Many pet parents appreciate having the option to choose alternative therapy for their furry family members. At Santaluz Animal Care, we’re pleased to offer a number of these integrative treatment options.
Acupuncture works under the theory that when the body’s natural energy source becomes disrupted, sickness and pain can occur. Special acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points along the body to promote healing and reduce pain. Veterinary acupuncture can be used to treat anything from arthritis to respiratory problems and just about everything in between. It can also be used to improve the immune system and create better balance.
Laser therapy leverages the power of light to naturally reduce pain and speed healing. We can use laser therapy to address a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain to dental disease. Laser therapy is fast, painless and scientifically proven to be effective. Because it does not require the use of medication or surgery, it is ideal for sick or older pets.
Chinese Herbal Therapy
Chinese herbal medicine is efficient in treating chronic medical conditions and is often used to relieve pain, improve and restore proper organ function, and boost the immune system. The underlying goal of herbal therapy is to return the body to a state of balance and wellness without the risk of side effects that traditional pharmaceuticals can present.
The holistic medicine options at Santaluz Animal Care are typically used in conjunction with our traditional Western medical services. They can also be used as standalone treatments in certain cases. Your pet’s individual situation will be carefully evaluated as we develop our treatment recommendation.
