The physiology of our pets is not that different from our own, so the same principles of acupuncture that apply to humans work on our animal companions as well. It helps the body heal itself, may help the user reduce the dosage of some of their medications, and makes other more modern healing techniques work better.


Regenerative Therapies


Proliferation Therapy, better known as Prolotherapy, is a nonsurgical treatment that stimulates healing and has been shown to assist with non-surgical ligament and tendon reconstruction. Prolotherapy works by stimulating the body's own natural healing mechanisms to repair injured musculoskeletal tissue.


Canine Platelet Therapy

Canine Platelet Enhancement Therapy (C-PET) or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Prolotherapy consists of injections of concentrations of platelets above baseline levels. Prolotherapy is like planting seeds in a garden; PRP Prolotherapy is like planting seeds with fertilizer. Since your pet is the donor and recipient, there are no immune reactions. 


Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy is a non-invasive way to help manage your pet's pain due to osteoarthritis. The entire procedure - procurement of stem cells, processing, and joint injections - are performed on-site the same day. Stem cell therapy is fast becoming one of the most widely used forms of regenerative medicine.
