… At the cutting edge for their well-being
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine have proven themselves for more than 2000 years for humans and horses, but it was not until the last century that the benefits for dogs and cats were discovered.
In western veterinary medicine, acupuncture is officially recognized as a pain reliever.
Through its effects on the blood, nervous and immune systems, acupuncture can help animals that suffer from neurological, musculoskeletal, metabolic, respiratory, digestive, skin and even behavioral problems.
… A gentle touch
Osteopathy is a manual medicine which aims to restore the balance of the body and its capacity for self-healing.
The principle is to eliminate areas of tension, which allows the body to regain the free movement of all its structures and fluids.
In veterinary medicine, these fine and precise manipulations can prevent and relieve muscular, joint, nervous, digestive, skin and many other problems.
