Acupuncture, Herbal, and Chiropractic Medicine

Veterinary Acupuncture, Herbal, and Chiropractic treatments provide additional means of diagnosis and treatment options to help your pet’s body systems regain their natural balance. These holistic therapies treat the body as a whole rather than treating it symptomatically. Treatments are often done in one-week intervals in the initial stages of treatment, although intervals may vary from patient to patient.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of needles into specific points in the body to cause the desired healing effects. Depending on the diagnosis and stage of treatment, herbal supplements may be prescribed in addition to acupuncture. Acupuncture and herbal therapeutic treatments can be helpful for managing:

  • Respiratory problems such as sinus infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, and asthma
  • Chronic urinary tract infections or kidney disease
  • Intestinal diseases, such as constipation, diarrhea, vomiting orinflammatory bowel disease
  • Neurologic conditions, such as seizures, or vestibular syndrome

Veterinary Chiropractic care is a manual therapy, which can be used to improve many health issues. Joints are carefully manipulated to restore correct alignment, which is believed to improve nerve function throughout the body. Misalignments may present as limping, behavior changes, and/or pain. Chiropractic care can be helpful for the treatment of:

  •  Stiffness due to arthritis
  •  Disc problems, hip dysplasia, or joint injuries
  •  Muscle pain or spasms
