With the use of integrative medicine techniques, our goal is to decrease your pet’s medications and side-effects by harnessing all areas of medicine.
We are an integrative pet hospital, not an alternative pet health center. Our goal is to work with your regular/referring veterinarian and provide additional diagnostics and treatments that will help enhance your pet’s treatment.
This will be guided by our integrative use of anatomy, biomechanics, exercise physiology, sports conditioning, rehabilitation, orthopedics, internal medicine, pulmonary, cardiology, neurology, gerontology, nutrition/supplements, Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Techniques (VSMT), Acupuncture (AP), therapeutic laser, therapeutic ultrasound, shockwave and herbal supplements to help us achieve our goals.
We treat a variety of small animals experiencing pain, orthopedic disorders, soft tissue or neurological issues. Remember, humans & dogs aren’t the only ones to experience things like arthritis.
How It Works
The examination will differ from a regular examination in that we will be using our hands to discover areas of pain, heat and tension to guide our treatment.
The initial work up is encompassed by a physical exam, neurological exam, active range of motion (AROM), proprioception and pain assessment. The assessment may use video, pictures, thermal imaging, goniometry (measurement of passive range of motion) as well.
We will work together with a plan for the best treatment of your pet: acupuncture, therapeutic laser treatment, sports conditioning or integrative medicine. In addition, we will provide our clients information on stretching, massaging and exercises at home to help assist in their goals.
