Alternative Medicine

What is alternative medicine?

Treatments other than conventional western medicine are typically considered “Alternative.” Alternative therapies are backed by years of use and as veterinarians, we believe that some alternative approaches can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine.

Laser Therapy

At Inspirada Animal Hospital we offer laser treatment. This non-surgical, non-invasive approach to healing and recovery has been incorporated into treatments that address a multitude of conditions.

Conditions that benefit from laser therapy are including but not limited to the following:

Pain & inflammation
Post-operative incisions and tissues
Skin wounds
Muscle injuries
Edema
Lick granulomas
Osteoarthritis
Nervous system injury and neurologic conditions
Tendon and ligament injuries

Acupuncture

What can veterinary acupuncture do for my cat or dog?

The goal of acupuncture is to promote the body to heal itself. Acupuncture is a tool that can considerably improve pain management in a safe yet effective manner. It involves the insertion of needles into body tissue where nerve bundles and blood vessels come together. These groups of nervous and vascular tissue are termed acupuncture points. With acupuncture, we can help control an animal’s pain that conventional medications were either insufficient or contraindicated. Even more so, acupuncture’s ability to help manage chronic medical conditions. Where traditional medicine reaches its limits and can play a role on a pet’s vital organs, acupuncture can often go further, to help mediate the condition thereby extending and improving our patients’ quality of life.
