Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the alternative therapies we offer at Paradise Point Animal Hospital. While many people do not realize that you can treat animals with acupuncture, it is a very beneficial form of therapy that could help your pet with a number of conditions. Acupuncture is one of the techniques of Chinese medicine and can be paired with other alternative therapies to provide enhanced benefits.

At our veterinary clinic, we use acupuncture to help treat musculoskeletal, neurological, skin, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and some reproductive problems. This therapy offers a variety of benefits and can help decrease inflammation, stimulate nerves, calm muscle spasms, relieve pain, and more. Acupuncture can be a beneficial treatment for a number of different conditions, from arthritis to asthma and so much more! Acupuncture can even help athletic dogs stay in top physical shape. Be sure to learn more about acupuncture and contact us to find out if it is the right therapy for your pet!

Cold Laser Therapy

Another alternative therapy that we offer at our veterinary clinic is cold laser therapy. This is a unique therapy that can provide your pet with a variety of benefits. Cold laser therapy is often used for surgery, pain control, rehabilitative therapy, and management of chronic conditions. This alternative therapy uses a class IV laser and is a quick, painless treatment. The laser enters damaged cells and helps stimulate inter-cellular activity, leading to a faster healing process.

Our veterinarians can use cold laser therapy to help your pet with a variety of conditions or health problems. It can be used for chronic pain, relieving acute pain from an injury, stimulating healing, speeding up recovery time, and so much more! This is an effective therapy option that could help your pet feel healthier and happier. Our team will be able to determine if this is the right treatment option for your furry friend. Be sure to contact us with any questions you may have!

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy, or underwater treadmill therapy, is a beneficial and unique alternative therapy option for your pet. This therapy is a type of rehabilitation treatment that is used for pets who have neurological problems, orthopedic injuries, are recovering from surgery, or need to lose weight. This is a beneficial treatment that reduces pressure on the joints while helping to improve balance, strength, physical endurance, flexibility, and boosts overall wellbeing.

Hydrotherapy is a great way to get your pet moving and building strength without putting all of their weight on painful joints, recovering injuries, or weak muscles. This is a unique type of therapy that can be extremely beneficial for a number of different issues your pet may be facing. When paired with other alternative therapies and rehabilitation services, your pet can experience more benefits and recover faster. Learn more about our hydrotherapy treatment today!

Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbal medicine is another alternative therapy that we offer. This is one of the techniques used in traditional Chinese medicine and has been practiced for over 4,000 years. Chinese herbal medicine uses a variety of herbs to provide different benefits. This alternative therapy can be used to improve the quality of life in older dogs and cats, can assist in the body’s ability to reduce tumor sizes, promotes the body’s ability to heal itself, and can treat imbalances throughout the body.

Depending on what your dog or cat needs treatment for, we could use Chinese herbal therapy to help. We create herbal formulas from a combination of different herbs, using modern-day technology. This treatment can be used to treat gastrointestinal, respiratory, neurological, hormonal, and musculoskeletal problems, as well as other issues your pet may be facing. Oftentimes, this alternative therapy is paired with acupuncture to enhance the benefits. If you are interested in learning more about Chinese herbal medicine, please contact us today!

Pet Massage
