The biggest difference to the average pet owner is that holistic veterinarians strive to explore all other possibilities before medicating.

Non-invasive and natural healing techniques such as acupuncture, chiropractic, laser therapy, food therapy, and herbal supplements have yielded positive results in conditions that traditional medicine has had little success in treating.



Acupuncture can be described as the procedure in which needles are inserted into various points throughout the body for therapeutic or pain relief purposes. These points are called acupuncture points.  They can usually be felt as small depressions or elevations on the body surface and even have small nerve endings. When the small nerve endings are followed from the skin, the pathway eventually enters the spinal cord, and then travels to the organ or structure with which it is associated. Acupuncture points are often far away from the area being treated, but don’t worry, they do have nerve connections.

There are chemicals in the body that regulate the pain response – some of these chemicals are called endorphins. Endorphins are released by the brain to help regulate pain by making the body less sensitive. Stimulating acupuncture points with acupuncture needles can help with the release of endorphins and result in a decrease in painful responses within the targeted area of the nervous system. The nervous system in the body also influences how well organs are functioning, how well an animal feels, and how the immune system responds to problems.

Despite the curative properties of acupuncture, it is not a miracle cure for disease. It is an alternative to the Western medical approach and can offer another treatment option, specifically for: arthritis, surgical pain, anesthesia, organ dysfunction, and allergies. Studies have been done across the world showing acupuncture leads to improved results with liver, pancreatic, kidney, and gastrointestinal disease.



Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM) is a healing technology that locates areas of the animal’s nervous system that have fallen out of communication and re-establishes nerve communication. A tool called a spinal accelerometer, also known as an activator, is used to apply controlled, precise pressure on specific areas of your pet’s spine.

vom 2Use of the activator puts motion back into a locked spine. The spine should function like a slinky – with lots of movement. When there is muscle spasm applying tension to the vertebrae, the spine is locked in place, decreasing nerve and blood flow to the surrounding muscles and organs. The pressure applied with the activator shifts the vertebrae and “unlocks” the spasm.

VOM is so successful because it locates all of the spinal subluxations present in the animal regardless of whether clinical symptoms are present. It reduces tension and confirms that almost instantly.


The benefits of pet cold laser therapy are relatively new in the veterinary industry. Despite this, many veterinary facilities have begun to utilize this technology and are thrilled with the results.  Cold laser therapy can produce remarkable improvements in quality of life, and most notably in the reduction of pain and swelling resulting in increased patient mobility.

Cold laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects. It produces a photochemical, photothermal and photomechanical effect.

MLS Laser Therapy technology is the most advanced laser therapy system on the market. Reduction of response times, and therefore, overall treatment times, distinguishes MLS Laser Therapy from traditional laser therapy with reciprocal advantages for both the operator and the patient.
