Many people are starting to explore other forms of medicine, other than traditional medicine. This is also true in veterinary medicine. Here at Vida Veterinary Mobile Services, we are excited to be able to offer holistic and traditional medicine to help our patients heal!
Acupuncture has been used in humans and animals for over 3,00 years and is a good alternative therapy to western treatment plans. The American Veterinary Medical Associations considers veterinary acupuncture a valid modality within the practice of veterinary medicine and surgery.
Acupuncture has been shown to help pets with pain, osteoarthritis, vomiting, cancer pain, endocrine disorders, and much more. It helps pets even more than you and I might realize so be sure to discuss your pet's case with your veterinarian to see whether or not acupuncture might be helpful! You may want to consider adding acupuncture to keep your pet as active and healthy as possible.
Many owners worry that their pets won't tolerate acupuncture. However, the opposite is true. Many quickly learn to love it!
Here at Vida Veterinary Mobile Services, we are proud to offer Homeopathy, also called Alternative Medicine. Many owners do not like to give traditionally prescribed medications so we have many alternatives for pain, vomiting, allergies, and many other conditions. We are excited to be able to offer this service since many veterinarians do not!
