Acupuncture and Laser Therapy
Here at Primary Care we have an Advanced Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist. Acupuncture is a minimally invasive treatment modality that can help with a variety of disease processes that may be affecting your pet's quality of life. Acupuncture works by releasing natural body chemical mediators that work via different mechanisms to relieve pain and inflammation, stress, and help stimulate healing. Acupuncture can help with arthritis, post-operative orthopedic or soft tissue surgery inflammation and pain, urinary issues, gastrointestinal issues, ear infections, allergies, auto-immune disorders, and stress among many others. Laser therapy accomplishes very similar effects on the body; however it is a non-invasive treatment. Laser therapy can assist with local repair of tissue and skin, decrease pain and inflammation, and provide neuromodulation in a similar way to acupuncture.
