I LOVE my holistic vet. I actually take my geriatric guy to 2 clinics: the conventional feline-only vet that he's been going to since he was a kitten; and in the last few years, a holistic vet for osteopathy, acupuncture, homeopathy and TCM. They both have their advantages, but what's great about the holistic vet is that they still have access to all the conventional diagnostic and treatment options. If you can find a holistic vet that does osteopathy and/or acupuncture, your boy kitty might really benefit from a few sessions. Good idea to get a thorough physical exam first though, maybe even x-rays.
