At our Mooresville veterinary hospital we offer a range of integrative medicine services, including acupuncture, Class IV Therapeutic Laser Therapy, and nutraceutical care (dietary supplementation), in conjunction with our regular veterinary/pharmacy care.
At Lake Norman Animal Hospital, we provide primarily traditional veterinary treatments and therapies for our patients. In some cases, however, certain integrative medicine options can provide additional relief from symptoms, and are therefore worth exploring.
We offer several different pet holistic integrative medicine options to supplement our traditional veterinary care, and include them in treatment plans on a case-by-case basis, depending on the individual patient's needs.
We currently offer the following integrative medicine treatment options to supplement your pet's veterinary care.
Acupuncture is a type of Traditional Chinese Medicine that promotes healing by restoring the energy balance in the body. Acupuncture can be effective in cats and dogs in many of the same ways it is in humans.
When implemented in combination with veterinary medical therapies and treatments, acupuncture techniques are safe, and can be effective in promoting healing in cats and dogs.
Nutraceutical care for cats and dogs refers primarily to dietary supplementation. Like humans, cats and dogs sometimes don't get everything they need from their diets. In these cases, supplements may help.
In combination with efforts to improve your pet's nutrition, we may recommend certain supplements to help improve your pet's health and overall condition.
Class IV Therapeutic Laser Therapy is a non-surgical, drug-free treatment option that can be used to treat inflammatory conditions in pets, and can be undertaken in conjunction with traditional treatments.
Your pet may be a candidate for Class IV Therapeutic Laser Therapy if they have sustained an injury, undergone orthopedic surgery, or suffer from arthritis or other inflammatory conditions.
