Dr. Becker’s goal with every patient is to identify and remove lifestyle obstacles before disease occurs. Dr. Becker’s proactive approach takes into account genetics, nutrition, prior illness, environmental stressors and your pet’s unique disease patterns to help identify and reduce health risks and in turn, disease potential.
By monitoring your pet’s organ systems, immune status, musculoskeletal health, dynamic nutritional requirements and detoxification mechanisms, Dr. Becker’s proactive approach can reduce overall disease potential and identify subtle changes in your pet’s overall wellbeing, sooner rather than later.
