Here at Capitol Animal Clinic, we are proud to offer our clients a wide range of treatment options for all medical situations. Acupuncture is one of those options we can work into any treatment plan and often works well alongside other medical therapies. Our veterinarian has been certified in these techniques and will customize a plan to get your pet back on the road to wellness.
Acupuncture takes into account that every system in the body is connected and affects every other system in some way. When a system does not function correctly, the whole body is out of balance and needs correction. While acupuncture is felt differently by individuals, there is usually little to no pain associated with the therapy and it is considered a non-invasive treatment.
Laser therapy, or “cold” laser therapy, has been used in human medicine and has recently been brought over to the veterinary world. This cutting-edge treatment uses light waves to stimulate the cells of the body in a targeted area to activate the body’s own healing processes. Laser therapy is an effective treatment to speed up healing time after an injury or surgery. It is also great for reducing inflammation, making it effective against arthritis or dysplasia. This is often a lower cost alternative to expensive drug therapies which are also hard on some organ functions.
If you have any questions about these two amazing treatment options, don’t hesitate to call one of our knowledgeable staff members today! You can also ask our friendly staff about our other services such as weight management, dentistry, and more for your pets. Visit us today in Lincoln, NE.
