Holistic care involves maintaining your pet’s overall bodily wellness. At Sunriver Veterinary Clinic, our holistic care offerings include acupuncture and herbal medicine.
Acupuncture is an alternative therapy treatment that pinpoints specific points on the body to encourage overall bodily healing and wellness. Acupuncture relieves pain, increases circulation, reduces inflammation, relieves muscle spasms and stimulates nerves and the body’s defense systems.
We treat many musculoskeletal disorders and chronic pain conditions with acupuncture at Sunriver Veterinary Clinic, including:
- Hip dysplasia
- Other orthopedic conditions
- Respiratory issues
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Skin problems like dermatitis
- Neurological issues
Herbal medications can provide pain relief, treat underlying disease and support the immune system and internal organ systems. We often recommend them in conjunction with traditional medications and/or treatments.
