Alternative Therapy

For many pet parents, the ability to choose alternative therapy options is a huge benefit. These techniques combine ancient methodology with modern technology for natural healing and enhanced wellness. At Crystal Mountain Animal Hospital, we’re pleased to offer a number of these integrative treatment options to help you better care for your four-legged friend.

Acupuncture

The ancient practice of acupuncture operates under the theory that when the body’s natural energy source becomes disrupted, sickness and pain can occur. To address these ailments without the need for medication, acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points along the body. Once inserted, the needles cause a cellular response in the targeted area. This restores the body’s energy, thereby promoting healing and reducing pain. Acupuncture can be used to treat anything from arthritis to respiratory problems and just about everything in between. It can also be used to boost the immune system and create better balance.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is an innovative technique that harnesses the power of light to naturally reduce pain and speed healing. We can use veterinary laser therapy to treat a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain to dental disease. Best of all, laser therapy is fast, painless and proven to be extremely effective. It also does not require the use of medication or surgery, making it ideal for sick or older pets.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

For thousands of years, the Chinese have believed that certain herbs, when strategically combined, can provide a natural way to manage the health of both people and animals. Chinese herbal medicine is particularly effective in treating chronic medical conditions and is often used to relieve pain, improve and restore proper organ function, and strengthen the immune system. The ultimate goal of herbal therapy is to gradually return the body to a state of balance and wellness without the risk of side effects that traditional pharmaceuticals can present.

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathy is based on the theory that the same substances which cause illness in the body, when used properly, can also counteract those same symptoms. The word homeopathy literally means “to treat with a similar disease”. Homeopathic medicine uses natural ingredients to help strengthen the body’s ability to fight off illness and restore a sense of balance throughout. It is especially effective in managing chronic medical conditions to improve the patient’s overall quality of life.
