supplements and herbs.
These holistic treatments can be very helpful in pets with behavioral or emotional issues and may be able to replace the more conventional treatments in mild or early cases.
"I can't thank Countrycare Animal Complex enough! Our rat terrier Millie is only about 8 years old and recently had an accident which left her paralyzed for about 45 minutes and then she was able to walk. We took her to a vet in the area and were told that she would would need surgery that would cost at least $2,000 OR she could hurt herself again and then we would have to put her down. After a VERY emotional weekend and week I finally called Countrycare Animal Complex. I'm SO glad that I did. They gave us hope that Millie will be back to normal soon! In 1 treatment of Bicom I noticed a difference, she wanted to play and was running around like she did when we got here 5 years ago! We can't wait to see how she will do with more treatments and will certainly send more people your way! Thank you Dr. Strickfaden for your patience and knowledge! Also the staff is amazing! Great on the phone and even better in person!"
