Want to help your pet enjoy a better life the natural way?
When it comes to keeping your pet happy and healthy, the more choices you have, the better. At Haiku Veterinary Clinic, we want to provide you with as many options as possible to better serve your companion’s health care needs. This includes integrative medicine, which combines conventional veterinary care with alternative and complementary therapies for a more comprehensive approach to animal health care. As part of our commitment to providing the best available care to our beloved patients, we’re pleased to include several integrative medicine services.
The ancient practice of acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to help the body heal from within. Tiny acupuncture needles are inserted into strategic points along the body, causing a chemical and cellular response. This triggers the body’s natural healing mechanisms to help reduce pain, manage existing medical conditions and promote a stronger immune system.
Chinese Herbal Therapy
The Chinese have long believed that certain natural ingredients, when combined properly, have the ability to induce healing and improve ongoing wellness. Herbal therapy is an excellent alternative to traditional pharmaceutical treatment methods because it is better for the body and produces no negative side effects. Older pets and those who are sensitive to certain medications greatly benefit from this type of therapy.
Laser technology has virtually revolutionized the way we treat and manage pain and other medical conditions in our animal friends. When the laser is applied to an area of the body that has suffered trauma, such as an injury or surgical wound, it causes a natural, healing reaction. The result is a marked reduction in pain and a much faster recovery period. The laser is painless, non-invasive and does not require the use of any drugs.
Our integrative medicine is available to our feline and canine patients. We invite you to start a discussion with us to see if one or more of these options would be beneficial to your pet.
