Dr. Russell believes that healing is best accomplished when there is a tailored, whole animal approach to each problem using whatever tools fit the patient and their guardian.
The veterinarians' job is to help the body heal in a gentle, quick and comprehensive way. The best case is when the regular veterinarian is part of the treatment plan and the care is integrated with the holistic veterinarians' knowledge base.
Dr. Russell is comfortable using acupuncture, herbs, homeopathy, nutrition, and Bach flowers. For the athlete, acupuncture might be all that is needed. For the cancer patient, a completely different plan is used. She believes that modern veterinary medicine has much to offer and often refers to conventional practitioners.
