Many people are starting to explore other forms of medicine, other than traditional medicine. This is also true in veterinary medicine. Here at Cameron Veterinary Clinic, we are excited to be able to offer holistic and traditional medicine to help our patients heal!
Acupuncture has been shown to help pets with pain, osteoarthritis, vomiting, cancer pain, endocrine disorders, and much more. It helps pets even more than you and I might realize so be sure to discuss your pet’s case with your veterinarian to see whether or not acupuncture might be helpful! You may want to consider adding acupuncture to keep your pet as active and healthy as possible.
Many owners worry that their pets won’t tolerate acupuncture. However, the opposite is true. Many quickly learn to love it!
Here at Cameron Veterinary Clinic, we are proud to offer Homeopathy, also called Alternative Medicine. Many owners do not like to give traditionally prescribed medications so we have many alternatives for pain, vomiting, allergies, and many other conditions. We are excited to be able to offer this service since many veterinarians do not!
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Here at Cameron Veterinary Clinic, we are proud to offer Western Herbal Therapy for our patients.
As more people look for more homeopathic and natural ways to treat their own symptoms, they want the same for their beloved pets.
Herbal therapy has been used for years with the Chinese. However, Western doctors and veterinarians are seeing results and want to treat their patients the best way that they can, often combining traditional medicine with Western herbal therapy.
Western herbal therapy often begins with a single herb, instead of the mixtures that are common with Chinese herbal therapy. It is best to have a diagnosis but that is not always necessary before trying therapy. We treat the patient as a whole, not just the symptoms that he or she is exhibiting.
Western herbal therapy is used to improve a patient’s well being. They are good at treating chronic diseases to help your pet feel better. They are not quick fixes and should never be used in an emergency.
It is also important to use the correct herbs. Some have different formulas for pets so it is best to buy your herbs from us or a reputable dealer.
If you have any questions about Western Herbal therapy and how it can help your pet, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (505) 466-1540.
