Rehabilitation and Alternative Therapy

As alternative therapies have become more popular with pet owners, we have added these modalities to the services we offer. Alternative therapies, which are also referred to as “integrative” or “complementary” therapies, include acupuncture, underwater treadmill treatments, stem cell therapy, laser therapy, magnetic therapy, and massage therapy. We provide these therapies in conjunction with traditional medicine and surgery to help improve outcomes and to give us additional options for treating our patients. We recommend rehabilitation and alternative therapy for the post-surgical, geriatric and arthritic patients as well as those recovering from trauma and injury. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about whether these types of therapy could benefit your pet.
