Alternative and Complementary Therapy

Although we practice all aspects of internal medicine, dermatology, and surgery, we integrate several alternative therapies to our daily practice as well. Alternative therapies, which are also referred to as “integrative” or “complementary” therapies, include but are not limited to acupuncture, nutritional therapy, chiropractic, herbal and glandular supplements, homeopathy, laser therapy, applied kinesiology. We provide these therapies in conjunction with traditional medicine and surgery to help improve outcomes and to give us additional options for treating our patients. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about whether these types of therapy could benefit your pet.
