Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicinal technique used to stimulate the immune system and local nerves, relax muscles, adjust blood and lymph flow, and release endorphins. Many diseases and injuries can benefit from acupuncture including orthopedic diseases (osteoarthritis), neurological conditions (seizures, intervertebral disc problems), gastrointestinal diseases (inflammatory bowel disease, diarrhea, vomiting and constipation), and respiratory problems (asthma and bronchitis). Patients undergoing chemotherapy can also be treated with acupuncture to support the immune system and decrease adverse side effects. At East End Veterinary Center, we have veterinarians experienced and trained in acupuncture for pets, extending this centuries-old, proven holistic medicinal technique to the animal community.
Laser Therapy (also known as Cold Laser) uses the a low-wattage Class IV laser to stimulate cells and encourage the natural healing process. This therapy stimulates the body to heal on its own, a non-invasive approach to pain management and overall wellness in pets that experience chronic or inflammatory illness, who are suffering from trauma or post-operative discomfort, or who are experiencing age-related symptoms.
