Other Therapies

Essential Oils

Essential oils are the natural oils typically derived through the distillation of natural plant sources that retain their characteristic fragrance and "essence." These oils can be used through a variety of methods such as diffusion or "petting," however, essential oils if misused and from poor quality, sources can pose a threat to the health of our pets. Discussion with your veterinarian can help mitigate these risks and allow for safe and appropriate use of essential oils in the right circumstances.

Essential oils can be used to assist in the management of anxiety and hormonal balance. They can also be used in combination or as an alternative to traditional insect repellants.

Flower Remedies

Flower remedies are an alternative or complementary therapy that is used in the management of treating emotional and stress-based issues in animals. They are derived from the flowers of particular plants, non-toxic and can be used long-term as needed.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone (O3) consists of three atoms of oxygen rather than the two atoms which we usually breathe. Ozone therapy has been used for humans and animals worldwide. Its applications are endless, from dentistry to wound healing. Ozone can assist with decreasing inflammation, pain and also help activate the body's immune system. It's proven to be an effective treatment of bacteria, viruses and fungi and has also been used as adjunctive therapy in some cancer cases.

Ozone can be administered intravenously, rectally, subcutaneously and topically. Since ozone reverts to oxygen (O2) after use, it is considered an environmentally friendly treatment.
