The Acuvet Clinic of Dr Barry Hindmarch offers alternative treatment options to your pet. Accupuncture, homoeopathy and Chinese herbal medicine may offer an alternative treatment approach to conventional medicine or in addition to conventional medicine for a holistic treatment approach.
At a time when high-technology medicine is pushing back barriers in diagnosing and treating disease, natural medicine is also enjoying a remarkable renaissance. The Acuvet clinic aims to provide an integrated, holistic approach to animal health care. As such it sees itself as complementary to general veterinary practice and the other, highly specialised clinics within Cape Animal Medical Centre. Complementary therapies aim to mobilise self-healing processes to restore the harmonious working of the physical and biochemical elements of the body and mind.
The Acuvet Clinic was founded in August 1999. It was one of the first veterinary clinics within South Africa to offer a referral service for holistic therapies.
