Therapies We Offer

Alternative Therapies

Essential oils are extracted from medicinal plants and administered topically, orally, or diffused in the air in order to treat diseases or modify emotions to curtail diseases. 

A technique for relieving pain and for improving the function of organ systems by stimulating acupuncture points on the surface of the body in order to optimize the flow of Qi (life force energy). We use the Sonotran machine, which sends pulses of radio, heat, and sound waves to the acupuncture points. We have found this to be faster and more effective than the use of needles in animal patients. It is often used in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments.

Chiropractic Adjustments-Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM)
Chiropractic can be used to treat a broad spectrum of conditions in animals. It works for any patient with a spine. The hand-held Activator instrument triggers ganglia (nerve switches) along the spinal cord to open neural pathways. Nerve stimuli are able to flow freely, which allows various organs, systems, and glands in the body to communicate most effectively. The body works as one unit, thereby minimizing the chances of chronic disease and optimizing immune system performance. We have witnessed miracles with this treatment! Giving periodic adjustments throughout the pet's life, we can effectively prevent many chronic diseases and increase their longevity by over 25%! For example, hip dysplasia and patellar luxation can be completely avoided if treatments begin at 8 weeks old in predisposed dogs.

Cold Laser Therapy
A treatment using low level light emitting diodes that encourage healing on a cellular level by repairing the communicaton between the cells of organs and tissue. Just about every condition can be treated with a specific series of settings for each particular disease or ailment. Results are often seen  within a short period and the treatment is painless. It requires an intense first week of treatments and then just twice weekly for two more weeks, and then single ones the following two weeks.

Herbal medicine is a system of prevention and treatment utilizing whole plants and plant extracts in the treatment of disease and maintenance of health. We carry a large variety of herbal supplements for just about every concern and disease. Regular bloodwork should be done to see if disease or weaknesses are starting and supplements may be prescribed by our expert veterinarians.

Homeopathic remedies are made from plants, minerals, drugs, viruses, bacteria, or animal substances. These remedies do not mask or suppress symptoms; they treat the deepest constitutional causes of the illness by modifying the body's life force energy. Homeopathic remedies contain vibrational energy essences that match the patterns present in the diseased state within the ailing patient. Homeopathy works on the principle of "Similia Similibus Curentur," or "like cures like." For example,  if a large dose of a toxic substance is swallowed, it can produce death, but when a homeopathic, diluted, minute dose of the substance is given, it can save a poisoned animal.

Homotoxicology combines homeopathy, herbology, and the pet's blood chemistry. The combination is injected into specific accupressure points to remove the specific toxins associated with that pet's ailments.  

Ozone Therapy
Oxygen molecules (O2) are extracted from water using a specialized electrical generator and then re-combined with pure oxygen to create ozone (O3).  The ozone is then injected into the animal in various ways, depending on the ailment or disease. We have found this treatment to slow or stop the progression of cancer, as it has been proven that cancer cells cannot survive in hyperoxygenated environments.  This has extended many cancer patients' life spans. This also detoxifies the body, improves functioning of all cells, and can reduce itchiness.

Stem Cell (VetStem)
A miraculous "fountain of youth" for severe arthritis in dogs!  We surgically remove 2 ounces of body fat and ship it overnight to the Vet Stem Laboratory in California.  They extract the stem cells and ship them right back in syringes. Under sedation, we inject the stem cells into arthritic joints to regenerate function.  Extra stem cells are injected intravenously to help the entire body rejuvenate itself.  We have seen within 3 weeks, old dogs previously crippled by arthritis running and acting like puppies again!
