Treatments

Appointment

In addition to more conventional modalities, Animal Healing Arts uses a variety of unique therapies in the care and treatment of your pet. Here are just a few of them:

Ozone Therapy
Ozone therapy is fundamentally about providing more oxygen for the body to use, and helping the tissues use the oxygen more efficiently. It is so effective because oxygen is an essential nutrient for every cell in the body.

All disease processes start with inflammation, and inflammation will always be enhanced in a low oxygen environment. Ozone will help support healing with any type of condition, either bacterial, viral, degenerative (arthritis, senior pets), autoimmune disease, and, of course cancer. For cancer patients in particular, this process boosts the immune system by strengthening the cells that do the work of eliminating damaged cells from the body. Because cancer cells thrive in a low-oxygen environment, ozone will directly help eliminate them.

Ozone is not a magic bullet, and we still need to address diet, detox and other supportive supplements, but it is definitely a valuable tool.

Hi Dose IV Vitamin C
High Dose IV Vitamin C can be a powerful adjunctive therapy for cancer patients and those that are immunecompromised. It helps support and stabilizes the immune system, and is also a powerful antioxidant.

Why the IV? The digestive tract works to limit the amount of oral vitamin c that can be absorbed into the blood stream. The same dose administered intravenously results in plasma concentrations more than 25 times higher than that from oral administration, without the digestive side effects. This is a very safe procedure that we provide in the clinic over a 2 hour infusion.

Mistletoe Therapy

Mistletoe is a very interesting plant with amazing health benefits, including treating cancer and minimizing side effects of conventional therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation. This plant has an amazing history of health advantages when treating cancer, including:

  • Preventing tumor metastasis
  • Causing cancer cell death (apoptosis)
  • Improves mitochondria health
  • Reduces tumor blood supply 
  • Stabilizes healthy DNA 
  • Stimulates the immune system 
  • Increases interleukin 2 
  • Reduces side effects of chemotherapy and radiation 
  • Reduction of tumor-related pain

Vaccine Alternatives

Nosodes
Nosodes are a type of homeopathic vaccination that will not cause the potential side-effects of traditional vaccines.  Nosodes are made using exudates or discharges from an infected animal.  These substances are diluted to a degree such that there is no real biological substance remaining.  There are no toxic preservatives or carriers that can cause the reactions seen when traditional vaccines are given.

Nosodes are given on the mucous membranes of the mouth which is a more natural route of exposure than traditional vaccine. When an unnatural substance such as a vaccination is injected into the body, there is often no established pathway for the body to process it.  This causes an inflammatory response that can result in disease elsewhere in the body.  These reactions are not necessarily immediate, but can occur up to several months/years later, often becoming chronic or recurrent (sometimes on the anniversary date of the vaccine). Reactions can include: skin and gut inflammation, auto-immune disease, seizures, and cancer.

Unlike traditional vaccinations, nosodes can also be used effectively in the face of exposure. Traditional vaccines are only effective if given in advance. This is a huge advantage, especially when treating very contagious diseases such as kennel cough.

Titer testing
This is a simple blood test that measures antibody levels against certain diseases that pets are typically vaccinated against. If you pet has adequate antibodies, then there is no need to vaccinate.

CBD (cannabidiol)
The use of medical cannabis has grown dramatically in recent years, amid a storm of amazing therapeutic benefits and controversy. The use of cannabis as a recreational drug has unfortunately overshadowed many of the potential health benefits of the hemp plant in both humans and pets. The recent Farm Bill passed by congress legalized hemp, separating it from cannabis plants (which have a much higher THC content). This opened the door for more open conversation in the veterinary community concerning the use of treating pets with CBD.

We are just starting to scratch the surface in learning about the potential benefits of CBD and the amazing hemp plant. Among the conditions we have treated with success to date are: seizures, anxiety, cancer, intestinal distress, pain, arthritis and other inflammatory diseases. The truth is that this plant is so safe to use that it is reasonable to try it in a variety of conditions to see if there is a beneficial effect. There is literally no toxic dose. We’ve found that using a full spectrum hemp product is essential to providing not only CBD, but other valuable constituents of the hemp plant.

UVBI Therapy

A valuable adjunct to ozone therapy, UVBI (Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation) is a form of light therapy using a biophotonic device. This light treatment further energizes the cells and enhances the effects of the ozone treatment. The ultimate benefits include:

  • Fighting bacterial and viral infections
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Restoring normal function of the immune system
  • Treating auto-immune disease
  • Treating cancer

This procedure is performed on the blood before re-injecting it into the body during a blood ozone treatment. There is no further discomfort to your pet…the process just takes a few minutes longer. Contact us for more information.

Fecal Microbiota Transplant
This procedure will transplant the microbiome from a healthy dog into your dog’s digestive tract. This can help with many chronic conditions such as low energy, diarrhea, vomiting, vaccine injury, over-medication, and poor nutrition. This can be, effectively, a jump-start for the gut. The procedure is performed in the clinic, using rectal ozone as a prep, and fecal material from a highly qualified doner.

Cold Laser Therapy

A cold laser is a photonic device used to stimulate the bodies natural healing process, helping your pet to recover and heal more rapidly. Laser therapy is based on frequency correction; when the cells in the body operate at their ideal frequency, they heal faster. Our laser can be programmed to hundreds of different frequencies to fit your pet’s individual needs. It reduces inflammation and pain, and can be used on a variety of conditions, such as: 

  • Burns 
  • Chronic Pain 
  • Bone Fractures 
  • Degenerative joints 
  • Osteoarthritis 
  • Skin wounds & lesions 
  • Muscle, tendon & ligament injuries 
  • Post-surgical incisions

This therapy is completely painless, and pets are generally soothed and calmed by the procedure. Contact us for more information.

Ketogenic Diets
In our experience, a species appropriate, low-glycemic diet is crucial to your pet’s good health and longevity. A ketogenic diet trains the cells in the body to burn fat as a fuel instead of glucose. Since fat is a more efficient energy source, cells in the body will be healthier, and cells that require glucose for energy, such as cancer cells, will suffer.

If you want to give your pet the best chance at a long, healthy, disease-free life, try a ketogenic diet. You have to feed them anyway, so why not give their bodies the best building blocks for a healthy life?

  • Skin conditions
