The mind-body connection is fundamental to Dr. Schwartz’s practice and she always considers the possibility of an underlying medical problem in her evaluation of misbehaving pets. Psychoactive medication is used as a complement to the patient’s treatment plan only if it is appropriate and necessary for the patient’s well-being. With over twenty years in veterinary behavior medicine, Dr. Schwartz is comfortable using both psychoactive conventional and herbal medications.
