Chiropractor for Dogs, Acupuncture, Natural & Alternative Therapies
Alternative therapies can treat a number of ailments in a natural way. They can be used alone or with conventional medicines to help assist in the healing process, bring comfort and improve your pet’s overall quality of life.
Chiropractic Care for dogs and cats
Focuses on the vertebral column and uses the body’s own healing abilities and the relationship between the spine and the nervous system to restore and maintain good health.
Canine or Feline Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine therapy in which thin needles are inserted into specific points of the body. Acupuncture works by activating nerve fibers locally and sends signals to the spinal cord and the brain through neurotransmitters. They also affect local nerve fibers, blood vessels, and lymphatics. Points are carefully selected to treat individual pets based on their presenting patterns. Acupuncture aims to treat the whole body and promote natural healing.
Commonly used to treat painful conditions, acupuncture can also treat many different diseases, especially chronic conditions including:
- Soft tissue (muscle or ligament) injury
- Neurologic injury or disease
- Pre- and post-surgery pain control
- Skin disease
- Heart disease
- Kidney disease
- Liver disease
- Inflammatory diseases
- Immune-mediated diseases
Massage Therapy for dogs and cats
