Does your pet suffer from arthritis, weight problems, skin issues, or general lethargy? If so, our holistic vet clinic in the Frederick area can help to diagnose and treat the problem using natural integrative therapies. Instead of prescribing strong medications that have their own arsenal of side effects, we will evaluate your pet’s condition and discuss which holistic treatments may benefit you and your pet. We offer treatments for diseases as serious as cancer, or can provide general well-being treatments to insure your pet is living the best life possible.
Chiropractic and Acupuncture
Two treatments that are beneficial for overall well-being is chiropractic and acupuncture. Chiropractic is the manipulation of the spine to provide proper alignment. This can help animals who suffer from arthritis, animals who are in the later years of their life, and those who are used for racing or labor work. Acupuncture works to treat arthritis, digestive problems, reproductive problems, and respiratory problems. Depending on your pet’s condition, our veterinarians may recommend that your pet receive massage treatments or try aquapuncture, which is the practice of inserting liquid vitamins through the acupuncture needle.
Alternative Cancer Treatment
A traditional vet clinic may recommend invasive treatments for animals with cancer. Holistic approaches will be easier on your pet and may still be as effective. Neoplasene is one treatment that integrative veterinarians offer to try and treat cancer in animals. Neoplasene is supposed to attack malignant cells to help eradicate the cancer. If your pet is recovering from cancer treatments, we can help you choose the best diet and care to insure that your pet recovers his or her quality of life. If you live in the Frederick area, give us a call to see how we can help.
