Horses are majestic creatures who require a certain level of care to remain in optimum shape. We believe that alternative medicine offers excellent benefits to our equine friends without the risks and side effects that conventional medicine can sometimes bring. Haiku Veterinary Clinic is proud to offer integrative therapy options which are proven to help manage certain medical conditions and promote a healthier body.
Acupuncture involves the treatment of disease via certain points or channels along the body’s exterior. When acupuncture needles are inserted into a specific acupoint, it causes the release of endorphins and other cellular responses. This helps to reduce pain, improve mobility, restore normal function and boost the immune system. Acupuncture is a highly effective treatment on horses, and can be used in combination with traditional Western medicine or other alternative therapy options.
Plants can provide an excellent tool for treating chronic disease and supporting a healthier life in horses without the side-effects associated with drug therapy. The appropriate natural ingredients are combined into formulas which are specifically designed to address certain medical conditions. They can also be used to improve overall wellness and increase immunity.
