Alternative Therapy

Alternative Therapy

For many pet parents, having the option to choose alternative therapy for their furry family members is a huge benefit. At Lakewood Animal Clinic, we’re pleased to offer a number of these integrative treatment options.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy uses the power of light to trigger the body’s natural healing and pain-control. We can use laser therapy to treat a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain to dental disease. Laser therapy is fast, painless and proven to be effective. It’s also non-invasive and does not require the use of medication, which makes it ideal for sick or older pets.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine can be highly effective in treating chronic medical conditions. It is also frequently used to relieve pain, improve and restore proper organ function, and strengthen the immune system. The ultimate goal of herbal therapy is to return the body to a natural state of balance and wellness without the risk of side effects that traditional pharmaceuticals can present.

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathy operates under the theory that the same substances which cause illness in the body, when used properly, can also counteract those same symptoms. Homeopathic medicine uses natural ingredients to help strengthen the body’s ability to fight off illness and restore healthy balance. It is especially useful in managing chronic medical conditions to improve the patient’s overall quality of life.

The holistic medicine options at Lakewood Animal Clinic are typically used in conjunction with our traditional Western medical services. They can also be used independently in certain cases. Your pet’s specific situation will be carefully considered when we are developing our treatment recommendation.
