Alternative Medicine for Pets Across the NC Triangle

While traditional medicine is invaluable, other methods can be worth pursuing. Depending on what health problem your pet is experiencing, alternative medicine can be an effective solution to pet health. Through physical therapy and laser therapy, Care First Animal Hospital offers our patients alternative medicine in Raleigh, NC and our locations throughout the Triangle.

Discover the Benefits of Pet Physical Therapy

Physical therapy has been proved to be just as effective for pets as it is for humans. The veterinarians at Care First use effective techniques to provide healing, reduce pain and assist in recovery for musculoskeletal injuries. In addition to a quick recovery of two to four months, we’ve seen cats, dogs and other pets enjoy the following benefits of physical therapy:

  • Weight loss/muscle gain
  • Quicker recovery from injury
  • Improved endurance and agility
  • Reduced pain and dependence on medication
  • Increased mobility and flexibility
  • Disease, injury and stress prevention

In addition, it’s quite possible that our Raleigh physical therapy can improve your pet’s mobility and promote their health, especially if they have:

  • Undergone orthopedic surgery
  • Chronic pain
  • Recently experienced a trauma or injury
  • Neurological problems
  • Age-related pain or immobility
  • A weight problem
  • A high susceptibility to injury

We encourage you to speak to a member of our team to find out if pet physical therapy is the best solution for your furry friend.

Our Raleigh Laser Therapy for Dogs, Cats & More

Care First Animal Hospital offers laser therapy for pets in Raleigh as an alternative option to surgery. Laser therapy is a noninvasive, drug-free healing treatment that reduces pain and inflammation and speeds up the healing process. Using a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue and induce a biological response called photo-bio-modulation, laser therapy causes the body to boost self-healing by increasing cellular adenosine-triphosphate.

Our veterinarians use laser therapy to improve the condition of a variety of disorders, including:

  • Acute or chronic otitis (ear inflammation)
  • Sinusitis/Rhinitis
  • Hot spots
  • Postoperative wound recovery
  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative joint or disc disease
  • Cystitis (inflammation of the bladder)
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Lick granulomas
  • Gingivitis and periodontal disease
  • Wound healing
  • Minor wounds
  • Other dermatologic disorders
