When Pet Medication Doesn’t Work, We Still Have Solutions

Best known for its pain management capabilities and holistic, more natural approach to veterinary medicine, alternative therapies for pets have become a contemporary method of stimulating the healing process. In the case that Western or conventional veterinary practices (such as prescribed medicine and traditional treatments) are not working, your pet may very well become a prime candidate for these Eastern alternative therapies. Some of our more popular animal alternative therapies include the use of laser therapy and essential oils.

Pet laser therapy is a noninvasive treatment that utilizes light and heat to treat arthritic pets, back pain, trauma, wounds, and gingivitis, among a number of other conditions.

Veterinary essential oils and aromatherapy can also be used to help heal a variety of issues, from pet anxiety to wounds, cancer, pet skin conditions, and undesirable animal behavioral issues.

While animal alternative therapy does have its benefits, it is also important to note that you should not solely rely on these methods as a replacement to your pet’s routine veterinary wellness care; our goal is to use a combination of treatment options to provide your pet with the best care possible.

Other forms of veterinary pain management that East Side Animal Hospital can offer to your pet are pain medications, supplements to help with joint issues and other problems, and weight loss control including dietary and nutritional consultations.
