What are your experiences/thoughts on holistic vets for rats? It says they incorporate holistic techniques while also doing traditional medicine. Would you bring your rat to a holistic vet?
I complete second this because rats can go from being healthy to very sick overnight.Attempting holistic remedies BEFORE treating with real medications seems very risky for rats since their illnesses are usually well developed before we even notice them. If a vet recommends holistic measures WITH antibiotics or other medications then that's fine. I would just not put off the real medications in order to try something holistic first because if that doesn't work it may be too late to treat with medications by the time you realize the holistic approach isn't working.
