Alternative Therapies

Massage therapy

Medical massage is a form of therapy in which soft tissues of the body are manipulated to simulate adaptation in the musculoskeletal system in patients with arthritis, hip dysplasia, or other skeletal

abnormalities. Massage is often used in conjunction with acupuncture, or can be used alone as some animals may not tolerate needles. Relaxing overused muscles and relieving trigger points enhances your animals’ wellness by improving their circulation and joint movement, reducing pain, and promoting relaxation.

Low-level pet laser therapy

Laser therapy uses light energy to promote and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. During emission, light energy penetrates into tissues to repair damaged cells which improves healing and aids in the release of anti-inflammatory agents made by the body, which , in turn, decreases pain from acute and chronic conditions. Our Class IV Cold Laser is the most powerful therapeutic laser available. Increased power allows the non-invasive laser beam to penetrate deeper into tissues. Laser therapy can be used over joints, skin, and muscles, and is used in conjunction with acupuncture and/or massage for musculoskeletal disorders and wound healing.
