Acupuncture is a holistic pain management technique which can provide almost immediate relief to your pet upon implementation. This traditional technique stimulates the nerves in your pet to restore their function and assist with ensuring they are in an optimal state. Often, pets experience rapid relief after receiving this form of therapy.
Each anesthetic procedure is customized based on weight, age and a variety of specific factors to ensure that both safe injectable medications and modern gas are delivered in the exact right quantity. Our nurses also monitor your pets blood pressure, respiration, heart rate, temperature, and oxygenation to further gain a comprehensive view of their health and to ensure there are no complications. We also keep a record of these diagnostic results, so that we can gain a deeper understanding of pet health trends.
We are proud to work with certified animal trainers who provide a holistic approach to behavioral issues that may be occurring with your pet.
