Integrative Veterinarian Dr. Katie Kangas DVM, CVA, CVCP joins us today on It's A Dogs Life With Angela Ardolino, only on Cannabis Radio. Dr. Kangas is an integrative veterinarian, which means that she focuses on preventative health and supporting natural healing or wellness through many holistic options in combination with traditional veterinary medicine. Preventative wellness and holistic care options include diet/food choices, nutritional supplements, acupuncture, herbal medicines, homeopathic remedies, essential oils, and more. Conventional medicine (for both animals & people) tends to focus more on the treatment of disease and the symptoms of the disease after the condition or illness presents itself. While this type of health care can have value, it also has limitations. Preventative and integrative veterinary medicine aims to support the animal’s health through diet, nutrition, and lifestyle practices that allow our pets to be more resilient to disease and live better quality lives. In other words, providing our pets with the tools to thrive, rather than to just survive. In Dr. Kangas's opinion, the most balanced health care uses a combination of both conventional and holistic options. This is called Integrative Medicine. It is her goal to empower pet parents to make better choices and take a more active role in promoting health and quality of life for their pets. We talk today about Dr. Katie Kangas, her journey, where she thinks this industry is heading and much more on It's A Dogs Life with Angela Ardolino.
