Have you considered osteopathy?
The aches, pains and illnesses of your pet cat, dog or ferret are often comparable to your own. For this reason, traditional veterinary medicine closely follows traditional medical treatments for humans. But what about alternative medicines, such as osteopathy? Increasingly popular among humans, we now see a lot of people turning to osteopathy for their pets.
Osteopathy is unconventional, but it has proven effective in both treatment and prevention. Osteopathy complements traditional medicine; it does not replace it.
So what exactly does a veterinary osteopath do? They use their hands to manipulate painful areas of the bones, muscles, ligaments, viscera, or skull. This overall, holistic approach is based on the idea that precise manipulation of the musculoskeletal and myofascial system can relieve certain functional disorders that are troubling your pet.
Does your pet suffer from rheumatism, digestive or even skin problems? Are they having difficulty recovering from surgery? When classic methods aren’t fully succeeding, osteopathy may help.
Don’t hesitate to consult your vet about osteopathy. If they are not an osteopath themselves, they can refer you to a colleague. Rest assured that they will both work together for your pet’s wellbeing.
