Acupuncture is a safe treatment that works with the body’s natural healing mechanisms to improve the quality of your pet’s life and can be used in combination with many other treatments and medications like antibiotics, steroids, NSAIDS. Three treatments are initially recommended 1 week apart to evaluate your pet’s response, then treatments can be as needed, depending on condition. Food, treats, and gentle Fear Free handling are used during our acupuncture treatments in San Antonio, but most pets tolerate needle placement very well.
Therapeutic laser therapy uses specific light waves to stimulate the tissues. Depending on the wavelength used, it can be used to affect the skin, muscles, or bone. Often laser therapy is used in conjunction with acupuncture, or is utilized in place of acupuncture if the patient is too sensitive to tolerate acupuncture in certain spots. Laser therapy treatment improves overall mobility and can also be used to speed wound healing. Recommendations for treatment are dependent on the condition being treated, and treatment packages are available.
