Preventing and detecting disease early is important for your pet to continue living a healthy life. The better their health, the lower your veterinary care costs are likely to be. Following the advice of your veterinarian regarding routine and preventative care, can help them stay healthy and active longer.
Routine Services include routine comprehensive health checks, timely inoculations, routine heartworm and flea control, dental care, and obesity management.
Chiropractic is a non-invasive approach that does not involve drugs. Chiropractic adjustments can help many joint and nerve problems and allow the body to heal itself. Nerves sometimes have trouble conducting a proper impulse when the joints are not in proper alignment, or are subluxated.
Regular chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate problems arising from neck, spine, leg or tail problems and can slow down the progression of arthritis, promote balanced health, and promote proper gaiting. They work by restoring the normal function to the spine, spinal motor units and joints. They can also help to prevent problems that may arise. Injury is the most common reason that our pets need this kind of help.
Active dogs tend to be in greater need of adjustments. Dogs that perform agility, obedience and herding are most likely to have spinal problems.
Acupuncture stimulates nerve bundles that alters the physiology and biochemical features which allows the body to heal itself.
Acupuncture, aquapuncture, and acupressure are all forms that are used at Preemption Veterinary Clinic.
Acupuncture involves very thin needles inserted in specific points on meridians of the body. The needles are so fine, most dogs and cats do not realize that they are going in.
Aquapuncture involves injecting a liquid in the same points for longer stimulation.
Acupressure is taught for home use and is putting pressure on or massaging the points. There are many uses for these techniques including hip or elbow dysplasia, kidney failure; they can even help with seizures.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a complementary therapy which uses muscle testing to identify imbalances within the body.
One of the principals of AK is that there is energy that flows through out the entire body, from cells to the body as a whole. The musculature of the body is a natural feedback system which acts as a precise indicator of systems of the body.
We use AK to help with allergy therapy. We can determine what foods and medications can make an improvement in the health of your pet. By eliminating foods that are not good for your pet, they can lead a much more comfortable and healthy life.
This procedure is totally pain-free and all your pet needs to do is sit quietly on our table. We can also determine medication regimes.
