Today’s topic:
Holistic/Alternative Therapies

What is this?

Holistic or alternative therapy are treatments that aren’t usually considered conventional, western medicine such as acupuncture, laser therapy, massage, hydrotherapy, chiropractic therapy and more. There are plans out there that exclude holistic or alternative therapies for treating conditions in dogs and cats.

How does this affect you?

Veterinarians are now leaning toward a twofold approach when it comes to treatments for dogs and cats. If there are alternative treatments that work better, or are more suited to your specific pet, they believe in utilizing those types of treatments.

For example, acupuncture is becoming increasingly used to help manage the pain for issues like disc disease, arthritis, cancer and trauma. A session of acupuncture can range between $25 and $225, and depending on the condition, can require several sessions.

Which Pet Insurance Providers Do Not Cover Holistic & Alternative Therapies:

  • Nationwide
  • Trupanion
  • Pets Best

Where does PetFirst stand?

PetFirst does reimburse for holistic or alternative therapies such as acupuncture, acupressure, laser therapy, hydrotherapy, chiropractic care and more, as long as it is performed by a licensed veterinarian or clinic and is for a condition that is covered.
