Veterinary Complementary Therapy
In my practice, acupuncture is combined with other complementary (or integrative) therapies such as craniosacral therapy, herbs, homeopathics and nutritional supplements for your horse, dog or cat. Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (V.O.M.) with the activator method is sometimes applied. Western medical therapy is added if indicated.
Western medicine works best in certain situations. For emergency situations such as colic or broken bones, acute or severe infections or conditions, western medicine is the treatment of choice. For correct diagnosis through X rays, endoscopic evaluations, or advanced diagnostic imaging, western medicine excels.
In addition, for horses, there is no substitute for well balanced hoof trimming for conditions such as navicular disease and proper saddle fit for back soreness. It is imperative to look at the whole horse for optimal health and performance.
I am happy to work with your regular veterinarian to devise the best plan for your pet.
