Holistic Massage and Acupuncture for Your Pet

Holistic veterinary medicine provides canine and feline patients at Pewaukee Veterinary Service with a greater range of options for health and wellness. It is a gentle and often preventative form of care, in which the ultimate goal is to enable the body to heal itself without the intervention of drugs or surgery. Also called alternative, integrative, or complimentary medicine, treatments include pet massage therapy, acupuncture, herbal medicine, chiropractic care, and more. Often used in conjunction with traditional approaches, they offer empathetic, individualized care for your special dog or cat.

Acupuncture Pinpoints Pain Relief for Dogs

Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine that uses needles to influence the healing power of the central nervous system. Precise placement helps balance hormones, improve circulation, relieve pain and muscle tension, regulate breathing and blood pressure, and relax the body and mind. It can successfully manage joint pain and arthritis, degenerative disc disease, epilepsy, organ dysfunction, incontinence, respiratory illness, and more, and also aids healing after injury or surgery.

Holistic Pet Massage Therapy Helps Furry Friends Feel Their Best

Dogs and cats with chronic pain due to joint disease, musculoskeletal disorders, or trauma often benefit from the human touch—specifically, therapeutic massage. This medical specialty focuses on soft tissue manipulation to relieve discomfort and encourage healing and a higher quality of life.

A number of additional treatment options may be considered, including these rehabilitative therapies:
• Physical therapy, hydrotherapy (underwater treadmill), and therapeutic exercise
• Spinal manipulation
• Laser, electrical stimulation, micro-current, and shockwave therapies
• Nutritional and herbal therapy
