Toenail Trims

Toenail Trims

Most birds need to have their nails trimmed regularly. However, the process can be detrimental to your bird if its nails are trimmed too short. We can take care of this procedure for you so that you don’t have to worry about nicking the blood vessels inside the nails. Call us if you’d like to schedule an appointment.

Be careful if you perform this procedure at home. In fact, we only suggest that you attempt this at home if your bird is small and has white nails (which allow you to see the blood vessels). We also suggest you keep a caustic agent, such as styptic powder, on hand in case a nail bleeds.

Providing perches with rough surfaces can help reduce the frequency of nail trimming, but do not use sandpaper perches. They don’t wear down the nails and can cause skin problems.

Gerbils, Guinea Pigs, and Hamsters

Gerbils, Guinea Pigs, and Hamsters

Just because they’re small doesn’t mean they can’t benefit from veterinary attention. Teeth, which grow continuously in gerbils, guinea pigs, and hamsters, often require trimming. (We can also recommend appropriate chew toys, which may help keep the teeth worn down.) Parasites such as lice, mites, and fleas can infest your pet. In addition, these companion animals can suffer from other health issues.

Therapies

Raw Food Diet

Dr. Buchoff’s specially formulated food for cats and dogs. Dr. B’s provides all the nutrition needed for your pet in a food that is more digestible than any other raw! http://www.drbholisticpetproducts.com/

Acupuncture – Dry Needle and Sonotron

A technique for relieving pain and for improving the function of organ systems by stimulating acupuncture points on the surface of the body. Energy points on the body, called meridians, are triggered using traditional needles or other stimulation such as laser, vitamin 12 injections, or pulsating energy waves (sonotron).

Cold laser therapy

A treatment using low level light emitting diodes that encourages healing and improved function at the cellular level by repairing the communication between the cells of organs and tissues.

Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM)

Chiropractic can be used to treat a broad spectrum of conditions in animals. The hand-held Activator instrument triggers ganglia (nerve switches) along the spinal cord to open neural pathways. Nerve stimuli are able to flow freely, which allows various organs, systems, and glands in the body to communicate most effectively. The body works as one unit, thereby minimizing the chances of chronic disease and optimizing immune system performance. We have witnessed miracles with this treatment! Giving periodic adjustments throughout the pet’s life, we can effectively prevent many chronic diseases and increase their longevity by over 25%! For example, hip dysplasia and patellar luxation can be completely avoided if treatments begin at 8 weeks old in predisposed dogs.

Nutritional Blood Test (NBT)

The aim of Bionutritional Analysis is to discover subclinical blood imbalances. Therapeutic protocols are then developed to improve or correct the total physiological and biochemical functioning of the body. This is a powerful tool in disease prevention as well as disease treatment.

Stem Cell (Vet-Stem)

A miraculous “fountain of youth” for severe arthritis in dogs! We surgically remove two ounces of body fat and ship it overnight to the Vet-Stem Laboratory in California. They extract the stem cells and ship them right back in syringes. Under sedation, we inject the stem cells into arthritic joints to regenerate function. Extra stem cells are injected intravenously to help the entire body rejuvenate itself.

Herbs (Western, Ayurvedic, Chinese Traditions)

Herbal medicine is a system of treatment utilizing whole plants and plant extracts in the treatment of disease and maintenance of health. Many pharmaceutical medications began as herbs but, by extracting the “active ingredient”, other constituents of the plant that would temper side effects are removed.

Homeopathy

Homeopathic remedies are liquid extracts or pellets derived from plants, minerals, drugs, viruses, bacteria or animal substances. These remedies do not mask or suppress symptoms; they treat the deepest constitutional causes of the illness. Homeopathic remedies contain vibrational energy that matches the patterns present in the diseased state within the ailing patient, and thereby neutralizing them.

Homotoxicology

Homotoxicology combines homeopathy, herbology, and the pet’s blood chemistry. The combination is injected into specific accupressure points to remove the specific toxins associated with that pet’s ailments.

Ozone Therapy

Oxygen molecules (O2) is made into Ozone (O3) using a specialized electrical generator. The ozone is then introduced into the animal in various ways depending on the ailment or disease. We have found this treatment to slow or stop the progression of cancer, as it has been proven that cancer cells cannot survive in hyperoxygenated environments. This has extended many cancer patients’ life spans. This also detoxifies the body, kills germs, improves functioning of all cells, and can reduce itchiness. Read Dr. Buchoff’s article about Ozone therapy.

Aromatherapy (Essential Oils)

Aromatherapy is the inhalation, ingestion or topical application of plant oils, called essential oils. They are used to improve physical, mental, and emotional well-being or to treat specific diseases.

 

Reiki

Traditional “laying on of hands” energy healing.

 

Bach Flower Emotional Remedies

Dr. Edward Bach, a British homeopath developed a collection of 38 remedies that correspond to common emotional states. Perhaps the most famous is a blend of five remedies known Rescue Remedy, which can be added to a pet’s water to minimize its stress level and thereby keeping immunity strong.

Vaccination with Homeopathic Remedy

Conservative vaccination schedule administered with supportive homeopathic remedies. We recommend only vaccinating up till 6 months of age, then monitoring the pet’s protection by performing vaccinal blood titers every 3 years.

Neoplasene bloodroot cancer therapy

Neoplasene is a cancer formulation made from bloodroot extract, halogens and water. It is administered topically and orally. It can dissolve tumors from the inside and outside simultaneously.
