What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is an alternative therapy treatment of disease that avoids the use of drugs and surgery. Naturopathy relies on the use of natural agents, such as water, air, and herbs, and physical treatments, like electrotherapy and tissue manipulation, to promote healing and alleviate unpleasant side effects or pain your pet may be feeling. This veterinary field also focuses on creating a balance between your pet’s diet, exercise, and nutrition to benefit their quality of life.

How Naturopathy Works

Naturopathy is considered an alternative therapy and can be covered under specific accident-illness insurance plans. Naturopathy can be a great way to alleviate side effects and benefit your pet’s quality of life while they receive treatment for an illness or injury. When shopping for pet insurance, consider whether or not naturopathy is something you’d want coverage for so that you can take a closer look at policies that offer it.
