Acupuncture can be used for treating many disorders. It can help animals with pain, nausea, digestive problems, stress, respiratory problems and even assist in balancing an animal with cancer.
If you would like to learn more about what an acupuncture treatment looks like, see Dr. Magda’s blog post about it here: https://holistikavet.com/acupuncture-for-pets/
A discussion of nutrition and individualized diet plans is part of the consultation. Due to the recent concerns with Dilated Cardiomyopathy, or DCM, in dogs eating Grain Free diets, Dr. Magda has created a handout, explanation, and recommended dog food guide that can be emailed to you after the appointment.
If you wish to make your own diet for your pet at home, we offer Complete and Balanced recipes or help to balance your existing diet for an additional fee.
Cold lasers have many benefits. They can be anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving and help to stimulate cells to grow and even give the immune system a boost! They have been shown to help with non-healing wounds as well as arthritic pain. Lasers are a nice alternative for animals that do not like acupuncture treatments.
Holistika chose the Erchonia laser for its additional features and programmable options. In addition to the benefits of traditional lasers, the Erchonia has actually been shown in a case study out of Canada to benefit dogs with cancer, improving survival times even by years! If you are interested in learning more, we would love to discuss the details with you at our next visit.
All of our flower essence combinations are hand-selected by Dr. Magda based the behaviors your pet is displaying and are custom-tailored to your animal.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Long-term stress, poor diet, environmental toxins and life in general can cause the energy and blood flow in the body get stuck or impeded. This decreased or “stuck” blood circulation, when not corrected in its early stages, can lead to pain and/or disease. Chinese herbs help to open the energy and blood flow, which allows the body to heal itself. While Acupuncture works more quickly, it is sometimes not able to penetrate as deeply as Chinese herbs do. The two modalities complement each other allowing for a deeper treatment.
During your consultation, Dr. Magda will look at your pet’s tongue, pulse, the physical exam and your pet’s unique personality traits to determine what is out of balance and what, if anything, needs to be corrected. Sometimes diet alone will help the imbalance, and sometimes herbs and acupuncture are required to help the body auto-correct.
