Are you looking for a veterinarian that practices holistic therapies for your pet? The veterinary team at Burke Animal Clinic would love to help you out. Below is more information about the types of holistic therapies we offer here.
What are Holistic Therapies?
Holistic therapies are alternative medicine, using a more holistic approach to health instead of traditional medicine. Drug-free methods are used to help get your pet back to their happy and healthy self. Holistic therapies can also be used alongside traditional methods of medicine.
Holistic Therapies for Pets
Holistic therapies for pets can come in different forms. Our veterinary team will do our best to help remove any symptoms of illness your pet may be experiencing through holistic means. The holistic medicine we offer includes active release therapy, acupuncture, auto sanguineous/homotoxicology, Bicom, Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM) and cold laser therapy.
Active release therapy helps give movement back to tissue, nerves, and blood vessels. Soft tissue that feels out of place or not normal are carefully moved back into place by our veterinarian. Acupuncture is an ancient method of Chinese medicine that uses long, thin needles to penetrate the top layer of skin to help reduce symptoms and cure a variety of illnesses. Pets that are suffering from allergies, diarrhea, back pain, incontinence and more can benefit from acupuncture.
Homotoxicology uses a combination of holistic medicine and modern medicine to help improve the condition of your pet. Oral medicines and injections are used to help detoxify the body to restore your pet’s health. Bicom uses Bioresonance to help your pet’s cells communicate with each other, assisting in the healing of your pet.
Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM) and cold laser therapy can be combined to manipulate the spine in order to heal other parts of the body. Back pain, allergies, limping, herniated discs, chronic and acute kidney disease and more can benefit from cold laser therapy and VOM.
