Pet Dentistry

It’s just as vital for dogs and cats to see a dentist on a regular basis as it is for humans. The oral health of your pet is linked to their overall wellness. Bad smell, loose, broken, or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed, or bleeding gums, difficulty or discomfort chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling are all signs of dental illness. Please contact our staff if you observe any of these symptoms, and we’ll be pleased to assist you.

Pet Acupuncture and Chiropractic
Pet acupuncture and chiropractic are two alternative therapies that are becoming increasingly popular. Pet acupuncture is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and involves the insertion of needles into specific points on the body. Pet chiropractic is a hands-on therapy that uses gentle adjustments to improve joint function and relieve pain. Both therapies can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, and spinal disc disease.

Pet Radiology

When it comes to precisely diagnosing your pet, radiography can be a very useful tool in our diagnostic toolbox. Broken bones, blockages, arthritis, lumps, and cancers are all diagnosed and examined by digital X-rays. We employ digital X-rays to confirm pregnancies and detect swallowed items, among other things.

Pet Cold Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a cutting-edge veterinary medical procedure for treating a variety of ailments, including chronic pain in pets. Class IV (cold) laser therapy is very beneficial for treating pets with osteoarthritis pain, regardless of whether or not they have had orthopedic surgery.

Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive method that employs light to enhance circulation and stimulate blood flow. It is not a surgical laser that slices tissue, but rather a laser with several wavelengths that aids in tissue healing. The laser might even be used instead of needles during acupuncture.

Pet Herbal Medicine

Herbal drugs are frequently used in our clinic and are included in almost every treatment plan. We use herbal medicine for a variety of reasons. 1. To obtain quicker outcomes. 2. To achieve longer-lasting outcomes after drugs have improved an animal’s mood. 3. To substitute a high-risk, high-side-effects prescription medicine. 4. To attain an outcome for which there is no medicinal treatment.
