Acupuncture

Veterinary acupuncture has been used for centuries as a way to manage pain and treat a wide variety of ailments in our animal friends. The practice involves the insertion of tiny needles into various acupoints on the body. Each acupoint is tied to a certain interior section of the body, such as organs, muscle groups, joints and the nervous system. When the needles are inserted, it causes a cellular response in the targeted area and triggers the body’s natural pain control and healing mechanisms. Acupuncture is painless and can produce results after just one treatment.

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic medicine has been practice for over 200 years and is used to naturally treat both acute and chronic illnesses. The concept is based on what’s known as the “Law of Similars”, which holds that the symptoms being caused by a certain substance can also be cured by using that same substance when administered in a strategic amount. Homeopathy can be used to treat everything from insect bites and diarrhea to arthritis and diabetes.

If your pet suffers from pain or any other type of medical condition, we may be able to provide the relief he or she deserves through our alternative medicine options. Give us a call today to learn more.
