Marc Smith, DVM: So, alternative therapies, they have a very controversial history in veterinary medicine. I don’t care, I don’t give a damn. All I know is that some of them help. Otherwise, I wouldn’t do them.

When treating tumors, I have seen, I have witnessed, and I have done it. Tumors that regressed from treatments that are not considered mainstream. I’ve seen it, I’ve done it.

So, some of the alternative therapy treatments I use, it’s mostly going to be with cancer. Not all of them work. No, they don’t. Not all conventional treatments work.
But, I can tell you this, using conventional alongside alternatives is the best, by far. It’s not even close, it’s better. You get better results. It’s less harmful to the animal. And ultimately, it costs less.

So, if you’re interested in some of the alternative treatments we provide, then give us a call at 615-750-2248.

Marc Smith DVM of Natchez Trace Veterinary Services in Nashville & Franklin TN:

“So people ask me all the time: Hey Marc, why do you do all this alternative treatment? I mean, why do you do acupuncture on pets? Does it help?

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m Dr. Marc Smith, I’m the veterinarian at Natchez Trace Veterinary Services.

You see, I started practicing in 1998 and at that time I just did regular old veterinary medicine. I did the same things that everybody else does.

About 10 years ago, I started wondering: Are all these treatments, you know, is that all I’ve got to offer people?

Well I found out that there is a better way, and that way is to combine what I knew, Western Traditional Science, with all these alternative treatments because it’s better. Otherwise, I wouldn’t do it.

So if you need help with your pet of you have questions about all these alternative treatments or eastern treatments, then call us at 615-790-8100 and learn how we can help your pet.”

Marc Smith, DVM of Natchez Trace Veterinary Services in Nashville & Franklin TN:

If you want to know about this concept of holistic veterinary medicine and really what it means to me, let me give you an idea. In conventional medicine, typically we look at just the symptoms of the disease, and is your dog itching, or is your cat itching.

Is your cat throwing up hairballs? Then in holistic veterinary medicine, what we do is we look at a bunch of different factors that can play a role in the way your pets exhibit disease.

For instance, if you have a kitty cat that all of a sudden starts peeing all over the house, did something change in the environment? Did you bring in a new cat? Did you change the diet? Is there family situation dynamics that are changing that are impacting your kitty cat? That’s kind of a holistic view of veterinary medicine and pets.

That’s exactly what we do here at Natchez Trace Veterinary Services. Now, the term “holistic”, whatever, it doesn’t matter. It’s “are you trying to expand to get better, to deliver more to the owner, you, and to the pet?”

That’s what we do. If you’re interested in what we do, then give us a call at 615-750-2248.
