Holistic Services

If you're interested in natural remedies for your pet, you're not alone. Millions of pet owners across North America now look first to holistic veterinarian options for their pets, avoiding unnecessary medication doses and invasive treatments. At South Side Animal Clinic in Rolla, MO, we are proud to offer in-depth holistic care for your pet.

We understand that there is often no "one size fits all" option when it comes to treatment, and so we take the time to fully evaluate your pet's health and determine the best combination of conventional and alternative care. Here are some of the holistic services we offer.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone is a type of oxygen used therapeutically in either gas or liquid form. Ozone can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions, from arthritis and viruses to cancer. While it is not a cure, Ozone can help ease the symptoms associated with these illnesses and can promote wellness by putting your pet more at ease. 

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy (sound wave treatment) has been used since the early 1990s to treat a wide range of conditions from kidney stones to arthritis in humans. In more recent years, it has been shown to help pets suffering from orthopedic issues.

Cold Laser Therapy

This is a noninvasive laser treatment that stimulates the upper layers of the skin to promote circulation and cell regeneration. We can perform this at our animal clinic, though patients are also welcome to rent the device to perform therapy at home. 

PEMF Therapy

A PEMF or Pulse Electro Magnetic Field device, like the FDA-approved Assisi Loop, promotes healing and pain management. In fact, it has been clinically proven to ease pain in in dogs, cats, and horses.

Herbal Treatment

Pets tend to respond well to herbal treatment. Herbal supplements can be added to your pet’s food or applied topically. We will recommend herbs based on your pet’s health and lifestyle.

Essential Oils

Essential oils can be used to treat certain conditions in pets, especially anxiety and stress. We would love to get to know your pet and determine which kinds of essential oils may help them.


One of the most important parts of natural pet care in general is maintaining a healthy diet. Our veterinarian will ask about your pet's typical food intake and will then help formulate a weekly diet that has all the nutrition they need. In holistic care, certain types of foods and methods of preparation can also help in fighting off many illnesses.
