Holistic Pet Medicine
Sometimes the best way to treat a pet isn’t with traditional veterinary medicine alone. Sometimes, combining veterinary medicine with holistic medicine is the best solution, and we’re pleased to offer both here at Canobie Lake Veterinary Hospital in Windham. Our holistic pet medicine service combines Western and holistic medicine to provide various ways to diagnose and treat medical conditions. Holistic medicine, also known as alternative medicine, is a modality that treats your pet’s entire body, mind, and spirit to promote optimal health using the following:
- Laser therapy: Use of a laser light to treat pain and inflammation in a safe, non-invasive manner.
- Acupuncture (available at All Pets Veterinary Hospital): Placement of needles into specific points of the body to create a healing effect.
- Food therapy (available at All Pets Veterinary Hospital): Use of food to enhance the effects of acupuncture and herbal medicine to treat and prevent disease.
- Herbal therapy (available at All Pets Veterinary Hospital): Use of herbs alone or in conjunction with acupuncture to treat various medical conditions.
- Tui-na massage (available at All Pets Veterinary Hospital): Use of massage techniques that help balance the body’s energy and unblock pain areas. Intended to enhance the effects of acupuncture and herbal medicine.
