Joy, our Border Collie puppy, injured her left rib cage, resulting in a large hematoma behind her front leg. Her primary veterinarian, Dr. Betsy Gray placed a drain in the area and then as healing began to take place, I took her to Mountainside Veterinary Rehabilitation. Dr. Carlson began Integrative Medicine involving acupuncture, chiropractic and stretching exercises to assist Joy in her healing so that the injury would not inhibit her ability to fully extend and utilize her left leg. Joy is now in herding training and is fully healed with no evidence of her previous injury.
PEMF therapy can help your pet recover from their sports conditioning or rehabilitation sessions. Electromagnetic Field Therapy can be used for the treatment of fractures, failed fusions, and arthritis in pets. The device produces electromagnetic fields which activate Nitric Oxide, which can promote accelerated healing. This therapy will aid in building oxygenation of the tissues, boosting your pets metabolism.
