Center

Why alternative ?
In many cases, the treatment provided by Centrum Alternatieve Diergeneeskunde is sufficient to deal with the disease in question. Of course, there are other cases in which the additional use of regular treatment and/or medicines is necessary. Conventional treatment can be sought from your regular vet and can vary from taking X-rays to prescribing a course of antibiotics.

 

What is being treated?
> Chronic complaints such as diarrhea and vomiting, itching, allergies and back problems.
> Urination problems in tomcats, asthma, chronic colds, lack of resistance.
> Acute complaints such as hernia of the spine, problems with the muscles and joints.
> Behavioral problems.

Team
Qualified veterinarian, Caspar Broekman, works together with his team exclusively with non-regular medicines such as homeopathy, flower remedies and gemmo therapy. “Animals react extremely well to this natural way of healing. This was the main reason for me to start using alternative medicine. I also find that it suits me better as a person and I’m convinced that this method is also better for the well-being of the animals”.

Broekman has been working as a regular veterinarian since 1997 and has been using alternative methods for diagnosis and treatment since 2002.

Since 2018 we changed our name to Centrum Alternatieve Diergeneeskunde. Why? Because we are truly a centrum with constant evaluation of our patients between the osteopathy, homeopathy, orthomuleculair therapy, acupuncture en regulair veterinary medicine.
