Acupuncture is often used for the relief of chronic pain (especially when associated with Osteoarthritis or degenerative neural conditions), post surgical healing and epilepsy.
Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of 5 branches of traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. These branches are Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, Food Therapy, Tui-Na (massage) and Exercise Therapy.
The objective of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine is to use a suitable combination of these 5 options to restore balance to the body. Disease of any type is considered an imbalance.
The choice to use Chinese Herbs, and the specific herbs chosen must be prescribed under strict Veterinary supervision.
Our herbs are sourced from the CHI Institute (Florida, USA).
Platelet Rich Plasma has gained popularity due to its use in the field of Human Sports Medicine and is used to treat ligament and tendon injuries in athletes. This has recently filtered into Canine Veterinary Medicine and has already been used for many years in Equine Veterinary Medicine.
We collect the patients own blood, filter that blood and collect the platelet rich plasma. That extract is rich in both growth and repair factors and this fraction is injected back into the patient's body as close to the site of injury as possible.
Common conditions treated in canines are partial cranial cruciate ligament tears, bicep tendon and Iliopsoas injuries. Horses are treated for tendon injuries.
Homotoxicology is a bridge between complementary and conventional medicine. It is a process whereby whole blood is taken from the patient, which is then diluted through a homeopathic process and then dosed back to the patient.
This process stimulates the patients body to recognise the disease and to respond with its own immunological and repair mechanisms, essentially assisting the patient's body to heal itself from within.
The premise behind Homotoxicology is that the body has its own intelligence and Homotoxicology awakens that intelligence to promote self healing.
Therapeutic Massage is used to improve blood flow, relax muscular tissue, which contributes to management of pain.
