Alternative Veterinary Therapy
Acupuncture is an ancient medical therapy that is performed by placing sterile needles in specific points on the body. The original theories of Traditional Chinese medicine believed that certain points on the body regulated flow of “Chi” (energy). Medical acupuncture uses current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology of these specific acupuncture points.
Acupuncture is used to treat; Musculoskeletal conditions (arthritis, soft tissue injury), neurologic disease (disk disease, degenerative myelopathy), post-operative pain management, skin disorders (acral lick granuloma), KCS (dry eye) and urinary dysfunction to name a few.
Laser Therapy is an FDA-cleared modality that reduces inflammation and that results in pain reduction. Laser Therapy is effective in treating acute pain, chronic conditions, and post-operative pain.
Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless and fast. Treatments to deeper tissues are administered in 5 to 10 minutes. Typically, even chronic patients exhibit improvement after 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Laser therapy utilizes the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. Despite short treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment.
